Another 'phishing' scam!

2005-10-07 - By Svarthol

Dear players.

Again, some enterprising person has sent out mass mails to a number of our players, in an attempt to get them to part with their account information, this time signing the fakes with my name. Needless to say, I'm not very pleased about this and can only look forward to locating this person's account, if he/she has one. If not, I just may send him/her a trial key, so I can have the pleasure of banning him/her. Ahem. Here is a transcript of the letter:
