That's normal for phishing emails. If you've never seen that before you're lucky.

Alternatively, they sometimes have browser exploits in the link if you click it that generally target adobe products.

These are big with blizzards accounts. You will get emails like once a day. I also saw a runescape phishing email ,but I don't even play that.

Thanks for the heads up, m8.

  I think we are about due to have a sticky just to give people some general info about Phishing emails. What to watch for and the proper way to address one you are not sure about. i.e. no clicky links in email. If you think one 'may' be legit, go directly to the sites customer service or phone them, etc. Forward suspect emails to abuse@TheRealSite  the email is pretending to be from.

  For an added bonus please post them here on the forums with headers so those of us with too much free time on their hands can find out who is doing it and have a little fun ourselves. ;p

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

They couldn't even spell MtGox properly in their fake link.

spb.docker.ru resolves to an Apache test page.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

that is likely because spd.docker.ru is not a webserver but is only being used to bounce mails through.....
