I know this should go directly to Blizzard but thought it important to share.
I have this past week received 2 emails ... I deleted them immediately. Not sure where they come from but looks like a scam to get WWC account info. Here is what they look like. I don´t have a WWC account, which is what made me suspicious.
Delete anything you get like this! (dont go to the link...it really takes you elsewhere)
It has come to our attention that you are trying to sell your personal World of Warcraft account(s).
As you may not be aware of, this conflicts with the EULA and Terms of Agreement.
If this proves to be true, your account can and will be disabled.
It will be ongoing for further investigation by Blizzard Entertainment's employees.
If you wish to not get your account suspended you should immediately verify your account ownership.
You can confirm that you are the original owner of the account to this secure website with:
Link was here ******************************************* etc
Login to your account, In accordance following template to verify your account.
* First and Surname
* Secret Question and Answer
Show * Please enter the correct information
If you ignore this mail your account can and will be closed permanently.
Once we verify your account, we will reply to your e-mail informing you that we have dropped the investigation.
I don´t have a WWC account, which is what made me suspicious.
You mean you wouldn't have been suspicious if you did have a WoW account? It's such an obvious scam! I mean, they threaten to disable your account for you "trying to sell" it. But if you just verify that you own the account, they won't take action. But according to their own words, you haven't even sold it yet!
Edit: and let's not forget that Blizzard would never ask you to login to some obscure website to verify your account, which is already retarded. I'll never understand how people fall for this stuff. My dad once got tricked into it, and he's a smart guy too. I told him to change his password and notify Blizzard immediately (he had just logged in to one of those sites when I walked in).

There are huge spam archives for that. They add to them by using search engines (one among many ways) that simply searches for something like "@gmail.com". There is also malware that can locate your adress if you store it on your harddrive somewhere, like for MSN autologin.
