Remember that 2nd Beta key I told you about that I thought I’d just gotten? Right on the heels of the first one?
Well, I did not click on the link offered in the e-mail. Hovering over it I now see it is a worldofwarcraft dot oxyhost dot com address.
It starts out
Wrath of the Lich King™ Beta Test
Congratulations! You have been selected to participate in the beta test of World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King™.
In the beta test you’ll get an opportunity to test the first zones of the new Northrend continent, and the new levels above 70. We look forward to your feedback on the overall experience, including quests, monsters, zones, aesthetics, and more. We would also appreciate reports on any bugs you may encounter. These can be logged using the /bug command explained below.
I wonder how many people have fallen for this?
The real deal’s first paragraph does not start with Congratulations! The real deal’s paragraph ends with Welcome!
Be careful, and be absolutely certain about where your clicking will take you.
The real beta invite sends you direct to http://beta.worldofwarcraft.com.
The fake beta invite is to a site, which I won’t repeat here, hosted by this oxyhost, as per above.
It’s always a good idea to question stuff too good to be true. In this case it wasn’t. Be careful. Blizzard does not need to use free hosting websites!
