Blizz Support: RoS phishing scam warning

Greetings all,

Just a quick heads up here - although phishing scams are pretty common, we've received more reports than usual regarding a particular message for Reaper of Souls which encourages you to click a link and return back to account management. Please keep in mind that if you receive an official Closed Beta invitation from Blizzard we DO NOTencourage you to click any links in the email, and instead ask that you attempt to try the key out directly through your account management by logging over directly to (without redirecting through the email).

From the recent article about the Beta:

How will I know if I'm selected to participate in the beta??
If you are selected to participate in the Reaper of Souls Closed Beta, you will receive an invite via email. Opt-in invites will always be sent to the email address associated with your account, while Closed Beta keys may be sent to other email addresses.

To help avoid phishing attempts, if you believe you've received an invite to the Closed Beta, it's best to refrain from clicking on any links in the email(s) you receive. If you received an opt-in invite, you can verify that your account has been granted a Closed Beta license in Account Management. If you were sent a Closed Beta key, you can add it manually by visiting the Add or Upgrade a Game page.

Thanks for reading! Happy New Year!
