Default Junk Mail? Or not?

I just recently found this in my Junk mail the other day:


Now, I have never sold(or will) sell any of my gaming accounts. Also, I have never played World of Warcraft. Or remember registering for battle.net. So I was wondering is this a scam?

Delete it then. Any mail from unknown senders is Junk/scam.

Alrighty, thanks ZeR.

I think I had a mini-heartattack there.

Brotip: Check where the email originated from, it will say something like hotmail.com, battle.net etc. Also check the urls by hovering over them. This can at times expose hidden links that would take you to a scam site if clicked.
And not to bash the forums inbuilt method of image hosting but I couldn't read jack when clicking the image to check. However what I could make out, it was an obvious fake asking for your secret question etc.

Brotip: when you click on the image you can enlarge it to the actual size by clicking the portrait button thing on the bottom right corner.

also this is a scam, does blizzard really survey their customers every 2 days? trying to get those WoW accounts gd.

Thanks everyone for the tips! I thought it was strange myself that I Blizzard sent me an email...when I didn't even register.

And thanks Uncharted, I do have a facebook account, so I'll watch out.
