Phishing e-mails claiming to come from arenanet are coming around again.

The way these work is they ask you to log in on a link they provide DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK the link will take you to their website where they ask you to give your username and password, then steal your login information, here is an example of the e-mail.

Greetings

We are sorry to inform you that your login account emailname@email.com will be shut down or partially limited within 72 hours due to currency transactions or abnormal login. If you want to remove restrictions, please click the following link to validate:

Well if the link actually leads to guildwars2.com, then it is probably legit or the hacker has access to the actual gw2 servers.

But I guess the displayed URL is not the URL linked.
