Today Carmencita was approached on MSN Messenger by a person claiming to be a sales rep for a company called "IPS Company". This person offered to rent her level 70 characters for $20 a week, in exchange they would use them to farm gold.
The person then sent her a link to their website, which I will NOT post here, that was very poorly done and incomplete. I'll note that it utilized some flash, but I did not see the recently discovered flash exploit.
The languaged used by the "sales rep" and the very poorly done website indicated to me that it was a scam designed to acquire her account information/password. The person used language such as "hehe
", "plz","acc", and was otherwise very unprofessional.
I'm posting this as a warning to everyone that this is happening.
Unfortunately, it would seem they may be doing this now while the worldofwarcraft.com site is intermittent pending updates so people cannot change their passwords easily.
No worries, Carmen's account was not compromised.
