Im posting this here on behalf of a friend because neither of us have any idea how to resolve his issue.
Basically, he received an e-mail that was in chinese with some English. Running it via google translate, and checking the links on it, we have been able to find out, and this is for definate, that someone has created a US battle.net account using his email address.
The email he got is basically the one asking you to verify your email, and the link for it is 100% legitimate. The link itself goes to: https://us.battle.net/account/email/confirm.xml?ticket=(removed just incase). We basically tried it out by disconnecting a computer from the internet entirely, and clicked the link as well, and this was the page it attempted to go to.
So far we can tell its not been activated as the e-mail is a day old and was unread in his inbox. So we do not thing the e-mail has been compromised and that the person is just hoping we were dumb enough to activate for him. In anycase the e-mail address password has been changed to be safe. He also runs the e-mail from his own domain and webserver and checked the logs and it has not been accessed by anyone other than himself.
However the only issue left now is dealing with this rogue account. We cannot be 100% sure its not been activated as they may have found a way, but either way my friend wants it gone as he doesn't want someone using an account thats connected to his email address.
We are just unsure about who to contact because its a US battle.net account and since we are in the UK we have no idea what to do. I don't think he would want to spent a load of money calling all the way to America to speak to the US support, and we are unsure if the EU support can do anything about an account created in America. As well as this we are not even sure how to go about proving anything in this situation.
So if anyone can provide any idea about what we can do please can you post and reply adn advise us. Sorry for the long post as well, I just wanted to make sure all possible relevant information was included.
Thank you :D
