Still get those sometimes and they're a pain in the backside. On top of the spam I used to get when I used to play WoW.

Congratulations! Your world of Warcraft account to receive compensation.This is Blizzard Entertainment's apology

We will give you 50000 gold coins free of charge and rare mounts (Dark Phoenix), I hope you can restart the game

Thats just an example of what I STILL get, months after I stopped playing WoW. The people who do scam e-mails obviously excell in the grammer and creativity department. Was a field day sometimes though for keyloggers etc.
