So a few weeks ago I noticed the red alert notification on my Gmail inbox saying that something fishy happened. I looked at the data and it was a Chinese IP address. I thought for about 5 minutes that, “Hay, that’s a little fishy” then immediately forgot (because I have a short attention span >.>).
Well, today I received an email from Blizzard (yes, I checked the header information) and it seems legit. Apparently, some Chinese person named “Zhang” used my email address to sign up for a gold farming account. So I downloaded all of my Google account data and deleted that account.
Don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world. But some things here will be changing slowly as I move my Google-related services to a different account.
Thanks for your patience!!
