I received the same message from a different account yesterday, but I thought it was just a one-off thing, I received another one today, I know it's not the same account because I blacklisted the other one, and this one today after seeing the message.

 

This account has no battles, and was created today as you can see, 8. April (travanj in Croatian) 2018., created early in the morning too because look at the timestamp of the message.

 

Just wanna know, has anybody else been getting these messages?... WG, you gotta do something about this, I feel insecure.

Friend of mine was asking about the exact same message he got when playing in the early hours of Saturday, kinda reminds me of the "free gold" messages the forums used to be filled with every sat-sun morning before the moderation team could clean them out. You should propably blurr the link out.

Just ignore them. Or take screenshot and report it to support. 

 

Problem is, these scum and set up new accounts just as quick as WG can close them.

Nah I think I should leave it in so WG knows who and what is doing what and how. If they see this at all.

I received the same message from a different account yesterday.

 

Same for me and a friend. And the same account name. I guess that they are able to use the chat system from outside WoT to automate this.

Yeah, I've had a couple of those exact messages. It would be nice if WG could find a way to break whatever they are using to mass-spam people.
