Hi,

Today I got message from one player:

HE: Hi, since you are from Balkan, you can earn 30days of premium on

https:// wargamingxxxxxxxx.weebly.com/

I go on that page and it wants my WG username, password and phone number connected to my acc.

I am 100% sure that it is scam,

SO BEWARE and trust no one!

Always check the url of links in e-mails, as well as the sender's address.\

Might sound paranoid, maybe it is paranoid, but it'll help protect your accounts.

If people fall for such poor scam attempts, they just f-ing deserve it.

Not sure why you felt the need to share this story with us, but tnx. I guess there are a lot of gullible people who would actually enter their ID and pass, even though they have been warned like gazillion times by WG never to do it, under no circumstances.

I was messaged years ago by a Nigerian Prince marooned on a space station who wanted my help to release millions from his bank account

I guess the poor guy is still stuck up there

Out of morbid curiosity: did they even explain why they would need the password and/or the phone number?

This...like really.  It's like getting a message/email from a "bank" asking for credit card details:))
