Ok first off the horrible grammar gave it away, then I looked at the long, unsecure website address and figured blizzard’s account admin team could probably afford someone with half decent grammar and a secure website.
When you take to the skies astride a blazing, eagle-winged
lion, your comrades will know you mean business. Serious business. So saddle up,
because this flying mount will travel as fast as your riding skill will take
you, and it can even travel at 310% speed if you have at least one other 310%

Okay once again horrible grammar, A long unsecure link, And lets always remember Blizzard is not going to give things away for free without a benefit to themselves.
I have broken the links in both of these and i strongly encourage you not to type them in. I knew they were scams because they were not sent to my battle.net email address, They were sent to my old email address I used for wow. In order to combat these scams I recommend having battle.net sent to a secure email address (One you only use for battle.net) I also am a strong advocate of the authenticator. please take the time to read these emails and think about things like grammar and such before you click on the link. I would hate to see one of my readers and friends get their account hacked
