There are people out there who are very, very excited about playing Diablo 3. There are also some pretty unscrupulous ass hats out there. When you mix the two together, you get the fake Diablo 3 invite I get in my spam folder about once a week.
Greetings from Blizzard Entertainment!

Thanks and see you all in the Burning Hells!
Now why am I so certain this is fake? I don’t have a Blizzard account. I’ve never played World of Warcraft or Diablo. Well, I’ve played them, just not on my own PC or under my own name. So be careful out there. I know I’m excited about certain Beta invites too, but make sure they are legit. This has been a friendly service announcement from That F’ing Monkey.
