Someone is Phishing for accounts

Well I got this in an Email today... now to give you some back story. My account was hacked twice, on the second time (after i got my shit back) I changed the Email address to which my account is linked. So when I saw this I was like "WTF !!!" but seeing as it is a way to scam people I figured I would share with you this email.
Enjoy.

Greetings!
It has come to our attention that you are trying to sell/trade your personal World of Warcraft account(s).

This action is taken because we at Blizzard Entertainment take these sales
quite seriously. We need to confirm you are the original owner of the account.
This is easiest done by confirming your personal information along with concealed information about your account.

you realize e-mailing that address wont' do anything. The address is populated with the phishers address upon hitting reply and it won't resolve properly to a @blizzard.com domain just an fyi
