Guild Wars 2 players have reported receiving emails stating the account holder had requested a password change – when they didn’t. Massively reports NCsoft is aware of the issue and has advised customers to not reply to the mail, nor do anything. Phishing attempts to obtain account information have also been reported, and since ArenNet never asks for customer passwords, users should again, ignore all attempts to cull the information out of them. It has been suggested that players use an email address created only for the game, as this is alos the user log-in along with a hard to solve password. Obvious information to those familiar with such matters, but still, grand advice.
