Origin Password Phishing Scam
Just a heads up to my followers who use Origins.
I got a really official looking letter today announcing that my password had been changed on my Origin account. It looked like it was from EA except for a few things.
One, it addressed me as my email address. I’m not sure if they have my legal name on file, but I suspect they do. This may or may not be a clincher but the second part was.
They were writing to an email address which wasn’t connected to my Origin account.
I signed on my account directly from my PC and didn’t click on any links. As suspected the password hadn’t been changed and it put me through as normal.
So a heads up friends. If you get an email and think it may be legit, go sign on to Origins through your PC – don’t use any links. If it is legit you’ll be able to do whatever you need to through the Origin software.
