I received an email, supposedly from "support" at eve online, telling me I had been billed for a month and providing a handy little link to click if I had any questions. They did seem to know some of my personal details, (which is a tad alarming as my first reaction was "scam") so I ask you, the people:
1) legit?
2) Has anyone else got an email like this? I've been playing eve for a while and never received an email when I was billed.

For the record I didn't click the link, I have changed all my passwords and am running a spybot search atm

Cheers

Well my general rule is that if it asks for any information what so ever, or if it's some prize that you somehow won to fanfest or beta or some such, then it is a scam. If you pay subscription via credit card subscription and you knew that you would be paying this month then you wouldn't have a need to go to that link, scam or not. Though I have never been emailed for my subscriptions, so definately a scam.

At any rate, good move and goodluck.

Believe its something new CCP is doing. Probably something to do with the whole box-set public thing.

This is a new feature to our billing system, every time you make a payment you will receive an email confirming the payment, or to let you know if the payment was not successful.

It appears to be legitimate. Thanks for your help.
