This is a direct copy of a post from Bridger over on the official forums, just to help spread the word!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have become aware of a 'phishing' website that is attempting to gain access to people's PlayNC Master Account details.

You may come across this site in one of two ways:

1. If you receive an email claiming to be from PlayNC or NCsoft, with the following text, please delete it and do not click the link provided in the mail:

Dear PlayNC Client,

At PlayNC the greatest responsability to our customer is the safekeeping of confidential information you have entrusted to us and using it in a responsable manner. A fundamental element of safeguarding your confidential information is to provide protection against unauthorized access or use of this information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal guidelines to guard your nonpublic personal information against unauthorized access.

At this time we need you to renew your online account with our existing database( or it will be deactivated and deleted ). As soon as our database will be updated we need to make a few important anouncements to our customers so please renew your PlayNC account with no delay.

Please click the link bellow to continue: *http://secure.plaync.com/plaync_manage.pl*

Our database will be instantly updated.

We are committed to the responsible use and protection of customer information on our website. At PlayNC we are dedicated to providing you with exceptional service and to ensuring your trust. If you have any questions regarding our services, please check the website or call our customer service.

Thank you,
PlayNC Customer Support

2. If at any time you encounter a link to the following website, do not visit the site:

*http://secure-plaync.com/*


The website in question will ask you to 'verify' your account information, including your password. This information can be used to gain unauthorised access to your account.

Remember, NCsoft staff will never ask you for your password. To access your PlayNC Master Account, you should always go to www.plaync.com (European players should automatically be redirected to eu.plaync.com - this is normal, and not a cause for concern).

For more information and advice about account security, please see the PlayNC Security FAQ.

It always pays to be cautious about e-mails of this type.

be safe
