Hello ****_***_******

Our database records show that your account was was recently trying to
be accessed from a different IP address than the registered one.
We had to intercept the connection from that IP address. To prevent
further attempts like this we may have to delete accounts unless you
are the original owner of this account. We advise that you confirm
your identity* or your account will face deletion. This is a simple test
to prove that you did not "hack" this account and that only the
person with this E-Mail address can access this account.

Below is a reminder of your current Kings of Chaos account information.

Username: ****_***_******
E-Mail: ********@***********
Password: CANNOT BE DISCLOSED

*THIS TEST IS TO CONFIRM THAT THIS IS YOUR ACCOUNT,
REPLY WITH YOUR CURRENT DETAILS OR YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED.

You can access Kings of Chaos at http://www.kingsofchaos.com

Thanks for playing!

Yeah, there have been a lot of these messages going around. The admins don't ask for login info (they can get it easy enough :P)

This is a reminder that Kings of Chaos will NEVER ask for your password. There are several emails and in-game messages being sent out by individuals asking users to confirm their accounts by replying with their password, or risk losing their account. None of these are from the Kings of Chaos team. Do not reply to them.and as for that email, its from hotmail.com, not kingsofchaos.com ;)

Send the info + a screenshot/whatever to one of the admins... dunno which one is supposed to get this info though. Most people I think say rocco, so rocco@kingsofchaos.com

they really should have some more context-specific emails though, like cheaters@kingsofchaos.com or something <_<

oh well...

please take in to consideration that it is possible to fake email adress people but, This message seams like it is trying to get your trust by guesing your email adress that was used in a fourm or posted some where. you should use a diff email adress for koc account which you dont use on public placers like fourms

Expecially since the questions have been answered. ;)
