I wanted to drop you a quick note to warn you of a scam that has been going on recently. People have been going onto Facebook and into the game and pretending to be me -- or another member of the KI staff -- and offering to give out "free items" or "crowns" in exchange for providing them your user account and password information.
We have said this before, but it bears repeating:
KingsIsle Employees will NEVER ask you for your account information or password. NEVER. (Why would we? We already have your account information!)
If someone is asking you for your account information, that individual is likely trying to trick you and steal your account. DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM!
KingsIsle staff members in the game have a badge that says, "KingsIsle Support" -- if someone is claiming to work for KingsIsle and cannot or will not show you this badge, please report them immediately.*
Some players have asked if I maintain a Facebook fan profile. I do, in fact, and I post there periodically. For those of you who are interested, it can be found here:
ANY other profile page claiming to be me is also a fake/imposter, likely created to steal the accounts (and crowns) from unsuspecting players. My ONLY official fan page is the one listed above.
Thank you for your time and attention, for enjoying our game.

Thank you! That's a lesson we try to teach our players every day! Giving away your password is the same as giving away your Wizards forever.
