    Default I received a pretty suspicious email, might be a scam

    The email is sent by "Ubisoft Technology", and it said that my account has expired and will result in an account deletion in 7 days, and asked me to reply to the email with the email of my GrowID and my password (Literal irony, they said on the email's top line saying that "our team would NEVER ask for your password")

    Since I do not trust this, I'd want a confirmation from the team

    The email is ubisofttechnology@gmail.com

    well of course it's a scam

    also near the end of the scam e-mail it says "... I would suggest ...", while every single top company e-mails always uses "we"

    Definitely a fake email, Ubisoft (or any company really) doesn't ask for passwords. Just ignore it or add it to your email's blacklist.

    Clearly just a way to scam someone. "I suggest adding password" while email itself says "Ubisoft Technology" and almost in every sentence he used "we", but made a small mistake afterwards. Desperately trying to get something that they can't have.
    Good leadership is a key to success and success is key to good leadership.

    I like how it started out saying "our team would never ask for your password" and then "I suggest adding your password"

    I always picture Growtopia as a training ground for young scammers until they graduate into the real world scams.

    LOL why is this facts though.
    Give a man a wl, and he will learn to rely on you.
    Teach a man to make wls and you'll set him up for success.
