imagine my surprise...

...when the obvious phishing attempt from Wizards.com to "reactivate my forum account" since it had been idle for a year was *actually* from them, and the "custhelp.com" link forwarded to the actual site, which picked up my cookie from my having logged in elsewhere and didn't even ask me for my password!

Who would have thought that custhelp.com could possibly be real? :)

It's an outsourced-help service. If you read the boilerplate text on various products you'll see that a bunch of companies have outsourced to them.

It was a break down ... that message was meant for actual old and unused accounts, not us.
