Is this E-Mail a scam?


Jay959

Question

Basically, opened up my emails for the first time in awhile, saw this email and found it a bit suspicious. Did anyone else receive a similar email? Why would they give you a limited option of specifically these frames? Why Wukong and Wukong Prime? Can you claim one of these warframes while already having an account or do you need to create a new one? Why is there no other text in the email that could explain this? Why does it look so scuffed? Honestly I am just confused.

If this is real, then I have a message to the warframe PR team. PLEASE MAKE IT EASIER TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN IN AN EMAIL INSTEAD OF THIS CONFUSING STUFFunknown.png

This is very obviously not official.

You yourself listed a bunch of clear red flags, so... case closed?

If you can, check where the links go without clicking them. I'd bet money they don't go to warframe.com. Maybe a variant with some spelling errors, though. 😅

I have clicked the link, right when I saw it... I instantly regreted it. The link itself looks legit^ Maybe it goes through an ip grabber though

I don't know how Google ad services work, but at least the embedded link looks ok, as in: the domain name is actually warframe.com. 🤔

I still wouldn't have clicked a link like that, with all the obfuscation and encoded data in there.

 

If that's official, then it's a mind boggingly stupid move of DE to send a mail like that.

That's what I'm saying, it's really a bit fishy

Who sent the email.

It says "Warframe.com" there should be a full email address from the sender, just check it.

It's officially marked as an ad, can't check the email address nor reply to it it just says Warframe, Warframe.com
That's one of the reasons why I believe it's official but still terrible marketing imo
