RuneScape – Final warning: Legal actions for Real-World Trading (case No. zbssPHjlj) 4

I don’t know what Runescape is as I never play it.  I’m sure this is a scam, although I’m not entirely sure what the scam is, but it probably involves hacking into your Runescape account.
Ignore this scammer.  If there is a problem with your account, log-in in the usual way (NOT via the link in this email) and look in your account area.
Dear Customer,
We have strong evidence that you may have attempted a transfer of RuneScape accounts or traded virtual items outside of the game environment.

Real-world trading destroys the economy of RuneScape, violates your agreement with us, and any player that continues to engage in the illegal activity has no place in our community.

All of your accounts, main and otherwise, are now on our watch list and will be monitored for real-world trading. Regardless of who you are or how long you’ve been with us, if you decide to real-world trade ever again we will have no hesitation in: (1) permanently removing your account from our wonderful community in order to protect Jagex’s rights, and (2) naming you as a defendant in Jagex Limited v. John Does, which is a lawsuit based on antitrust law violations that is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (Civ. Action No. SANC-V12-00972-CGC).

If you decide to ignore this email and instead continue Real-World Trading, we (Jagex Ltd) reserve our rights to pursue statutory damages against you for between $200 to $2,500 per act of past, present, and/or future real-world trading in accordance with 18 U.S.C. 1304(c)(2).

In addition, new infractions have been added to your RuneScape account. If left unchallenged your account will be temporarily or permanently suspended.

Please complete the following security form to monitor your account’s status or to appeal the infractions you have recieved:
http://secure.runescape.com/zbssPHjlj/m=weblogin/g=runescape/index.ws?mod=offence-appeal&ssl=1

Please note: Due to recent technical problems, some accounts were unfairly punished. Most of the void infractions have been removed. You should visit the appeal section to appeal any unjustified infractions received due to system errors.

Sincerely,
Mod Mark.

    Also, I forgot to say this in my last post, but since you might not have noticed it, that link you can see is DIFFERENT than where the link leads to.

    You copy and pasted “http://secure.runescape.com/zbssPHjlj/m=weblogin/g=runescape/index.ws?mod=offence-appeal&ssl=1”, however if you actually click on it (which you should never do, please turn this into plain text so someone doesn’t actually do it),
    you will be redirected to “http://secure.runescape.com.m-ssl-login.ws/zbssPHjlj/m=weblogin/g=runescape/index.ws?mod=offence-appeal&ssl=1″. You can confirm this just by HOVERING over the URL, you don’t even need to click it!

    Note the “m-ssl-login.ws”. This is their website, the “secure.runescape.com.” part is some sort of multi-subdomain type thing.

    It’s not a “scam”, it’s a “phish”. They’re trying to get you to login so that they can gain your password information. And if you use the same email and password for everything like some people do for some unknown reason, well then they just got ALL of your stuff include your bank account and credit card information if you do online banking.
