Identify theft is a scary crime! Capcom warns of phishing emails for Resident Evil Village

Listen, we know that getting early access to a hotly anticipated game is a great thing, but you have to make sure to be careful. What’s more frightening than going head-to-head with Lady Dimitrescu unarmed is having your identity stolen by scammers that are falsely emailing you!

Here’s the official message from Capcom:

We’re sending this message as we’ve been made aware that there are currently emails circulating that pretend to contain “Early Access invitations” to Resident Evil Village. The sender address is being displayed as “no-reply(at)capcom(dot)com”.

We want to inform you that these messages are NOT from Capcom and appear to be phishing attempts by an unauthorized third party. If you have received such a message, please DO NOT download any files or reply, and delete the message immediately.

If you are unsure of the authenticity of correspondence from Capcom, please contact us directly to verify.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a Capcom PR contact should you have any questions.

Thanks and all the best,

The Capcom PR team
