It looked very Blizzard like and I clicked on the link, took me to a site that looked exactly like bnet with the login screen and all but the URL looked kinda weird...after the .net there was another .is or .es or some weird country denomination...
Yeah -- some of them are getting better at it. While I still get plenty have attempts that look like they were made by 5th graders during recess at their elementary school every now and then I see one like you are describing.

I'm guessing they take a real Blizzard notice and add something about verifying your account. As a matter of principal I never click links in emails unless it's an email I requested (ie. like a forum password reset) or from a small group of known friends.

Once I got one convincing enough that I logged into Battle.net to prove to myself there was nothing going on -- but I certainly didn't use the link in the email.
