"Free 7 Days" Scam Warning

I just recieved an e-mail from "Blizzard" that managed to get into my inbox rather than spam with the title "Return to World of Warcraft with 7 Days of Game Time".
It looks relatively convincing, but upon further investigation I found it to be fraud by looking at the full e-mail header:
From Blizzard Entertainment Thu Jul 7 04:29:56 2011
X-Apparently-To: [MY-EMAIL] via 98.137.26.146; Thu, 07 Jul 2011 04:29:54 -0700

There are also a few clues in the e-mail itself such as the "Der" instead of "Dear." Also, it claims 4.2 to be "Rise of the Zalandari"

If you actually click the link it takes you to a site with a domain of ".tk" which is completely fake.

I hope nobody falls for this!

Edit: I attached an image of the e-mail.
