What are you saying? Partyaccount.com belongs to PartyPoker. Also, mind the "s"

https just means the the communication between your pc and the web server is encrypted. Phishers can use this technology as easily as any legitimate business.

I'm not disputing that URL is a valid Party URL. I donno, just an fyi.

I got the same thing a year ago or so, and tried to log in and it didn't work. I got pretty freaked out and immediately went to the proper partypoker site and changed my password. I also e-mailed support and asked about the site, but they said it was legit so I didn't think much of it. I didn't really think about the fact that the partypoker support probably wasn't smart enough to see that it was a phishing site though. Getting a bit freaked out about this again now, maybe I should change all my passwords.
