Hello.

If the E-Mail said Dear King Badoosk it might be ok. If it said Dear Player or Hi, then it's VERY suspect as Jagex know who you are.

I would be very cautious of clicking any links on the E-Mail as I suspect they may hack you. So best
not
too click any.

You can ask further questions if you want.

If you want you could forward the E-Mail to Jagex so they can review it. E-Mail is:-
reportphishing@jagex.com

This may also help. https://support.runescape.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115001257125-Suspicious-emails

Also moved this to Account Help section. Someone in here may know more then I do.

Hi King Badoosk

That is definitely a phishing email.

* Do not click any links *

The 'from' address on an email is easy to fake, so never rely on that to judge the authenticity of an email. You have to examine the contents.

See the pages Tuffty and I linked above for advice on recognising phishing emails and websites.
