Is this really from WaniKani? Seems like a scam

nvm lol …

I’m not even sure I would understand what that means. And why does WaniKani know your “student ID” and your “teacher’s ID.”

It would be more efficient to email them directly through their contact email: hello@wanikani.com. That way you can hear from the horse’s mouth.

Did you… check the email address?

Creeped out lol

We definitely didn’t send any emails about World Teacher Day or ask about any student/teacher ID… Is it actually coming from a WaniKani or Tofugu email address?

If you send us an email with a bit more information, we’ll take a look at what’s going on.

Those tricky and evil teachers, all they want to do is steal people’s information.

While we’re on the topic of scam awareness, make sure to never give away your credit card details to any Nigerian prince offering to get you to level 60. They’ll keep the cake for themselves.

Sounds fishy, if you see other people’s information in the spreadsheet … a very lazy scam.

I’ll have you know I am the son of a recently deceased Nigerian king, who has left over his inheritance of 100 million dollars worth of gold to me, pending only my payment of $10,000 for shipping! At least thats what the Bank of Nigeria told me in an email…

Only legit if the Bank of Nigeria had a barrister email you from a Yahoo or Google account.

That’s quite an odd email scam. Still a scam though. WK doesnt ask for that kind of info when you sign up, so, it shouldnt need that info now.

Let the devs know then delete it.
