Hi there just wanted to give every one a heads up, I just received the following email from riotgames@email.leagueoflegends.com, there is some much wrong with this email, not to mention that I don't even own poppy, so if you guys get the same email don't believe it.

Greetings Summoner,
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for supporting our game, League of Legends.

We recently noticed that you had purchased Poppy with IP within two weeks prior to us announcing the reduction in this champion's price.

As a service to you and others who have recently purchased this champion, we have recently refunded you 2700IP which is the difference in the original amount and sale amount so that you essentially receive the champion at sale price. If you have purchased additional champions that have met the same requirements, you should have recently received a refund for those as well.

Note that you will need to attempt to purchase a champion (but do not have to complete the purchase) in order to see your updated total IP.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact support@riotgames.com with the subject "Proactive Champion IP Compensation." Be sure to include your username and summoner name in the message as well as your question or concern.

This is just our way of saying thank you to our loyal players and we hope you enjoy your new IP. Good luck on the battlefield!

Sincerely,
Shaun "BlueFire" Randall
Proactive Support Specialist
Riot Games

While it IS odd you get this email when you did not purchase Poppy... it's not a scam.
They do not ask for your password and the provided email is indeed from Riot Games.
Also, due to the recent IP-price changes Riot has been refunding an amount of IP equal to the difference between current cost and former cost. This only applies, as stated in the mail, if you bought the champ 2 weeks prior to the change.
So in the worst case... you get no IP, while it was promised. It the most opportune case you receive IP when you actually should not.
What could also be the case is that you bought any of the other cost-reduced champs, but the wrong champ has been specified in your email.

They are taking nothing from you. How are they scamming you?

If anything - someone is scamming THEM! Lol.

EDIT: No need for downvotes on the OP people - come on.

e.leagueoflegends.com is the LEGIT Email domain for riot games as said by Pendragon, the email I got was from email.leagueoflegends.com, so it seems like a scam to me :S

Recently I got an email from the exact same address telling me that I'd gained a massive bounty of 5 IP for helping out with the Tribunal.

#1 scammers, 5 IP, no scam links.
