EPIC has started warning members of its community about phishing attacks that are targeting its members.
Emails claiming to be from EPIC in an attempt to have people click links and steal personal information are being sent out by someone and EPIC urges care when acting upon any such correspondence until further notice from EPIC themselves. The warnings were issued from the Official EPIC Twitter account
Epic is experiencing a phishing attack. DO NOT CLICK LINKS in emails claiming to be from from us for now. Investigation continues.

The warning was also available on the Unreal Engine Forums where Unreal Engine developer Jeff Wilson warned
We are experiencing a phishing attack. Please DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS contained within emails claiming to be from us (anyone at Epic Games) until further notice, and as always do not give out sensitive information such as login credentials. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please post them here and we will try to answer them.
We are currently investigating and will keep this thread updated as we have more information.
