I found someone on the dutch version of ePay who bought a lot of them and sells them again.
Though I pay double the price (14 each) I still think it's worth it. Better to pay 14 euro then to get hacked and have all the trouble getting my account back.

Fair do's, personally I wouldn't get them anywhere else than the original source but I should imagine you'll have no issues :)

Seeing as the new expansion is looming, there will be a higher rise in phishing/hacking/fake emails or in-game messages from "Blizzard", all in order to gain access to your account.

So this is a reminder to read the first post, we HIGHLY recommend getting an authenticator for your account! If you have an iPhone, its FREE, you can't argue with that!

Thank you.

Important information update from our friends at Blizzard: http://eu.blizzard.com/en-gb/securityupdate.html

Summary: Blizzard data servers subject to illegal access, passwords (encrypted), email addresses, and secret question answers possibly taken from North American accounts, and email addresses possibly taken from EU accounts.

Even though the EU seems to have escaped the major brunt of this illegal intrusion, it would still be EXTREMELY wise to change your battle.net password, and for the LOVE OF GOD (again) make sure your battle.net password is not the same as any other passwords, ESPECIALLY the one you use to access the email address associated with your battle.net account. Also, get an Authenticator.

Over and out.
