I got this while I was about to join a custom game. It's proof that an account named Riot sent me this. Are they re-opening Doran's workshop, or is this a hacker? He hasn't asked me for my password or anything yet.

I'm quite confident that it's fake but I've put an inquiry in. Thank you for the report guys.

I don't see any reason Riot would contact you with an unrecognizable account name through the in-game client.</td></tr></table>
Community stuff is always tackled through recognizable, highly visible routes. Questionable conversations about applications and "super secret opportunities" should be viewed with skepticism.
Be careful with your info, folks; while we have a lot of smart people working to keep the game secure, there will always be nefarious types trying to impersonate Rioters.
