  • Yahoo Account Strange Email

    Has anyone else received a strange email that looks very authentic that basically says to CLICK HERE and follow the instructions or else your Yahoo account will be closed in 24 hours?
    I deleted it as some kind of a scam or a means of giving your computer a nasty virus.
    (Strictly speaking, my email is sbcglobal rather than yahoo.)

    Hasn't everyone with a computer received a message similar to this at one time or another? Never click on a link in or copy a link out of an email that you weren't expecting. If you think it's legit, open your browser and navigate to the site by manually typing in the domain name only.

      Thanks, Admin!
      This one gave me the creeps because it even had the official logos.
      It was probably from outside the USA.
      SIGH!!

        I have even seen this where they even asked for your PASSWORD. A provider would never ask for this. Another thing to look out for is the registry washer to make your PC run faster.

          You were wise to delete the message.

                It's good that you deleted the message, it looked like some kind of typical scam.
                I guess if you clicked that email some virus may have invaded your system or your Yahoo account could have been stolen from you.
                I usually delete suspiciously looking mails immediately after reading.
