I got a similar email quite a while back but never replied to it. But I'll be the first to agree Yahoo's email has been running slow lately. 95% of the time I have to reload individual messages as in "Trouble loading...click here to try again"

Yeah, the grammar mistakes, and asking for info that I never gave them to open the account, gave it away. I already deleted them both as spam. This one is much more convincing than the last one I got. It almost looks official with the working links included.

Haven't logged into Yahoo in a long time. Just did - they wanted my cell phone number, in addition to the standard BS, but nothing else.

oh, that reminds me. I had one last week for paypal. Wanted me to update my information. Except I'm pretty sure I never tried to get a paypal account. It looked really legit.

Re: Anyone else with Yahoo getting these emails?
Hahaha! No way you'd have to wonder if that was bullshit, E.T.!
I have not received anything similar, yet, but I'll sure be on the lookout for it. Those free e-mail services don't bother to send messages to people about deleting dead accounts. The scammers must think there are a lot of idiots around, even more than we all think there are.

Re: Anyone else with Yahoo getting these emails?
hey i got the same email too. but before i had to reply, i decided to search for it instead. when you reply the e-mail address that you will reply to becomes like this:
accountverification25@yahoo.com.hk - it doesn't seem to be an "admin" email address to me.
