Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If you receive an email asking you to update your banking details or that you've won a huge sum of money from Yahoo! then these are scams. Firstly a bank will NEVER ask you to update your account details through an email, don't under any circumstances click on any links within a mail like this. Secondly, when you receive a mail stating that YOU have won a huge sum of money from some lottery in some foreign country or from Yahoo! this too is fake. The Yahoo! Corporation in Holland Lottery scam is one of them. Again don't by any means reply to it or send them any of your personal information. Contact Yahoo! here and click on Mail under M in the list, this will take you to a page to login. Login, then click on the heading Got Spam? Report it here as shown in the following picture:
This will take you to a page where you need to tell Yahoo! everything about the scam, including the Full Headers and Contents of the mail. I will explain how to get the full headers of an e-mail now.
How to copy the full Headers in Yahoo Mail!
1) With the e-mail open, click Actions to the top right.
2) This will display a drop down menu shown here:
3) Click on Full Header to display the following window:
4) Copy the entire text (all the words in this window) to the headers box:
5) Then copy the contents of the mail to the next box:
6) And then click submit.
Easy as that! This will enable Yahoo! to filter such scam e-mails in the main server and prohibit them from entering anyone's account in the future, and it's all thanks to you!! Good Job! Feel great, you have just saved a huge amount of people from falling for these ingenious scams.
