Re: yahoo email asking for personal information
You must think.
Why would Yahoo, which already controls your account, be asking for your password?
There's a link in here that tells you how to report your fake e-mail: http://security.yahoo.com/article.html;_ylc=X3oDMTFhOWJhMGZmBF9TAzU2NTAwMDAwMgRhaWQDMjAwNjEwMjYwMwRjbmFtZQNmZWF0dXJlZA--?aid=2006102603

In case of a hacked account send a mail describing your problem to
firstname.lastname@example.org. If this doesn't help, call
Yahoo: 1-408-349-1572, or 1+
866-562-7219 then press on #2 explain to a customer service person
what happened. They will ask you to do certain things and then they
compare your original info with the changed info. Within 24 hrs you
should get your account back!
Send an email to Yahoo Account Security Department account email@example.com mentioning the problem.
Just keep in mind that you have to be polite with your writing.
1. Provide them the details of the entire story.
2.Mention the time and date when you accessed your account for the last time.
3.Give the password that you last used to accessed your account.
4. Most importantly provide the all the information you entered when
you register your account or just the information when you last updated
5. Wait for the response, do not write several times for they will
consider your messages as abuse and harassment. Be patient for you are
not alone in this situation.
This is a prank email and being sent to us by scammers and non-professional hackers who try to steal your password and user information. Please don't ever reveal you identify rather simply reply them using a rude sentences. I do this often so that they will not ever send those emails again. This is a shameful practice since they even don't know how to hack, but asking an individual to give his/her pasword and username.... It's not even a kind of phishing, but direct information collection..
So don't ever give them your password and user information. These are scammers... scammers..
If yahoo has a server problem, they'll simply shift or update to a new server.. there's nothing like this that users are gonna have problem...
n case of a hacked account send a mail describing your problem to firstname.lastname@example.org. If this doesn't help, call Yahoo: 1-408-349-1572 (personal account) and 800-318-0783 (business account), explain to a customer service person what happened. They will ask you to do certain things and then they compare your original info with the changed info. Within 24 hrs you should get your account back!
This is absolutely a fake mail / hacking. Please don't provide any information if anybody especially ask your password and alternative id etc. Ignore such mails to protect your details. (if this solution find helpful to you please rate it)
