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:

Hi,

It seems you are receiving phishing emails (which ask for your password details) so that unauthorised persons can gain access to your Yahoo Account.

Yahoo never asks you for your password or personal information in an unsolicited phone call or email message.

I received which is printed bellow. Is this really from YAHOO?


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...
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

They say my email is invalid


It may be that your account is shut down for a few days because Yahoo may have thought someone was trying to hack into it, in which case your account will be open again in a day or two.

If your account is simply GONE and you can't access any part of Yahoo, that's another story. You'll have to appeal directly to Yahoo if you believe your account was suspended in error.

Email Yahoo at these addresses:
Answers-abuse@cc.yahoo-inc.com
y_answrs_team@yahoo.com
cc-advoc@yahoo-inc.com (Y! Customer Support)
mail@cc.yahoo-inc.com (Email Support)

Contact Yahoo by phone:
Yahoo! Customer Service
866-562-7219

You can try leaving a message on the Yahoo! Answers Violation Notice Message Board (make sure to include the full Yahoo! Screen Name that was deleted) and within a day or two, a Yahoo employee will review your post and respond:
http://messages.answers.yahoo.com/answers/forumview?bn=SEA-ViolationsNotice

You can also fill out these "Online Help" forms, which lets Yahoo know that you're experiencing a problem, and wait for a reply from Yahoo Customer Support:
http://help.yahoo.com/fast/help/sg/mail/cgi_feedback
http://help.yahoo.com/fast/help/us/mail/cgi_access
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/general_f.html?

In order to receive communications from Yahoo when your Y!Mail account is inaccessible do to suspension or system error, you’ll need to provide them with an alternate “non-Yahoo” email address:

Soneone used my yahoo email to open an a facebook acount


It sounds like someone hacked into the facebook password server and stole passwords. If you think your yahoo email has been compromised I recommend you change your yahoo address and password as well. Try not to give out your personal email account online, but save it for your friends and family, and use an alternate email account for online registrations, etc that you can change if you have problems like this.
Identity theft is a major problem these days, with many people losing information because their computer has been compromised in some way.
It would be worth your while to set a password on the user account on your computer, to make sure no one can log onto your computer as you and use your saved passwords.
Also, go to www.malwarebytes.org and download their free antimalware program and run a full scan of your computer to make sure your system has not been compromised. Fix any problems it finds.

I hope this helps you to resolve this problem. If I've managed to answer your question, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
