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:

My email account has been taken over and my contacts are getting emails from UK asking for money. What can I do to fix it? account with problem is connietolleson@sbcglobal.net


Change your E-mail password. Contact your ISP (SBC) and tell them that your ID has been "hijacked" -- if you don't contact them, they may "freeze" your account, and cut-off your Internet access.

In case of a hacked account send a mail describing your problem to account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.com. 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!

or

Send an email to Yahoo Account Security Department account account-security-help@cc.yahoo-inc.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 your account.

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.

Good luck.

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.

Looks like a scam to me. Notice the cc.yahoo-inc.com part of the address. This is almost a surefire scam.
