A dodgy email

I've had an email purporting to be from yahoo saying my account is to be closed on 30 April and requesting details of my password and date of birth. I assume this is a scam?

All my mail goes to spam and dont know why and i made a google account and that one got hacked and keep getting activate my yahoo account


Accounts only get hacked if you have weak passwords, or if you fall for a Phishing email and give your account details away. Never supply log on details when requested in an email for ANY reason. Just delete them. The usual ruse is an email that says your email account will be closed unless you validate it.

Close all the accounts you have. Open an Outlook.com account. They are free and have the power of Microsoft behind them.

A strong password has a mix or upper CASE and lower case letters, with number and a symbol. So something like
' EmperoR23? '.

I would treat this as a phishing email, with the sender hoping you will respond and give away your account details.
You can always contact Amazon security as they would probably like to investigate these emails.

I forgot my pattern password and my email password


Pattern Password ??????
Which email account ?????...
Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to Yahoo.com and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to Hotmail.com.
Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
You'll be asked to enter your email address.
Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
Click "Continue."
Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
Do not exit from this page.
You will need it later.
Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
Enter the confirmation code that you received.
Click "Next."
Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

I have not been able to gain access to my email fnhbong@yahoo.com Each time after I have entered my yahoo User's ID and password a window (purportedly from Yahoo) appears asking me to enter an email...


The only way to get rid of this window is to fill out the information that yahoo wants you to fill out. I agree with you on not giving out information, but yahoo defense they need that so if you do forget your password they can indentify by your security questions.
