First off a actual "Special Force Operator" wont tell a stranger (or even most acquaintances, that that is what they do for a living.
So sorry but if that is his story... that is exactly what it is, A story.

What's more, if he were really military, he would have the Honer to give you the truth, SORRY!

SOURCE: 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:

Tips to avoid phishing


Phishing is one form of internet fraud wherein unscrupulous individuals extract personal information and use them for illegal transactions.

Here some sample of phishing.
In some selected trading websites, phishing is commonly done in order to swindle other members of the site. example of phishing sites area adult content websites. these sites area easy to create and they generate lots of internet traffic. this is the perfect place to get information. Former members our company (who has been banned) commit this type of offense. they are called "carders", people who use other people's information for their own benefit. to this day, there are countless number of carders in the world wide web as I know it, and this should serve as a warning to all.

Doesn't it make you wonder that a seller, who can sell items valued at less 100,000 at half the price?at close scrutiny, you will discover that person doesn't have own car, commutes to do meet ups and you can't fathom how they could afford such a luxury item. this is how carders operates and this has a lot to do with phishing they create fake websites and make it attractive to internet surfers.
Anyone who wants to buy the items displayed there will surely input their credit card details and other personal information which will then used to make fake credit cards. these fake cards will then be used to purchase merchandise from legitimate websites like Amazon.com, newegg, etc.
after 2-3 weeks after they received their items, you'll be surprised that your credit card statement will reflect purchases you did not make! this is a classic "phishing" technique.

Another form of information extraction is by establishing a fake company and asking for resumes online. We have received reports of incidents like this be careful about sharing personal information. even within the other known website "phishers" any personal information they collect will be used to open up fake credit card accounts which they determine the credit limit. these accounts will be used again to make purchases in your name without your knowledge.

Emails are also prone to phishing. phishers will create a fake Gmail or Yahoo which claims to have lost their database and needs you to re-enter your username and password. Do not fall prey to this sort of charade. the information they gather from you will be used to access your email accounts.

Tips to avoid Phishing.
1. Make sure a website is legitimate before giving away credit details and personal information.
2. Avoid submitting resumes or biodata when you doubt the legitimacy of an agency
3. If someone sends a private message asking for personal information, Do not give it unless you know the person.
4. Be careful when signing in to your email account. If you finish checking your emails, please sign out. Do not leave your account sign in, specially internet cafe shop.

I hope this information will be helpful.

What is a email


An email is your gateway to the outside of your computer and is called an email address. Giving your email address freely to anyone it will soon become an open door to all the good and bad people. Good people would be friends and recognized companies with websites, such as banks and government agencies. The bad ones are the ones that constantly and repeatedly send you spam mail, usually laced with viruses, malware, spyware, Trojans, worms and a number of other unauthorized emails containing rude, often offensive material. On top of this you will also get scam mail from people who claim you won the lottery, or you have some millions left by a mysterious person, or even emails sent b crooks who claim you're a beneficiary of some large amount of money deposited in a Nigerian bank, even emails sent to you from the US by people who claim some relative you know in the US has left you a large sum, usually 2 or 4 million dollars, basically anything to make you email (write) back and fall into the trap because once you respond these scammers do two things. The first is they got your emails and if you respond a second time, you will notice that your computer doesn't run as it was running before you emailed back to these scammers because they have sent you a malware, or spyware, a bug that might sit in your computer so that the next time you do an Internet transaction or banking, where you expose your account and password, the bug is programmed to record your details and send it back to the waiting crooks. Normally this scam is done in Nigeria, but they have cells in the US and UK, so, it's hard to catch them. The second part is, they also sell your email address to other organization who then will persistently sent you more spam mail, offensive mail and fake promotion that someone who won the lottery wish to share the prize with you, when in fact there is no person who won the lottery and no such prize sharing. There are also people who claim that you have won a prize in a fake Facebook competition, and also those who send you a email claiming that you are a beneficiary of someone who died.

Suddenly your email address has brought all this problem in your life because you had thought to give it to just about anyone, even those video game companies and middlemen. Game companies and middlemen such as Steam/Valve, Activision, Ubisoft UPlay and any other game developers and middlemen alike or any websites that demand your personal details by forcing you to register your game, and if you don't register they simply will not unlock your purchased game. If this too much for you to bear, do not buy such games, do not give your email address to anyone you do not know and do not give your main email address. Make an email address for these people and then change it once they start sending you unsolicited, offensive emails that you had not requested. Sometimes it's best if you keep your castle (computer) bridge up all the times to stop unwanted emails. Use a trusted email blocker. It might help you in the long run, or you lose. Your email is like a wallet or purse. Would you leave these unguarded? Well, if the answer is no, then the same is with your email address. No one should have it except the people you know and trust.

Cant send or receive mail--created a new account --still doesn't work


Is your internet access working properly? Did you have to confirm your identity through another email to use the email service provider? Sometime when you create certain accounts online, another email address is needed to make sure you are a real live person and not a computer setting up a fake account for spam. Also make sure that this site is indeed a true site, and not a fake one that will steal your information.

I can't login in fb accout because someone reported me fake but it is real.


If you received an email from FB indicating this, they should give you a chance to prove that you are real. Fake accounts are reported all the time, and FB investigates these claims, they don't just shut down an account without checking first.

I would check the help pages to see what your options are if you did not receive an email. If you did receive one, there should be information contained in it to help you out.

Please be careful about scams. These days there are many corrupt and criminalized users send emails and SMS fro countries like UK and US offering you fake jobs just to get your money or by claiming you to give you Visa so that you send them money for processing your e-documents or paper documents and you do not hear from them after that. The greatest noticeable things that these people send mails from email portals like gmail,com, Yahoo.com,ymail.com not from well known company domains like Microsoft.com, Shell.com, nokia.com etc.
In your case the email address is Skoda.appointment@gmail.com. This is a fake email of a person who is disguised as a company "Skoda" This email should be like hr@Skoda.com. And Please remember that every company that will hire you. It will higher you after a process even over an internet and will not typically ask you for money.

How i check original or fake sites?


Phishing is when a bad person tries to trick you to logging into a fake website. The fake website will store your log in details so that the thief can log in to the real website and steal your credit card data or transfer money from your bank account,

The only sure way to ensure you are on a genuine website and not a phishing website is to carefully type the URL into the browser location bar yourself.

Otherwise, do not trust the URL even if you think it looks correct because phishers have various ways of making a fake URL look real (for instance using the number '1' in place of the letter 'l').

The best and only solution (especially if you are logging into a bank website or a shopping website that stores your credit card details or even social networking websites which are often attacked by phishers) is to ALWAYS type the URL manually into the browser location/address bar and NEVER log in or provide confidential information to a website directly after clicking a link in an email as this is how most phishers will get you.

Never give your log in details to out to anyone. Most legitimate websites will not ask for user name and password as they will have automated functions to send your password to you by email.
