Hi Gregory,

Yahoo will most likely pass on your details anyway, check their terms and conditions when you sign up. I've found that Gmail is far better at stopping spam emails compared to Yahoo. Maybe it's worth a change as Gmail is more user friendly too.

Cheers

Hello, I have received an E-mail today for an order I did not place


99.99% chance it is a spam / phishing email.

Don't click on any links within the email!!!

This is a standard technique of online fraudsters:

They frighten you into thinking you have committed to spend some money, or have already paid

You then click a link in the email - WHICH LOOKS LIKE THE WEBSITE IT CLAIMS YOU HAVE ORDERED FROM!

This is actually a fake link and you then type in your login details, effectively giving them directly to the fraudsters

You then find that the actual ***** will follow very soon afterwards...

If the suspect email gives details of how you are supposed to have placed the order, then go direct to that online site and check from there (iTunes, eBay, Amazon, etc.)

Check websites like ask Leo dot com for more advice about staying safe online

    My email account keeps sending mail to my contacts. This is not okay with me. How do I solve this problem?


    Good Day Ganeatone!

    I'm sorry to hear that, It is clearly that your email account has been phished.

    " What is phishing?

    Fraudsters send fake emails or set up fake web sites that mimic Yahoo!'s sign-in pages (or the sign-in pages of other trusted companies, such as eBay or PayPal) to trick you into disclosing your user name and password. This practice is sometimes referred to as "phishing" - a play on the word "fishing" - because the fraudster is fishing for your private account information. Typically, fraudsters try to trick you into providing your user name and password so that they can gain access to an online account. Once they gain access, they can use your personal information to commit identity theft, charge your credit cards, empty your bank accounts, read your email, and lock you out of your online account by changing your password."

    If you think you entered your Yahoo! ID and password at a phishing site, then change your password immediately to prevent phisher from using your email account from sending spam mails.



    That will help.

    Hi, i am anable to open my yahoo id and the same user name and pasword i gave for my facebook account they are accesable. And while trying to open my yahoo id it asks for the security question but i forgot...


    Hello there John,

    Im sorry to hear that. However, the only way you be able to access your yahoo email again is to answer the security questions that you defined when you registered that email. If you're lucky to have defined a secondary email associated with that yahoo account, you can ask the system to send the password to that email.

    Why have I received an account for something I did not order from a firm I know nothing about?


    Somebody is trying to trick you into paying some money to them.

    Or, you are already an "identity-theft" victim, and that person is using your personal information (name, your bank, ***********'s maiden name, et cetera) to open accounts, and to order stuff online, and then to change the "ship-to" address from your "home" address to the "scammer's" address.

    Contact your bank, your credit-card company, and the local police's "Fraud Squad".
