. . . and just looking at it, I see the 'E' of expire and the 'S' in support are both capitalized. The mark of a scam for sure. Organizations the caliber of Yahoo! would let something like that slip by them prior to sending out an email.


Slow down a second...if you've read many Yahoo articles, I wouldn't put it past Yahoo to let spelling errors thru. They often use the comments section to edit articles.

But this is still definetly a phishing email.

Standard Phishing technique.

Companies NEVER send out blanket statement emails telling you that you need to "verify your account details", "update your password", etc.

As much as we tell people not to fall for these scams, as much as you see these issues reported on the news, PEOPLE STILL FALL FOR THEM.

On the surface it looked "legit" but I always scrutinize the email address from which it was sent, such is the case for this...
NO. Nothing looks legit. Yahoo or any legit company will never ever send such a message. Front, back, top, bottom everything looks like fraud.

Delete and move on. No need to open or investigate. Delete, delete, delete.
