Hi, please let us know how we can improve further.

Possible fake email from Yahoo - Account closure

I received an email allegedly from Yahoo informing me that my account will be closed unless I upgrade to the latest version. I made screen shots of the emails and would like to send it to you for verification. Or better yet forward the emails to you, if I just know where to forward it to.

    I received a similar mail awhile ago:

    me too, I also received email saying these..
    “Dear User,

    Our record shows that your Yahoo Mailbox is Out-dated which has
    caused some incoming mails to be placed on pending.

    Kindly follow attachment below to Upgrade newest Yahoo Mail 7.1.6

    in order to be able to receive new mails.

    Best Regards,

    The email sent from named: Yahoo but when you open the detail of the email shows this: romiejayoalin@yahoo.com

    And the Yahoo logo inside the message looks not real.
