    Yahoo Mail Scam

    Sorry for pasting a scam, but here is an obvious one:

    This is a scam, right? Yahoo can tell what email account are active and which are dormant. No need for this, and they'd never ask for a password.

    From
    "yahoo-account-services-us[at]cc.yahoo-inc.com" <yahoo-account-services-us[at]cc.yahoo-inc.com>
    To:
    undisclosed-recipients

    Milkman, quick rule of thumb, anything, anything, anything, anything that asks for your password is a scam. Always. Everytime. Without exception.
