    I would check with Yahoo. Sounds fishy to me.

    I don't think the money is for real. My guess is it's a way to get you to "sign up" for email newsletters.

    it may be for real but they want to get all your information and usually they want you to buy something, I haven't found any reason to trust those yet

    I'm sure it's fake.
