Yahoo Answers is shutting down on May 4th, 2021 (Eastern Time) and beginning April 20th, 2021 (Eastern Time) the Yahoo Answers website will be in read-only mode. There will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services, or your Yahoo account. You can find more information about the Yahoo Answers shutdown and how to download your data on this help page.

Please check if this really from Yahoo?

I recieved mail from Yahoo "YOU WON $500! Yahoo! Mail congratulates you!, please get your money" . The message is that "Yahoo! Mail gives members random cash prizes. Today, your account has been selected as the one of 12 top winners accounts who will get cash prizes from us. Please click the link below and follow instructions on our web site. Your money will be paid directly to your e-gold, PayPal, StormPay or MoneyBookers account".

I tried to go in but I am required to pay USD 8.75 for the premium member of "Yahoo! Games" to the account 3901625 (3516968 Yahoo! Games). I need Yahoo staff to verify and confirm if this the real activity from real Yahoo and this is real e-gold account number of Yahoo for that activity. Please kindly help me to check.

Sorry that I'm unable to attach the said mail, I tried so many times but it fails to send out .

Thank you very much,

    As soon as they asked you to pay money to them before they gave the "free" money to you, you should have known it was a scam. That's a classic scam tactic.

    Good on you for checking before giving them your money....
