    Scam!!!! I think by now Yahoo should post alerts. Don't do what they ask, just delete it.

    This is NOT from yahoo. Contact abuse@yahoo.com, The best way is to view the full header of the email and copy/paste it to an email to abuse, then attach the email. Yahoo take this very seriously, and will stop it quickly. ALL these emails form wherever are scams, I know of someone who paid the sender 14,000.00 GBP as transfer and other fees, then found their bank account had been robbed. by this time the sender was no longer around! So report them quickly, and prevent the less informed from being conned.

    totally fishing email trying to get you to put your credit card info and other personal info into some site. yahoo contacts people by snail mail for such things.

    Just delete it, it is a SCAM, do not reply on it, or send any information about yourself, like bank accounts...

    99.99% probility that it is a scam.

    Are they asking for your bank account details?

    Are they asking you to pay an up front fee before they will send you the money?

    It is a scam.

    Forward that email to mailto:abuse@yahoo.com

    That is called "phishing".
