    So far as anyone can tell, Yahoo has stopped even pretending to accept complaints about spam and other email abuse committed using Yahoo mail accounts. Yahoo USED TO have a page where you could report spam and other abuse coming from Yahoo mail accounts. The page was difficult to use (deliberately so, I believe) but if you were using good email software and you were familiar with the technical parts of email, you COULD send an abuse report to Yahoo. The abuse reporting page that Yahoo USED TO have is no longer available; Yahoo's (nearly useless) so-called "Help" pages have nothing at all about reporting abuse; and the few answers here that pointed to ways to report abuse are no longer correct. Many people used to question whether or not Yahoo actually did anything about abuse reports, but now the answer is clearly that Yahoo is no longer willing to even receive reports of abuse by its customers.

    Try this link

    http://security.yahoo.com/article.html?aid=2006102...

    or use address

    phishing@cc.yahoo-inc.com

    For the report to be possibly useful it should include complete headers. In Yahoo webmail look below the message and to the right for a link Full Headers. It may be a good idea to open Notepad for copying and pasting notes. Yahoo makes things extra difficult by trimming out headers from forwardings, so you would need to first select the headers and copy them before forwarding, so you can paste them back into the message before sending. You may want to hold the copy in Notepad for a while, because you have another task.

    What is the spammer's webpage? The displayed text on the link can be different from the actual link. Put your cursor over the link in the message. Right click. Select Copy shortcut (Internet Explorer) or Copy link location (Firefox), and paste to your notes.
