    It is a Scam. Never give out your personal info to any of these places. It is a phishing scam to steal your identity. Yahoo will never ask you for your personal info. Hope this helps!!!

    You can report this fill out the phishing form below.

    Forward the email to.

    This is called phishing. Yahoo wouldn't do that. If some jerk sends out an email bomb and hits 1000 people and only 10 reply, he might gain access to one persons account and/or other stats. Next thing you know...Identity theft. It take months of not opening your email for it to be deleted by yahoo. All you have to do is log in once in a while. So, thats a scam.

    Shyt, I got one guy that keeps wanting to transfer 100,000.00 U.S dollars in my bank account!!! Scams all over hun, beware!

    Yahoo won't let you know if the email is being removed, because it's only removed if 1) a violation or 2) expired. Either way, you wouldn't receive the email.

    Delete the email immediately.

    This is a known phishing scam attempting to get you to give them all your personal info. It's not from Yahoo, just delete it and ignore it. Good luck and be careful.

    SCAM! No reputable company would ever ask you to send that kind of information over the internet. They're phishing.

    Here we go again..scammers and don't reply with any personal information. Any Yahoo! correspondence is done with the logo in purple.

    Big time SCAM. Yahoo will NEVER be asked password, much less birthdate.
