I received 3 suspicious emails today from" firstname.lastname@example.org" claiming to be from Yahoo.?
The messages said
"Your incoming mails is hanging as a result of limited bandwidth e-mail space,
To receive these emails you must have to update your email account,
Kindly click on the below link to complete the update on your,
Account in order to receive your pending mails and enjoy better ,

This sounds like a phishing email designed to collect your account information. If Yahoo sends you an email it will address you by your real name, never as Dear User, Dear Yahoo Account Holder, or Dear Yahoo Mail User. Yahoo sends emails from a @cc.yahoo-inc.com address only. Yahoo will never send you an email asking that you change, update, or verify your account information by clicking on a link in the email.
