    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.

    You can get the Yahoo Account team to check if the message you received was actually sent by Yahoo by following the steps below.

    Start here - https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?page=home&...

    Click on "Yahoo Mail" and select the version you need help with.

    Under Topic select "Abuse and spam"

    Under Subtopic select "Email asking for account information"

    Under Recommended Options you will find more information.

    Is it addressed to you by name or does it have some generic greeting like "Dear member" or "Dear user"? Generic greetings are almost always spam or phishing.
