Title: Read This If You Use YahooMail!
Post by: MyWorld on Dec 02, 2009, 05:32 PM
If you are using Yahoo mail, you may probably receive this. Please do not honor it. It is an attempt to hack your email.

When you try to reply, this is the email you will see "servicemember11 @ yahoo.com" which indicates that the request is not from Yahoo!. Please don't be fooled!

Make your password highly confidential. Do not give it to anybody whatsoever!
