    I received an email two days ago asking for my information because there's going to be an upgrade but it doesn't seem right.

    They said if I fail to send my info I would be removed from yahoo mail. Can you please verify if it's true or a scam. Thank You

      It is a scam. Yahoo will never send you such message. No email provider needs your information in order to upgrade their servers.

      If you have received a suspicious email message, the best thing to do is go directly to your account and and sign into it.

      If there is a problem or notice, it will be shown to you.

      Remember, never respond to an email with your personal or financial information. And, never click on a link to sign into your account.
