Beware of "Unusual Activity With Your Yahoo Account" Phishing Scam

Yahoo users who have received email messages like the one below, which claim that unusual activity has been detected on their accounts and should call 855-203-6080, should delete the email messages and not follow the instructions in them. This is because the email messages are phishing scams sent by cyber criminals and NOT by Yahoo, to trick Yahoo users into clicking on the link in the fake and malicious email message that goes to a phishing website that steals Yahoo email account username and password.
