Beware of "Yahoo Alert Account Termination or Deactivation" Phishing Scams

Yahoo users, be aware of email messages like the one below, which claim that a request to terminate your accounts is being processed. The email messages are phishing scams being sent by cybercriminals to steal Yahoo usernames and passwords, by tricking Yahoo users into visiting a phishing website that steals email account credentials.

The "Yahoo Alert Account Termination or Deactivation" Phishing Scam

From: Yahoo <FropTyic-ML@oneta..tediousblast.com>

Date: October 30, 2017 at 11:41:15 CDT

Subject: Your .account will be deactivated

Hello,

This is to inform you that your request on: 10/29/2017 2:17:12 p.m. to remove your account from Yahoo server has been approved and will initiate in one hour from the exact time you open this message.

Regards.

Please reply us.

Regards,

Yahoo

The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake or phishing Yahoo website, which will attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If Yahoo users attempt to sign into the phishing website with their Yahoo usernames and passwords, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts. The hijacked Yahoo accounts will then be used by cybercriminals fraudulently.

Remember, if you receive email messages like these, please go directly to your email account instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is something wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing in. And, if you were tricked by one of these phishing scams, please change your password immediately before your Yahoo account is hijacked.

    Hey, I'm an 'older' user of Yahoo but not quite as gullible as they wished. Here's the e-mail sender's addy...12011197@student.uts.edu.au.

    Of course this is BS, how could it not be? And here's their lame message:

    Dear XXX@yahoo.com,

    We are closing all old version of Your MailBox as from today SATURDAY JUNE (6/2/2018). Tap below to get a more organized mailbox to avoid being deactivated.

    Firstly, it would have read better with 'versions', and of course, sent on the actual day as I received it on June 1. Obviously, this was sent from another country. Perhaps the very one that trump and company plans to meet with on the 12th."

    Do Not Engage with these idiots. We're not as dumb as they think....Now ten years ago, I may have but that's the point - we live AND we learn. Best of luck out there.

    I have been scammed and clicked and filled in my email and passwords several times. I have updated by passwords after reading online and seeing it was a scam. What can I do now.
    Please advise.

      You have done everything that you need to do. But, if you want to add extra security to your account, you can enable 2-Step Verification on it.

      Two-step verification is another layer of security that uses your password plus a code to verify your identity when you sign in to your account on a new, unrecognized device for the first time.
