Beware of "Yahoo You Have Been Hacked" Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims the recipients' Yahoo accounts have been hacked and they should call a particular telephone number, is a fake and scam. The email message was NOT sent by Yahoo and is a phishing scam created by cybercriminals to steal Yahoo usernames and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not click on the links or follow the instructions in it. Yahoo email users who have received similar emails and who want to know if there is something actually wrong with their accounts should go directly to yahoo.com and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong, or if there is something that needs to be done on their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.

Please continue reading below.

It is recommended that Yahoo users never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should go directly to www.yahoo.com.

    Not sure if Yahoo has been hacked again with a survey pop up that jumps in to a dozen links without consent.. 2/8/2018. Will never come back to Yahoo again after reading these updates and experiencing either a hacked website or a retards idea of forcing a survey on unsuspecting clickers.
