Dear Member,

Due to Recent Online Security Incidents and Upgrades on our Network,

Our Service Team will Terminate its Service to Your Account if Verification is not Done soon.

We recommend you verify your account a to avoid termination and closure of your account in the network brand

Please use the attached Yahoo file to update and verify your account.

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.
