Yahoo users who have received "Your Yahoo E-Mail Will Expire Soon" email messages like the one below, which claim that their accounts will have expired and they need to renew, or else their accounts will be closed, should delete the same messages and not follow the instructions in them.

Dear User,

Action is required on your account because your email is about to expire.

To avoid account termination, you are required to update your account with us now.

Thank You.

Account Services Department.

Yahoo users who have already been tricked by the same phishing email messages are asked to change their passwords before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently by cyber criminals. Yahoo users whose accounts have already been hijacked can go to https://login.yahoo.com/ and click the "Trouble Signing in?" link to recover their accounts.

To protect against phishing scams, Yahoo users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should instead go directly to https://login.yahoo.com/ or use the Yahoo mobile app. Once users have signed into their accounts they will be notified of changes, requests, or updates if there is any.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.
