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 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 anything wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing into your account. And, if you were tricked by one of these phishing scams, please change your password immediately before your Yahoo account is hijacked.

    SUPERSAVINGZ IS A SCAM, whatever they are offering don’t buy it, they are a fraud, even with the free stuff they offer. I ordered an item on March 16th, I pay for the shipping and handling, it says that I was going to receive it in 4 to 6 weeks, today, three and a half month later NOTHING, I HAD RECEIVE NOTHING.

    I have called them at least once every week and every time they give me the same story that the main office will contact me between 24 to 48 hours and nothing, and today when I asked to have my money back they said that because more than 90 days had passed they have to talk to the main office to see if they can return my money.

    I am certain that this is just the way this fraud works; they keep you talking until the final time of 90 days comes for them not to pay you. I am doing this for people not to fall with these thieves. I am going to report them in every place that I can imagine
