NEVER click on a link in an email, navigate to the home page yourself. Also if you do think that you need to click on something, do yourself the favor and hover your mouse over the link for a few seconds, the lower left corner of your browser should show you the address where the link will take you. In this case it tried to take me to http:// www. dentonkukahiko.com/ /verify-account/ which as you can tell has NOTHING to do with Yahoo!. Another good hint about an emaisl validity is the icons in the email itself, a company such as Yahoo, will always have their logo in the email…this email didn’t have one.
Just do yourselves a big favor and always look twice at your email.s
