Yahoo Mail is facing phishing attack!

I got a mail from Yahoo day before yesterday and I was almost going to click on the link provided in the mail.

Its so easy to confuse the time scarce junta on internet. Especially, when Yahoo has been closing so many services; Briefcase, Geo-cities, etc that it is almost incidental that Yahoo might be closing something else and hence this email.

I thought of letting know some of my friends via this post on this issue.

How to tackle this - 

Just notice the email id from where the mail was sent.

The fake mail (above) was sent from "" email id!!! - while the genuine one - sample the Geocities closure email below - was sent from Yahoo-inc email id.

Remember to check the email id before clicking any such mail else your account will get compromised!
