I copied it and sent it to Yahoo.
seems I heard something about a identity scam doing that. If you click on that site it harvests personal info.
I did not do it.

You did right. The same thing is going around with AOL and Pay Pal. They look official but are scams. The one I got for AOL even had a Yahoo address. DUH how stupid do they think we can be?

There must be a whole rash of those; I just checked Clod's yahoo email and it had one, too. So I sent it with "full headers" to that address:
spoof@yohoo-inc.com.
I hope they catch and prosecute them if they can!!

Lenore, let us know what Yahoo tells you. Be nice if they can track this scam down.
