E-Mail Scam - Yahoo Users Beware

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I recently have received 2 e-mails from equestrian friends who I know and respect. The e-mails were strange and prompted me to contact one of them who actually has a website. The message mentions the sender is in Spain and has lost their purse, wallet, passports, money, and that they are confused and need help. The person I contacted was unaware this had gone out, and was not in Spain. She mentioned she recently got an e-mail from Yahoo asking her to change some information. It appears that her account was hijacked and perhaps her address book as well. If you are a Yahoo user (not to say it cannot happen to others) be careful!
