Phishing Email

Just a heads-up.....I just received an email from what appears to be yahoo search marketing. It says that my account will expire and be deleted on March 18, 2009 and that I need to click this link to renew. Seemed like an obvious phishing scam, but I called Yahoo just to confirm. Glad my client is out of town or they may have tried to update!

MadeWillis, thanks for taking the time to share this info. We have unfortunately seen phishing attempts like this in the past. A recent post on our blog [ysmblog.com] provides more details and tips for identifying scams like this.
