I am cutting a pasting the email I just received. Their is so many scams out there trying to get your banking information. My online page with YPN says my SS# has been verified and my payment method shows direct deposit. Listed below is the email. Comments please. I am presently ignoring it.

<paraphrase>says to login and change bank account information as it is no longer valid and payment will presently be issued by cheque until banking info is entered again

I get something like this once a week. I just delete and if possible report the site.

Send YAHOO an email directly from your login page. They will let you know if there is a problem.

Don't ever respond to an email link!

Login directly to you source and check there, if there is something to do they will leave you a message in the secure area.

Most reputable companies would never ask you for sensitive information via email. It's just not appropriate.
