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says to login and change bank account information as it is no longer valid and payment will presently be issued by cheque until banking info is entered again

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.
