Never “Verify Your Email.”

No email service will send you a message asking you to provide your address and password, or other financial data. They just won’t.

This email is bogus. Note the red circle next to the “click to validate” link – that’s a warning from WOT (Web of Trust) that indicates the website is not to be trusted.

If you’re foolish enough to click the link, which goes to http://bookinghh.myfreesitehost.com/smluptt/wadohjom.htm (NOT a Yahoo website), you’ll get this:

If you fill out this information, scammers now have access to your email account, and they will use it to steal information or send out criminal spam.

Never do this. Be careful out there.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
