Receiving Email from a Yahoo account warning

You may receive an Email from a friend [or someone in the family] who has a Yahoo account. [The Email address sent from may not be a Yahoo account but the person has one.]

In the Email, which may not have a subject, it will give you most likely a one line paragraph and to click on a link.

It may be something like:

“You can’t miss it! http://blahblahblax.com/Johnny It’s my favorite one!”

The site above does not exist but is an example. Replace “Johnny” with the name of the person that sent it to you.

DON’T Click on the link in the Email.

Verify with the individual if they sent it. Do not reply to that Email directly.

I have received two of these the past couple of days. These are probably related to one of the two huge hacks on Yahoo over the past couple of years or so.
