Just got a msg from Frontier communications telling me I have to update my Yahoo mail. Is this legit or scam?

Размещено

Frontier Communications<silverstreak@frontiernet.net> Just got this message that says I have to update my Yahoo mail to 7.1 There is a link there but I haven't clicked on it. Is this a legitimate message of a scam type. It doesn't give a time limit or date, but make it sound urgent. Haven't had any problems with mail up to now.

Frontier is my ISP - "Frontier Homepage Powered by Yahoo." It may be OK, but will all the spam/phish floating around, you never know. I did take a chance and clicked on the link. They wanted name, password, and other stuff. Last question was did I want to upgrade. I didn't give any infor except to say no to the upgrade question. So far all seems good. Thanks. Lynn

No matter what I try to contact Yahoo, it either takes me to Frontier home page or my yahoo mail. I tried the help button, but that's only for correcting news stories. Since the message seems to come from Frontier, I thought they could help.

Is Frontier your ISP ? If that is the case then contact them by phone or email.

How do you access your email normally? I would expect that if you access your email online that you would see a message about this.

We may have a problem. I was just going thru my spam folder to clean it out and noticed a total of 6 messages about the upgrade. Problem is they all have different addresses on them, but the message is identical. The message:

Yahoo! MAIL  

Dear Valid Customer, Your Mail Version is outdated, Failure to upgrade to the new Yahoo Mail 7.1 will now result in a permanent account closure. According to Provision 17.9 Terms and Conditions, Yahoo may at any time terminate your service from sending and receiving from this account.
