Default A Scam/Phishing Email-Beware!

Here is another phishing email that I just received this morning. Here is what it says.

Dear User
Your Yahoo! account was recently signed in from an unknown Location, please Click Here for verification to avoid closure of your account.

Sincerely,

Yahoo!

I do use ATT/Yahoo, so that gave me cause for concern. However, I am not dumb enough to click on that please Click Here link.. Also, the sending email address on this email was not even from a Yahoo account, but an aol one... Just to make sure no one had accessed my account, I checked with AT&T and they said no one but me has accessed my account. But I changed my password just to be sure no one does.

As Dave said, NEVER click on a link like that, because you are inviting your PC to be infected. If you want to check something out, bring up your browser and type in the URL of the website that YOU want to view. Don't rely on a link like in that email I got.
