          Thanks for your prompt replies,

          Spammers and fraudsters are getting very clever,but
          this latest message is a variation of similar messages
          about other sections of Yahoo closing down.

          I did suggest that the friend join this group,so
          hopefully has done so and seen your replies .

          Googling the subject line is also a good means to
          finding out about email hoaxes .
