      If you get it, check out the full headers (in the old yahoo, there's a little link somewhere either top or bottom that will say "full headers". The headers will show that there's a link to another email such as hotmail or live.com. Yahoo wouldn't send anything through or to hotmail or live.com...

      In the body it'll ask for your password & other PERSONAL INFORMATION. DO NOT SEND IT!!! EVER!!!

      Instead, open a window to the help page and report it to yahoo as a password phishing scam.

      DO NOT EVER give anyone your password EVER!
