Clicking the re-validate link will only redirect you to a Google Docs link that will display a small form asking you to input your email address, user name, password, and even opt for a 500 GB storage upgrade to your account.
Besides the poorly designed form, the fact that you can actually see the Google Docs link is an indication that the so-called hackers are pretty new at this and they’re targeting users not highly versed in Internet usage.
If you receive this type of email in your inbox, it’s safe to assume that you’re being conned into giving away your Yahoo account, by using one of the internet’s oldest scams.
What to Do: If you ever receive similar emails, we advise you to do a Google search with their content and see if someone has reported the message as being a hoax.
