To Whom It May Concern,

I have been receiving messages stating that there were for updates to my Yahoo 
E-mail account. The 701 First Ave. Sunnyvale address was used and David McDowell's name was also used.

Customer service was notified and I was told to disregard the messages.

I was asked for user name, password, country, current resident and sex.

The message stated that if I refuse the information that my current E-mail would be removed permanently.

I have tried to forward this message to you but was unable.

The e-mail was sent as Yahoo!@E-mail  Verification  7/6/2011
From:  "yahoo!services@" <groupcentredata@post.com

Please check and let others know!!!
