    It should have referred to you by user name, not email address, if it were legit.

    It's faked. Not too hard to spoof senders.

    Put bluntly: never click a link in an email unless you explicitly requested the email (e.g. forum account activation). If the email is an automated upate, delete the email when you see it and go to the site via address (e.g. youtube.com) and log in directly.

    I have gotten a bunch of these, but simply marking as spam made them stop :)

    secondly, never use yahoo mail XD its got worthless anti spam.


    Gmail has never let a single spam mail into my inbox, nor has a proper email ended up in my spam.
