My previous Yahoomail ID-crrchar [at] was hacked recently & mails were sent to all my contacts that I am straned in Belfaet & asking them to send 960 pounds. Immediately I alerted my cotacts about this hoaks mail. However I am not able to open my id-crrchar [at] now. I have very important information & photographs of family events of last 3 years in my mails. I want Yahoo mail to restore my mail so that I can retrieve my old mails. I have changed my ID after this incident -ramanuja.char [at] I can be contacted on this new Id.


Prize awards from China Post P O Box 072-018 Shanghai. Says you have won 2,000,000 dollars US, you just need to send the $25 processing fee via credit card to them. Payable to PAC! The address to send to is: POSTBUS 363, 6800 AJ ARNHEM, NETHERLANDS. I wonder how many people have won this same 2 million dollars, or how many people have fallen for this mail fraud scam and sent $25 processing fee via credit card to them thinking that they have won. The first red flag is that it’s a Netherlands address, but really you have to be suspicious of anything coming out of China these days! You should never have to pay any money to claim winnings.

Apologies for having to reach out to you like this. I made a quick
trip to the United Kingdom(uk) and had my luggage stolen from me with
passport and credit card in it.

The embassy has cooperated by issuing a temporary passport, I just
have to pay for a ticket and settle the Hotel bills. With my wallet
stolen, I’ve made contact with my bank but the best they could do was
suggest to send me a new card in the mail which will take 3-5 working
days to arrive here .

I was hoping you could loan me some Money to sort things out and I
will definitely pay back once I get this over with.

Apparently Western Union or MoneyGram seem to be the fastest and
safest way to make the transfer so let me know if you want my details
(Full name and location) for the transfer.

I have tried to send emails from my btyahoo account to several departments of lewes district council at each one was marked as a failure because I am sending so called spam. I contacted to complain because these messages are and were important at the time I sent them from my btinternet account. The RE BL dispute number is ip” The Yahoo email is from a Richard at that address. Can you please remove from this spam list because as far as I am concerned this can be taken further.

When i buy online i dont expect my email to be used by yahoo and canadian pharmacy to contact everyone in my address book to try to sell them viagra. Yahoo is allowing canadian to steal our email and use it to sell our personal info to lots of peeps to contact us with scams. This is so wrong i dont need any freakin canadian drugs or anything else! I hate yahoo now! If yahoo cant control these thieves who can? for gods sakes make them stop tryin to scam us left and right with these pharm mails all day! I am urgin everyone to DROP Yahoo email asap. then they might get a frikin clue!


I am writing in regards to SBC Yahoo DSL. I talked to Mrs Valdez all I can say is Wow those people will tell a fib faster than anybody I have ever talked to. I ordered DSL 11/11/03 they told me that I would have to change my phone line in order to receive SBC DSL. I did they changed it out on the 18 everything was great at that time. I called on the 21st and told them my Yahoo Dsl was not working she said that it’s not even going to be up until Dec 2 I told them they promised to get it up by 21 She said “Oh well its not a guarantee time and they will get to it when they get.

I told them that I wanted to talk to a Manger she said that she was one and I don’t need to go any higher than her because they would tell me the same thing. “MAN THAT’S FRUSTRATING” I told Mrs Valdez that she couldn’t help me and I want to talk to her Boss Well next thing I knew there was a dial tone. That Yahoo SBC DSL company has the worst service I have ever seen if I can I’m going to try to go back to my old service, provided I can get my phone back. good luck for me.

For the last 3 months I have been trying to get the virus out of my yahoo email with no results. I can receive emails but can not send out any due to this virus in my message area and I’m very disappointed in Yahoo since I have had it since 2008 and never had this problem before. Please help me with this problem I’m just a little tried of this and I really don’t want to change my email address.


I got an email last week from the Windows Live, Yahoo & MSN mobile lottery group. They claimed I had won this huge lottery prize and the email looked very official. The rambled on and on and one about the process and everything then finally asked me to send them my ID as well as money to cover “insurance”. I couldn’t believe it, but I know that some people have been taken by this scam before. If you are interested a posted an excerpt of the mail below! This is clearly a fake lottery scam with legit names like Yahoo, Windows & MSN thrown in their to add credibility.

“The 2010 Yahoo MSN & Windows Live Mobile Lottery wishes to formally announce to you that your Mobile Number was selected as a winner of a lump sum pay out of One Million Great British Pounds (£1, 000, 000.00 GBP) in cash. Be informed that your prize is protected by a HARD COVER INSURANCE POLICY (HCIP), which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from your funds before remitting to you. Due to this fact, you are expected to make the payment. Kindly send us a scanned copy of your id card for proof of identity and for the Diplomat’s recognition.”

I hope this helps. They might change the numbers and words around to fake more people out, but the whole premise I think is the large winnings and hard cover insurance policy that you have to pay THEM for.


My friend sent me an email saying if I open an email that yahoo told someone to send will erase all the memory in my computer. I’m worried about more and more Yahoo mail virus that might shut down my computer.


A few days ago I opened up my Yahoo email account and began checking my mail. I opened an email that claimed to be from facebook, sure enough it was a virus that infected my computer. What pisses me off is how in the hell does this virus make it past yahoo mail and into my inbox! Don’t they have people checkin for this kind of stuff. It’s not difficult to figure out that a message is suspicious. If I noticed it, why didn’t they? Shouldn’t have opened it bottom line, but I wish Yahoo mail would do a better job protecting me from myself.


My yahoo mail got blocked from yesterday after noon, and I have no idea how to fix this! I can’t send or receive any messages and I’m thinking it might be a virus but not sure. When I reload sometimes it starts to work then crashes quickly, please help me!


I totally got sideswiped by this nasty Yahoo mail virus last week! It’s now 2010, but still virus like this running around??? I opened up what I thought was a picture of my girlfriend’s new iPhone she had just bought yesterday, instead it was some newsletter from Yahoo about iPhones. When I clicked on the picture to download what looked like a cheap bargain on the iPhone, instead this virus began downloading immediately! No joke, I had JUST downloaded my hard drive last week after a friend told me about some weird viruses going around, so I wasn’t really sweatin when I saw this. But now I gotta go wipe my hard drive and reload it all again…stink. Anybody on the internet can get targeted, even our precious Yahoo.


For the second time my email at yahoo has sent everyone in my address book a virus. I don’t know if someone is doing it or if it just goes around by itself, but for the second time in two months my email sent everyone I know an email with no subject line. When they open it, it just has a web address. As soon as you go to it you have a virus, and sometimes, people say that their virus scan won’t let them open it at all. I have changed my password, but it still happened again. I have also received the same kind of email from other people on yahoo. If you or anyone you know has a yahoo email watch out, but it’s all good after hearing the news this morning.

Apparently the hacker involved in planting multiple yahoo mail virus applications was infected with a bug that crashed his own system. Talk about irony! In addition to the virus problems, I am constantly getting yahoo chat requests from people I don’t know that are just spam. I mark them as spam, but it’s a different one each time, so it’s useless. I am getting so sick of all the stuff I am having to put up with just to keep this email. It’s just not worth it. I am changing my email to Google, no one I know has had that problem with them. And to anyone who works at yahoo, since you guys won’t listen to my complaints or try to fix your problems, this is my only option, to tell everyone I can think of to stop using your company.

Have feedback for Yahoo?
