Beware of Yahoo Search Marketing Phishing Email Scams

Jun 17, 2008 - 7:23 am 0 by

A couple weeks ago we reported that more Google AdWords phishing email scams were being sent out. While those emails continue to be sent out, the same scam artists are sending out similar emails branded for Yahoo Search Marketing. Here is a picture of the email I personally received yesterday, that I know many others are also receiving:

Yahoo Search Marketing Scams

Yes, it looks extremely similar to the AdWords phishing scams, in fact, it appears to be from the same scammer. The URL that the click here goes to is:

http://yms-source.com/yahoo.marketing.solutions/adui/loadSignin.htm

Yes, the same ysm-source.com domain. So be careful and don't ever reply to or take action on these types of emails.
