    I didn't open these emails, but I had like 10 emails in my old email address inbox saying they were from Yahoo, and the subject was "Your bank card linking to... and then my email address".


    I don't get it. Has anyone else received these obviously bogus emails?

    Ah yes. It just kinda bothered me, because there were quite a number of them in there. One for every day this past week, and then 3 for today.

    I think I had gotten a similar one the other day. They usually go into my Bulk Folder. But yes, very obvious.

    agreed. All mine were in my bulk folder as well which I guess should obviously scream fake, cause I think if it was really important it would go into my main inbox. Plus, I've never ordered anything from yahoo, so i know it couldn't be a bank card.

    I just went to my Bulk Folder again. I already have 34 new e-mails in it.

    2 of them say "Your Bank Card Linking To....."
    One from Yahoo! and one from Yahloo!

    So much junk, I just empty the whole thing
