    A lot of this happening at the moment. Best advice is to look at the address it's coming from. And always, if in doubt..delete.

    This is nothing more than an outright scam to the third degree. Scam messages that request you to "upgrade" your email account must be ignored and deleted immediately. Never click on the links or attachments and give your personal information to the scammers or you can risk your account being hacked. Remember Yahoo would never send you unsolicited emails asking for your personal information.

    That is a phishing scam. Ignore and delete it. This is how to identify legitimate Yahoo websites, requests, and communications: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2091.html

    If you look close at the email header or hover over any links, you will see that the email is not from Yahoo or Verizon and the links do not go to Verizon or Yahoo. The email is a total scam.

    Those types of messages are phishing scams. Note that they do not/cannot identify you by name.

    It's a phishing scam. The email did not come from Yahoo or Verizon. It probably came from Verzion.
