Phishing Email?

I get my AT&T online using YAHOO email. I received an email supposedly from Currently from AT&T | YAHOO a few minutes ago. I almost clicked on the link until I looked closer at the verbiage. Poor punctuation sent my spidey-senses tingling and me thinks this is SPAM. I can't attach a screen shot, but here is an exact copy of the verbiage:


Prior to Yahoo! Agreement

Customers will have to Verify their email address to confirm kindly click on the attachment re-login and verify now! we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

When I hover over the link, it directs to the following URL:

Has anyone else received such an email?

That is definitely a phishing email. I’ve not gotten that specific one but I have gotten something similar. There are many such emails circulating.

@sandblaster I've gotten a lot of phishing emails over the years, but this was the first for AT&T. I'm glad I took a closser look at it. Thanks for responding.
