email account - is this real?

We've gotten about 3 emails similar to this one from different YaHoo Mail personnel with different details in their identifying information. The details don't look legitimate, but they talk about cutting off our earlier emails since ATT.net has merged email services with yahoo and yahoo is taking over. Is this real and if so what , what do we need to do? For now I'm treating it as spam or phising. Thankyou

Thank you for bringing this forward, @bseven9155

 

After reviewing the address the “Re-Validate” link sends you to, it is most likely a phishing email. 

 

We offer some great online resources to help you spot Fake Emails and some additional steps you can take to protect yourself.

 

In the second article, there is some information on how to report the phishing scam to AT&T Internet Security and the Anti-Phishing Working Group.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions we can assist with.

Forget the “most likely”. It’s a phishing scam for sure.

I got an e-mail from [email scrubbed],  The e-mail I copied and pasted it to this.  I don't know if it is fake or not.  So I refuse to answer it

@chabro27    It's a PHISHING scam designed to capture your email login info.  Delete it and move on with the understanding that you'll likely get more in the coming days as these guys don't give up so easily.

Moving this old thread to the Email forum and closing it.
