Yahoo Mail “Upgrade” scam

Found this in my mailbox just today, although it arrived last week.

Scam

The “Upgrade Now” link leads to “https://ravenbiotech.com/oluwamide/yahoo/image.htm,” but the link is now dead. Raven Biotech is a legitimate firm, but some scumbag somewhere managed to get onto their server and add the malicious page – probably designed as a phishing scam or drive-by malware downloading.

Never click on links in emails. Notice where the link goes by hovering your mouse over the link, and then visit the page directly.

If you’re not sure an email is valid, contact the company by phone.

Never provide sensitive banking, financial, or password information on the internet if you don’t know who you are dealing with. Be careful out there.
