Usually you will receive communications from these yahoo spammers and hackers addressed to your spam section though some of them go to your mail box.

When you open your email in your yahoo mail box immediately investigate it. Look for the sender and the addressee. The heading of the email will tell you who is the sender with the word “from” and the addressee with the word “to”.

Yahoo spammers and hackers are using “Yahoo! Member Services “. Beware with these senders. They are not employees of yahoo. The yahoo member services employees will never send you email without using your yahoo email valid address.

Their email will look like this:

From: Yahoo! Member Services

To: (The sender did not write my yahoo email valid address here)
