    Why is Yahoo requiring a verification of password? It is in very poor English and not from an email address that I recognize but it says from yahoo.

    Hi dancer,

    That is a phishing scam designed to steal your password and hack your account so it can be used to send spam.

    Never reply to emails or click the links in them that ask you to verify your password or confirm personal information.

    Mark the email as phishing / spam and delete the email.
