The issue in GetHuman918765's own words
I was going through my spam to delete nuisance emails. ... An email dated ** Jul **** at **:** was very abusive and demanded money. The sender was said to be Randy Mckenzie, ******@***.com*. I opened it yesterday and it stated a deadline of * days for the money.*It stated my email address, followed a few words later by a password (this may have been an old password, I cannot remember).* I am hoping that someone in your organisation, or someone specialising in such emails, might recognise the above details, if this has been happening to other yahoo users.*I can send you a copy of the offending email if you send me the address to send it to. Again, someone may recognise features in the wording or about the wording.* Yours,
Please note that this is annoying.
I want to alert Yahoo of the details so that they can see if this is a recurrent problem. If you could inform me of the quickest procedure for locating the origin of the offending email this could help myself and others. Also, how are such emails best defined? e.g. Internet*Cyber '-Attempted Fraud' or '-Fraud'? A specialist may then be able to write an anti- spam. People do not want such emails, it also gives technology a bad name, and puts people off technology.
** years or more.
I Googled Cyber Bullying but could find no cases which involved money. I further Googled 'Cyber Harassment' and 'Cyber Nuisance' and found the same limitation as above Re. money.
I have an issue with Yahoo too
