Do not fall for this scare tactic hacking folks, it’s the oldest trick on the book, you will get scary email like below scaring you to click link and open attachment etc. Do not do it.
This kind of email usually goes into your spam folder, but hackers scammers are getting clever to bypass some Spam filter like this email below.
If you received similar email like below, just ignore it or delete it and continue. I do not believe yahoo email will ever contact you like below email. Normally you would get a popup directly on your yahoo email, not an actual email.
