You will only receive emails to your Disposable Email Address: strippergurl2000-[keyword]@yahoo.co.uk.

      Please make sure you provide the right Disposable Email Addresses so you continue to receive emails.

      To confirm your existing Disposable Email Address:
      1. In Yahoo! Mail, go to “Options,” then “More Options”
      2. From the menu on the left, click “Disposable Email Address.” If you don't see this option, click “Spam” and “Set up a disposable address”.

      Thank you,

      This is a scam. It came from yahoo-INC.com. Which is nothing to do with Yahoo.com. People try to make them look almost like a full on real email to catch people off guard, so be watchful.

      You're welcome. We can never be too careful. I blocked the yahoo-inc but have since snouted around to find similar peeps' troubles in Yahoo Answers.

      I keep getting emails like these.. this is the 3rd 1 in less than an hr. I don't have "extra" email accounts? - Yahoo! Answers

      Guess it's pretty widespread, then. :)
