Email from BT Yahoo Acct Services to "Verify this email address"

Hello.

 

I do not go clicking on expecting emails requesting that I verify account info, passwords, etc. Is this email from BT Yahoo legitimate or is it a phisming scam? I have had this particular acct for many months, and have not inititiated verification of an existing email account. So what's up?

 

Marilyn

Re: Email from BT Yahoo Acct Services to "Verify this email address"

This is weird. I just clicked on the link after Googling the url and discovering that it is authentic, and the webpage said:

 

Oops! Looks like you're logged into another account.

To complete the verification, you need to sign out from your current account my-user-acct-name@btinternet.com and sign into m.m.barrett@btinternet.com. Click on the “Sign Out & Continue” button to continue with the verification process.

 

I didn't do it. I hit Cancel. So something is really mucked up.
