    This morning I got a message:

    Dear Yahoo Member,

    We have temporarily suspended your email account prince_alfie@yahoo.com.

    This might be due to either of the following reasons:

    1. A recent change in your personal information (i.e. change of address).
    2. Submiting invalid information during the initial sign up process.
    3. An innability to accurately verify your selected option of subscription due to an internal error within our processors.
    See the details to reactivate your Yahoo account.

    Sincerely,The Yahoo Support Team

    It's Spam. I've had this kind of email before from them. When I got it I reported it. They confirmed it was spam, but never told me what (if anything) happened from it.
