These scammers only want to get your personal information so that they can use it for fraudulent transactions and purposes. What to do when receiving this kind of scam mail? Ignore it!

Scammers out there, can please do a bit decent job and not scamming people for your own vested interest. . Here is a sample of yahoo scam mail I received again today. I also made a screen shot of it.
