emanmb Posted July 28, 2013 Share Posted July 28, 2013 Most of my spam reports go out from my free yahoo address. I send them all to SC, knujon, uce.gov, and phishing-reportATus-cert.gov in one FWD using my browser and not an email client. I use the alt-shift-F method to fwd spams in Yahoo. Today I browse back to my yahoo page and I'm signed out. I try to sign back in but can't. Go thru the "I can't remember my PW" routine and reset my PW. Once back into my yahoo acct, I see there are a bunch of mailer-daemon emails, one each from SC, uce.gov, and knujon, and another one from yahoo saying: Dear , At Yahoo!, your account safety is our top priority. Recently, we have detected some unusual activity on your account and as a result, we've temporarily locked it for your protection. You may unlock your account immediately by logging in on a PC. If you have additional questions, please visit us at http://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?y=P...care#voice-form to get the help you need. Sincerely, Your Yahoo! Customer Experience Team Now I guess that Yahoo can see that suspicious emails/spam are being fwd'ed from my acct, but isn't checking WHERE those emails are going, i.e. well know spam reporting agency addresses. Would this cause them to lock my account? Now I have started using HotSpot Shield which shows me as being in the US and I turn that on and off as needed. I can't send email from my Yahoo when using HSS so that I turn it off then for sure. Just thought I should mention that in case it's a red flag to Yahoo and might help solve this.
