If you have
used Yahoo to purchase anything, for their e-mail forwarding service, or any
other service where you might have given them your address, phone number,
and e-mail address, then act soon or you will get spammed at all three
addresses starting in JUNE!!!
If you have a username and password for anything at Yahoo.com, then you
should go to http://my.yahoo.com and click on “account info” at the top of
the page (after logging in). You will see an item called “Edit my marketing
preferences”. Yahoo has just re-set these so that everyone will start
getting bombarded with SPAM in JUNE — including your home address if they
have that, and even via the telephone!!! However, you have until June to go
to their web page and turn these options OFF.
I feel, as a matter of principle, that such settings should always be
set to “no” unless people voluntarily “opt-in” and turn the features on. If
you feel the same way, and have a Yahoo account, please write to Yahoo to
express your feelings. You can reach Yahoo at:
