Re: Yahoo Finance Scam

Good job checking with Yahoo. Yahoo is in the Search and Advertising business not the financing business.

In scams like this where email communication is used I see a common redflag is that they talk about personal issues they are having. They always mention a divorce they are going through, someone dying, financial issues, someone going to jail, etc..

In the real world if I have having financial issues and need to sell something I would never discuss that with a person I don't know.
