There’s a new phishing scam making the rounds, and it involves Google. Apparently, the scammers use Google to re-route an e-mail, and dupes users into creating Yahoo! e-mail accounts for the spammers to use themselves. The lesson here is that if you’re going to create an e-mail account through Yahoo!, Hotmail, or other free(ish) services, go to the site yourself; don’t rely on clicking through e-mails to get the account created. You could be creating a spammer’s account by accident.
