Re: Urgent spam

M,  This "notification" is 100% fake.  Your account will not be closed. That email is not from Yahoo.  This email has been the most successful scam in history.  Everyone knows that they did not request a cancellation.  but they can't be sure that some mixup might cause them to lose their account.  so they click on the link.  that's when the trouble begins.

I got the same message. I’ve had this account for years and never got this message before.
