Hoax/Fraud email: Yahoo sevice account Closure Hoax

Hi All,
I have received this email twice and one of my frends also got the same. The message is attached below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now frends please remember that these type of emails are all scams. Never reveal your identity to them. Some red flags to notice a scam as can be seen here:
1) See the Sender "Yahoo sevice account". Spelling Mistake!! Not even SERVICE was spelt properly
2) Another, notice that it was not send you personally. Rather it was send to undisclosed recipients.
3) Why would Yahoo ask password and id details from you. Dont they have these details.
4) A simple header search of email tells that it is not coming from Yahoo.com. Though it seems but it is very easy trick. I can send you email from NASA, Bill Gates, US Prez, Any Superstar official email id, Without even an effort of 2 minutes. Some times later on that ;)

So please be aware of these types of scam. They can also be categorised in Phishing attacks.
Take care.
And enjoy. Yahoo not closing your account!!!
