My ads have stopped on Yahoo!

I just received the following email alleging to be from Yahoo!, claiming my ads have stopped displaying and asking me to log in to check it out.

Funny, cos I don’t and have never advertised on Yahoo!

I regularly receive similar spam emails for eBay and PayPal, but this is the first Yahoo! email of this nature. If anyone else has received one, don’t click on the links, they’re not exactly genuine.

On a side note, is this my first Internet marketing related post for months? I think it might be. I’m in danger of getting all relevant on this blog.

Normal service will be resumed soon enough… where did I put that voice recorder software for my phone?
