Phishing Email???

This email message is freaking me out!

I've been receiving this email for weeks now and it's already driving me nuts! I thought they will get tired of sending this since I never replied. I'm afraid they're just phishing for my yahoo info. Now I'm having second thoughts. I don't want my yahoo account to be deleted because I have almost all my online stuffs linked to it!

Did anyone of you receive this kind of email? Lainy said it's just some kind of a scam. Sigh. I'm not really sure if this email is legitimate. I need help. :(

The mail came from alerts@yahoo-inc.com

This is a scam. Do not reply to it at all. Especially the "unsubscribe" in some way this allows the sender information about you. I don't know how. My brother is a computer whiz and tells me all the time NEVER hit the unsubscribe button.
Don't even open it just delete it.

hint: if you're not being addressed with your name in the "dear" part, ignore it, it's a scam! thus, the dear part must be "dear ally" if it's for real!
