Any organization that asks you to submit this sort of information by email is likely to be an attempted fraud.
The grammatical errors and spelling mistakes tends to confirm this is not a genuine email from Yahoo
It is sensible for you to contact Yahoo to double check, but please do not use any links provided in the "suspect" email.
Open your browser and type in the URL that you usually use.
Well done for not being decieved by this attempt...many folks are decieved, and the consequences can be "very unfortunate and unpleasant"

Note please :
The email itself is not FROM yahoo.
Legitimate mail from an e-commerce vendor will be personal and NAME---YOU as a customer
They again, will specifically name YOU.
These guys do not even know you are a customer.......
...Please confirm that you have an account....
There are usually ERRORS in grammer or spelling or formatting
...and submit yourinformation for manual verification by one of our customer care representatives.
...we will manually verify yourYahoo account and, thereby, prevent it from being deleted, We are sorry forany inconvenience this might cause.
They will lie to you
They can absolutely reactivate any account they want after a few days......I've done it.
Account owner "who" refuses to update his/her account after two weeksofreceiving this warning will lose his or her account permanently.
This is an attempt at copying the bottom of the yahoo login webpage
This is would the correct copy would look like:

you can mark it, then delete it.
Thanks for that. Do I delete the email or mark it as spam?
No, that will add the e-mail address of the sender (which remember is NOT yahoo,) to the spam list. Depending on where your e-mail is being hosted (the part after the @ symbol,) will depend on where the mail ends-up, or if it is seen by you at all. Normally any future e-mails from that sender would just automatically be directed to a Spam-folder, where you would still be abe to see it, they will just no longer appear in your "inbox".
If marked as spam would that stop genuine emails from yahoo coming in?
