Yahoo promotes spamming

Yahoo has blocked my account preventing me from reporting spam, however, at the same time Yahoo is promoting spam by blocking subscribers from reporting abuses. I have been having problems for about 3 months with Yahoo reporting spams. This is the *** response I receive every time. Now I can see why Yahoo promotes spamming. Due to you idiots blocking my email account for reporting spam I will be reporting this incident to all of the consumer complaint sites and I will be reporting YAHOO to the legal authorities and other agencies. I am sick and tired of this ***. Your message was not sent Your account has been temporarily blocked from sending messages. This block can be caused by sending messages that trigger our spam filters, or by having too many recipients in one email. We encourage you to review the contents and recipient list of your message, and try sending it at after an hour or two. Doing so will usually resolve the matter.If you are still unable to send messages after a 24-hour period, please read our FAQ for more information and to request Customer Care assistance. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks, The Yahoo! Mail Team

Your spam filter is bogus. all it does, is notify your advertisers that they owe for the spam dumped in our email.

How do I know? you can actually block if we pay a yearly fee.

what you are doing is extortion. May God curse you and your families for your dishonesty.

Hotjobs gives away your info

I am so angry right now. I am desperately searching for work and I recently added my resume to HotJobs a product of Yahoo! and ever since I uploaded there have been emails and calls galore! You wouldn't believe the nonsense I have coming in at all hours. Money Laundering,"legit"work at home and even ones with my ADDRESS from some idiotic email at a GMAIL account. Are you kidding me? When you upload a resume to a site there is a privacy terms and conditions right? How the *** does JOEBLOW@***.com have my *** home address. I am seriously freaked out right now.

It looks like that the ISP`s , (Internetserviceproviders)block ports which Yahoo uses to send and receice (POP3,SMTP), I wonder why Yahoo dont do anything against it or at least give advices how to handle the situation, I need my yahoo for business too and I run Yahoo through Outlook, in the hotel I can send but not receive, at work I can receive but not send. It *** me off

Yahoo! will disable your account if it is compromised.

After sending customer care an email about not being able to access your account Yahoo! will send you an email showing an excerpt of the Terms of Service where it states that Yahoo! can disable your account for any reason. This is because they don't want to have to admit that they allowed your account to be compromised and instead of spending the time to try to fix my hacked account, they disable your account all together. After years of playing fantasy sports and paying for stat tracker, my account is disabled for no apparently logical reason. Sign in seal? New secret questions? What is the real reason behind these new security features. Why would I need sign in seal if my browser already has phishing protection? I'll tell you why. It's because Yahoo! can't afford to keep up with today's security demands and try to peddle off some new so-called "cutting-edge" security feature like sign-in seal. OMG! sign-in seal! Gimme a break! It's just a bunch of pointless software that Yahoo! promotes to give one the impression that they are "on top of things". Yea right. If your account is compromised, Yahoo! can simply state, "Oh, you failed to do this or that. So now your account is disabled." Or simply send you a copy of the Terms of Service that you've already read and understood. Think about.. it makes sense from a business point of view... if a hacker stole my yahoo account and wanted to try to exploit my email somehow, they could most certainly try and may succeed causing problems to a whole range of peoples. But because it is stated in their yahoo's terms of service that they my disable your account for any reason, they will probably do that instead of having to deal with customer complaints about their emails being used by a hackers.

Yahoo cannot provide me with consistent e-mail service as a premium user.

I am unable to receive and send all of my e-mails via Yahoo and I pay for the service. This has been a problem for well over 6 months. Neither Send and Receive features function properly. Yahoo has been unable to resolve the issue and basically advised that I am not being truthful. You cannot talk to anyone on the phone. I have engaged agents ('Nicole' was the latest) via a specific Yahoo Chat account, but to no avail. I have no choice but to cancel my subscription -- this will take months since my business cards and all of my business contacts have this e-mail.

YAHOO SEARCH MARKETING SUCKS...........

When joined the YAHOO SEARCH MARKETING PROGRAM I the keywords I had selected should not cost me more than$0.20 per clicks and now it has been five days and I have been charged $1.00 each day and all I am getting is 2 clicks a day as per my budget of $1.00 every day. YAHOO IS A BIG SUCKER at first they try to bring customer in their program by offering incentive of $25 and when you do not want to keep the account open you are told that the $30 deposit is non-refundable. so here I am out of my hard earned $30 and without much help to my business. YAHOO SEARCH MARKETING SUCKS......

Yahoo delete my account, won't say why.

I had a Yahoo account for over 10 years and it was deleted without exlantation. I never had any complaints and used many of there services. They never said what it was I did wrong. I contacted them 4 times. They never gave me an answer...just a form letter stating I had 'violated their TOS" When I questioned specifically what "TOS" I had violated, they responded with the same form letter. And the third letter also stated they would never respond to my query again. 10+ years and they couldn't even be bothered to let me know what I might have done to incur their wrath.

yes I agree with you even my account has been deleted from YAHOO answers community they do not like the truth...

#55581

I know what you mean.. Most companies terminate hundreds of accounts per day, and don't require an actual reason why they terminated your account.

This is the same for many companies, as it protects them.

Not your fault.. who knows what happened there, could be a false accusation!

Yahoo Personals misrepresentation

I received an e-mail from Yahoo Personals to try a 7 day "free pass" with Yahoo Personals. I understood that if I did not cancel before the 7 days, my credit card would be charged. I cancelled after 4 days and on the 5th day, the charge went though (the monthly charge) and I was stuck for a whole month that is not in use. When I called, it was pretty much "too bad" and that the free pass was for "new" members only even though it had been over a year since I had subscribed to them. Bad misrepresentation by them and will NEVER use them again

Yahoo Personals - unauthorized recurring charges!

I canceled my Yahoo Personals account some time ago. Turns out, they’ve been charging me ever since, at a rate of $49.95 per quarter. The last time they sent me an email stating that they were about to renew my subscription, I went in and canceled. I have not received any further such emails from them, yet they have charged me quarterly. That’s $200 a year for something I have not used and have no interest in. It may sound flaky that I did not notice these charges sooner, but I was on “paperless” statements from my credit card, plus I’ve been battling Breast Cancer for several months. Needless to say, I have not been interested in dating since I was diagnosed, and being unable to work, I cannot afford these charges! When I contacted Yahoo to try to get a refund, I got nowhere with a representative who repeated the same “I’m so sorry/I understand why you’re upset” script over and over again.

I signed up for Yahoo personals for one '3 month period' years ago, I caneled which took a huge effort, and 3 years later they are still charging me. They have gotton to my bank account information, my visa, and now my AMX.

They are a big internet company and have affiliates with other big internet companies, they are trading information. Fraud.

Yahoo deleted my accounts without giving any reason.

I had an account with Yahoo for 7 years. I was up to level 7 on the Answers forum, with a 25% best answer rate. Out of the blue, no violation notice, no nothing, they not only deleted my Answers account, they deleted my e-mail address and all my personal e-mails contained within, as well. I contacted them three times. They never gave me an answer...just a form letter stating I had 'violated their TOS" When I questioned specifically what "TOS" I had violated, they responded with the same form letter. And the third letter also stated they would never respond to my query again. Here I sit, two months later, wondering what I did to deserve losing my 7 year old account, all my personal information, and a level 7 Answers status. I reported them to the BBB, but so far, no word on what they found out, if anything. IMHO - Yahoo is a joke when it comes to customer service. As in, they have none. Haha. I guess the jokes on us.

I recently discovered Yahoo Answers I have been using it for about 2 weeks now. It seemed like a great way to help people out. The concept and the true idea are very, very far off from each other. So far in 2 weeks, I have received 10 Violations Notices. Which sounds...

You have to remember that a lot of the answers on Yahoo!Answers come from teenagers or college students...much of the advice is hearsay unless a nurse, doctor, or trained professional happens to stumble on the question.

I often find Yahoo!Answers useless.

The tanstore.com does not deliver!

I ordered tanning bed lotion at a considerable discount from the thetanstore@***.com. They say upfront that it could take up to 2 weeks for delivery, with a delivery confirmation number within that periond of time. I ordered on 4/18 and they charged my credit card. Today 4/29 I sent an email stating I would like the status and/or my confirmation number. My reply was the owner was really sick and expected to be in the hospital for several days and they would try and fill orders during this time and please be patient. This is a ripoff organization!

I also placed an order with them on 5/31, sent emails for two weeks asking about order and got no response. I have placed a dispute with the credit card company for the charge. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH TANSTORE!
