    I love those emails. I repond to them often but I do not submit the required information to keep my account active.

    Once they read this, they salivate:

    Subject: My Yahoo Account

    Please do not close my Yahoo account, because I get all my credit card statements sent to that email address, and all my bank statements.

    It is very important to me, so please do not close it, you will see that I use it every day.

    Thanks,
    Cynthia Smith
