It's definitely a scam of one kind or another. Even the encoding is munged. Just delete it.
I get similar things asking me to verify Citibank info and Ebay info, and I don't have an account with either of them.
I have received two of the following emails regarding my Yahoo ID. I haven't clicked on the link provided in the email (which I have ommited in this post). I have NEVER before received anything like this so I'm wondering if it's a "trick" to get you to click the link and get a virus or something. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the content of the Yahoo email:
Dear Yahoo Member,
We must check that your Yahoo ID was registered by real people. So, to help Yahoo! prevent automated registrations, please click on the link and complete code verification process:
P.S. What's really strange here is than I had to retype the above email content because had I not done so, this is what it would look like if I copied and pasted it directly from the Yahoo email:
