    Yesterday when i tried to sign in to Yahoo Messenger i was unable to do so . I tried a couple of time but did not succeed . Then i decided to go the website and check my Yahoo mail . There i got the same error that my password was incorrect even though i hadnt changed it . I clicked on the lost passoword link . I was taken to a page where i had to enter my Bdate , Zip code and country . Luckily i remebered the correct info as i had entered the correct ones while making my account . But after submitting the info i got a response saying that � For your protection your account has been temporarily disabled “ .

    Dont know what is the reason for it . Please help.

    I once had such problem with ebay. Maybe you entered your yahoo id and password info in some site acting as yahoo, they look exactly like yahoo , but not real . thus they'd steal ur info and use ur account thinking that u might be a super business tycoon.

    Yahoo temporarily bans ur account for your own protection.

    The right term is 'phishing'. But I doubt if it was that unless he followed a phishing mail.
