You must tell Christina about the questionable E-mail sent to you in her name requesting money and assistance that you posted about here recently.

A word of caution here. It was not Yahoo that sent you that e-mail, but a malicious hacker who now has your login data and has probably changed them so that you can't access your old account anymore. If you do not have a firewall installed, get one now. And a virusscanner. Look for Trojans.
Rule of thumb on the internet is:
- never open a mail with a zip file from someone you don't know, or an exe file.
- never give your password and login data to an e-mail asking so. This is one of the oldest tricks in the books. Yahoo and other legitimate sites will never ask for your password and login data.
