:thumbsup: Apparently the Yahoo Spam protection is not working to the best of their ability. How can I eleimate so much garbage coming into my personal email? Also I once heard that there is a place where these emails can be forwarded to so that they can be dealt with by the authorities? Does anyone know about this? Thanks

The link below will provide guidance for filing complaints:

You should also make sure you "mark as spam" any E-mails that do slip by Yahoo's Spamguard. Most ISPs and E-mail providers make a serious attempt to reduce the huge amount of spam sent each day, but some spammers will find ways to avoid provider's filtres.
If your E-mail provider allows you to set up personal filtres, take advantage of that feature.
