What kind of email address is this....y.ahoo.it/imsms.

I am a caregiver using a website to look for jobs, was contacted by text instead of through the website, recieved a message from this odd number with only 8 digits and a different yahoo email address "y.ahoo.it/imsms." Is this a hearing impaired number/email? They said they were hearing impaired. I am trying to be cautious since they found me on the website but did not go through the website to contact me. I have been contacted by scammers in the past.

Be very cautious. There is a scam going around for people claiming to be seeking caregivers, when the person responds the potential client had asked for large sums of money for medication and such promising to pay it back and you never see the money or hear from them again. My friend just got scammed out of 2800 bucks and the address was similar to the one you posted

The y.ahoo.it/imsms is created by users interacting on the Yahoo network and it can redirect to anywhere on the web. However, Yahoo advises its users to preview and be sure of the address before going clicking on it. Anybody can send you that kind of email address, including scammers. For more details, go to http://y.ahoo.it/.

I just got a text from this same number and everything saying to send a reply INFO to the SMS or to the webite. "payton.maxwell3015: good Day you won a cruisee for 2 people no- cost c a l l 8889868139"

I'm sure it's a scam so I wouldn't risk it if I were any of you LoL.
