I have bt broadband and have a Yahoo basic email service which is free. I have received an email from Yahoo saying they will take a payment of 0.01p, (yes , one penny) from my account tomorrow. Stating my monthly payment has changed and an advanced payment of 0.01p will be taken. I pay my payments to BT.com. It's very confusing. Has anyone else received this or is it one of those attempts to get you to reply ?.
We rang Bt, they did not know anything about it, so we rang Yahoo. It seems to keep our free email address their system is to charge one penny and then "remove" it or in real terms refund it. An employee forgot to "remove" it, hence the email received. We have been assured that it wont happen again but one asks oneself why bother in the first place, red tape probably. I know it cost us telephone calls for about 30 minutes, but it was better to be safe than sorry. I agree, stoppimg the payment arrangements could cause bother that is why we phoned first. We are all aware of the phishing going on, luckily this wasn't the case here. Thank you for help folks. Cheers.
