Is mybloglog discontinuing?

There’s is a yahoo  mybloglog discontinuance scam going around. so users of mybloglog and  yahoo better beware. I became suspicious because i know i have not registered for the mybloglog premuim services yet i got this email.

Surprisingly enough the question that worries me is , how come they knew i had a my blog log account?

The yahoo Mybloglog scam

This is a scam email. Why? Let me quickly summarize what I have observed in this scam email that indicate it is a scam email.
1. Email did not have the Yahoo! official logo
2. Source of this email is not convincing!!
From: Yahoo! “one.yahoo-email.com>”</YAHOO@>
3. The link redirect you to other web page, that is,  “http://yahoo-email.com/a/hBNZmRnBs19FXB8XEGCNshZL4WB/mybloglog7” instead of what is shown “https://billing.yahoo.com”, and “http://yahoo-email.com/a/hBNZmRnBs19FXB8XEGCNshZL4WB/mybloglog2” instead of the real help page of Yahoo!.

Here is the scam email i got

yahoo mybloglog scam email

4. If you go and Google the website of “http://yahoo-email.com”, you will find nothing. In other words, even Google does not want to index this website, do you think you can trust this website?
For those you receive the similar email, do ignore it and just report to Yahoo!. For the sake of display, I purposely remove the re-directly from this scam email to avoid my reader to be re-direct to those scam website unconsciously.
