Haven't heard from Yahoo, but I often get those kinds of requests from frauds for e-Bay and PayPal information. If you get a request for either of them, it should be sent to Spoof@ebay.com or Spoof@paypay.com. They will forward it to the authorities. Yahoo may have a similiar system.

This is area where we really need government regulation that works. It is estimated that about 3-5% of people respond with their information, especially the elderly.
