Is this genuine BT email upgrade address?


[link to this post]
 
I'm a member of a church and we have used BT Broadband for years, we know that BT has upgraded their Yahoo Email and will soon be changing from Yahoo to possibly Cploud. We upgraded our BTYahoo via the official BTYahoo sign in webpage, but we keep getting an email to Upgrade to BTYahoo when we click on the Upgrade button we are directed to a sign in page that has the Yahoo logo but nothing about BT! This is the address of the sign in page we are directed to freshkidXnauzkaXnetXloginupdate.php which looks suspicious to me. Am I correct in saying that this email does not come from BT and therefore the address shown above is fake?

Yes fake, and I hope you did not click or type anything into the page?
I would suggest a malware check on the PC just for safety sake.

I've obscured the link a bit more to stop anyone doing a simple follow, but left enough so others can see how odd the address was.

No I didn't enter anything in the boxes as I did have my suspicions fro the very start as the page only had the Yahoo logo, the BT logo was missing and once I saw the address I became even more suspicious which is why I posted here.

Thanks.
