Yahoo does not offer financial services

Yahoo is not a financial services provider. However, you can link a supported brokerage account to your Yahoo Finance account and view your holdings and balances. Beware of fake internet sites or emails that pretend to be Yahoo providing financial services

What if you suspect fraud?

If you see a site or message that claims to be Yahoo providing financial services, you should suspect it's a fraud or phishing scheme.

Yahoo does not:

  • Act as a stock broker
  • Provide wire transfers
  • Provide bill payment for non-Yahoo services
  • Process payments between sellers and buyers
  • Provide purchase protection or escrow services for buyers

If you think you are a victim of fraud, Yahoo recommends that you contact your local law enforcement officials through a non-emergency number.

  Caution - For more info about fraud and how to protect yourself, visit (choose your language on the homepage).

If you're based in the United States file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center or contact your local postal inspector and the Federal Trade Commission.
