So all those scam emails with laughable English and ridiculous
claims of lottery wins, NOK, ASEM, check mule jobs, and all of that
crap are coming from people who are so darn savvy that they
know how to forge headers? How likely is that, considering the
not-so-arduous process of opening a Yahoo mail account?

We are sorry for the time it has taken to respond to your email. Due to
an internal issue for which we apologize, we are just now responding to
your message. Even though significant time has passed, we want to
address your comments, as we take all abuse reports seriously.
Mass distribution of unsolicited email messages, or "spamming", violates
the Yahoo! Terms of Service (TOS).
After investigation, we have determined that this email message did not
originate from the Yahoo! Mail system. It appears that the sender of
this message forged the header information to give the impression that
it came from the Yahoo! Mail system.
We take the operation of Yahoo! Mail very seriously. Unfortunately,
there is no control over messages sent through other email systems and
it's not possible to preempt the misuse of the Yahoo! name in forged
headers. While Yahoo! cannot technically prevent its domain from being
forged in the headers of an email message, actions have been taken
against companies in an effort to prevent further forgery of the Yahoo!
brand and to seek damages as appropriate. Individuals are strongly
discouraged from forging the Yahoo! domain in the future and appropriate
action will be taken as necessary.
