    I bet an ounce of pure gold that Yahoo won't even get 0.1% of this back. It could take years to get anything back, considering these scammers are all over the world, and also the costs of getting this awarded $$$$ could be ridiculously high. But Yahoo being a greedy corporate organisation they will want every cent they can get their hands on.
