You may have been invited to join something called B4UParty, with my
name in the From line.

It was, of course, not from me, but from them;  they borrowed my Yahoo
address book.  For what it's worth, I think it was more a matter of
stupid programming than malicious spoofing.

If you do join their service, which I have not evaluated, I suggest you
do not allow them to use your Yahoo, Hotmail, or whatever addressbook
to invite your friends.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
