junk emails

Ive been getting a lot of junk email from random email addressed that I donít recognize. This started happening about 3 days ago. They all have the same format. The subject line will say for your approval or look at this. And then the email will be blank and it will have attached to it a file with a .pif suffix on it. The file size is about 100k. I have not opened any of them. This is through yahoo mail FYI. Is there any way to block these? The only thing that I can think of that I did was I posted an item for sale on EBAY for the first time about the same time all these emails started. Anyone else having this in the last few days?
