Same here. As the "email" is rather short, MailScanner doesn't pick up
anything. I don't think there is much room for classification - the mail 
is rather short, with a varying link.

Do you run DCC/Pyzor and friends?

For now, report those accounts with Yahoo:

I did with all the spam I've got. Within 1 day the accounts get deleted.
