If you are using an msn premium account, you can call msn tech support and have you password reset. otherwise if its a free account, the email is pretty much gone.

Someone stole my account on April 29 and I register on April 21 and I had new email set up on it and all.


Unfortunately, Sony staff are the only ones that can help you. Sony does have procedures in place for regaining a hacked account as it happens often. Bear in mind that you may have to escalate several steps to finally obtain closure depending on how experienced the hacker is. Just be prepared to give them all the information you used to establish the account. Without that you will be unable to regain control of the account.

Phishing "Protect urself" Know What Hackers Do !This is a featured page



Phishing continues to be one of the most significant security threats facing Internet users. During 2007, scammers distributed millions of phishing scam emails that targeted many different entities. Phishing attacks are sure to continue in 2008 and scammers will use such attacks to steal money and identities from many new victims around the world. Armed with a little knowledge about how phishing scams work, however, you can ensure that you do not become one of these victims. phishing-scammer.jpg
Phishing scammers continue to find new victims all around the world

A phishing scam is one in which victims are tricked into providing personal information such as account numbers, passwords and credit card details to what they believe to be a legitimate company or organization. In order to carry out this trick, the scammers often create a "look-a-like" webpage that is designed to resemble the target company's official website. Typically, emails are used as "bait" in order to get the potential victim to visit the bogus website. The emails use various devious ruses to trick readers into clicking on the included links, thereby opening the bogus website. Information submitted on these bogus websites is harvested by the scammers and may then be used to steal funds from the user's accounts and/or steal the victim's identity.

Phishing scam emails are created to give the illusion that they have been sent by a legitimate institution. Emails may arrive in HTML format and include logos, styling, contact and copyright information virtually identical to those used by the targeted institution. To further create the illusion of legitimacy, some of the secondary links in these bogus emails may lead to the institution's genuine website. However, one or more of the hyperlinks featured in the body of the email will point to the fraudulent website.

Links in phishing scam messages are often disguised to make it appear that they lead to the genuine institution site. The sender address of the email may also be disguised in such a way that it appears to have originated from the targeted company. Because they are sent in bulk to many recipients, scam emails use generic greetings such as "Dear account holder" or "Dear [targeted institution] customer". If an institution needed to contact a customer about some aspect of his or her account, the contact email would address the customer by name.

Hullo My Hotmail acc I tried too many times and caused this to appear on same page SIGN-IN IS BOCKED


Dear Frank Rogers,

Account temporarily blocked
To help protect your account from fraud or abuse, we might have temporarily blocked it because we noticed some unusual activity. We know having your account blocked is frustrating, but we can help you get it back easily in a few steps.

Unblock your account
To unblock your account go to https://account.live.com and sign in to your blocked account. You can enter a phone number to request a security code be sent to you via text message, or if your phone doesn\'t support texting, via an automated phone call.

After you enter the security code, you\'ll need to change your password to complete the unblocking process. Make sure you create a strong, unique password to help keep your account secure. You can use our password checker to test the strength of your new password before you use it.

Problems with the security code
The quickest way to get your account unblocked is online, by requesting and then entering a code. If you haven\'t tried unblocking your account online, we recommend you start there.



  • If you didn\'t receive your security code at the phone number you entered, try again or try a different number by clicking I don\'t have a code. You\'ll be presented with another opportunity to request a code.

    If you\'re requesting a text, use a phone number that accepts text messages.




If your code doesn\'t work, make sure you enter the numbers in the body of the message, and not the numbers in the header.



My account is still blocked
If you can\'t unblock your account with the security code and changing your password, customer support can still help you get your account back. To contact customer support, you\'ll need to sign in to your account, and fill out an online form. Provide as much information as you can to help us verify your identity. We take your account security seriously and need these details to help us prevent hackers from accessing your account. You\'ll need to provide an alternate email address where a Microsoft customer service representative will contact you within 24 hours.

Once you\'ve gotten your account unblocked, you can get more info on how to help protect your account



My account has been hacked
If your account has been compromised (hacked) it means that someone stole your password and might be using your account to access your personal information or send junk email.

How did a hacker get my password?

Hackers use several techniques to get your account password.




  • Malware: If you install a program from the Internet that isn\'t from a trusted publisher, it might include malware that logs your keystrokes or searches your PC for saved passwords.


  • Attacking Internet sites: If hackers break into an Internet site and steal account info, they can check it against other sites to see if you\'ve re-used your password.


  • Phishing: Hackers often trick people into sending them their account data.


How can I recover my account?

To recover your account, follow these steps.




1. Clear your PC of viruses or malware before you change your password


Most hackers get your password through malware that\'s been installed on your PC without your knowledge (for example, when you download a new screen saver, toolbar, or other software from an untrustworthy source.) It\'s important to clear your PC of viruses or malware before you change your password. That way, the hackers won\'t get your new password.

If you have a good antivirus program installed, make sure it is up-to-date, then do a full scan of your system. If you don\'t have an antivirus app installed on your PC, Microsoft offers some free solutions.




  • If you\'re running Windows 7, you can download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.


  • If you\'re running Windows 8.1, you already have Windows Defender. To turn it on, from the Start screen or Search charm search for "Windows Defender" and tap or click Windows Defender, then follow the instructions on the screen.


Regardless of which antivirus app you install, run a full scan on your PC before you change your password. You should also set up your antivirus app to automatically get updates and to scan your PC on a regular basis.


2. Change or reset your password



After you run the antivirus app, try to sign in to your account and change your password. If you can\'t sign in, try to reset your password.


Make sure you create a strong password





Don\'t



Do




Don\'t use the same password for different accounts.




Do make the new password significantly different from previous passwords.




Don\'t recycle passwords.




Do change your password regularly.




Don\'t use a single word for your password.




Do use a password phrase (no spaces between words) that can\'t be easily guessed.




Don\'t use easy-to-remember personal info like your name, names of family members, your address, or phone number.




Do use an easy-to-remember sentence or phrase converted into a string of initials, numbers, and symbols.




Don\'t use passwords like "password," "money$$$," or "12345678."




Do use our password checker to test your new password before you use it.




3. Reset your account settings



Since someone else had access to your account, we\'ve cleared your account settings and removed any send-as addresses, email forwarding, and auto-replies. Here\'s how to reset these options.





  1. Click the Options icon 978d981c-a380-4f87-aa7b-f85c072a788a_34.jpg, and then click Options.


  2. Select one or more of the following settings.Send/receive accounts: Under Managing your account, click Your email accounts.

    Reply-to address: Under Writing email, click Reply-to address.

    Email forwarding: Under Managing your account, click Email forwarding.

    Auto-reply: Under Managing your account, click Sending automated vacation replies.


  3. Enter the required info and then click Save.





4. Restore deleted email and contacts



As soon as we detect that your account might have been hacked, we start saving your deleted messages in a safe place. In Outlook.com, click the Deleted folder. At the bottom of the window, click recover deleted messages.

Outlook.com will recover as many messages as possible and put them in your Deleted folder. Any messages not recovered are permanently lost.

If contacts have been deleted, you might be able to restore them. See Restore deleted contacts.






Note





  • Email deleted from children\'s accounts can\'t be restored. This way, parents can be confident that when they delete messages from their children\'s accounts, they stay deleted.





5. Help prevent future hacks



To prevent your account from being hacked in the future, get more info on how to help protect your account.

For more help with keeping safe online, contact customer support.

"I" have not locked anything. Yahoo may have, or it may be that someone stole your account information and locked you out. Try contacting Yahoo for assistance.

How do I see what devices have been using my google account


Recognize the signs of unauthorized access on your email account.
An obvious indicator is when email messages appear as having been read even though you haven't read them.

Also, if you check the "Sent Mail" and "Deleted Mail" folders, you may notice messages that have been emailed or deleted without your permission.

Another sign is if the secondary email account has been changed.
Check the "Sent Mail" folder for forwards from your email account.

The email address that receives the forwards is likely to be owned by your email hacker.
The same is true if the secondary email account has been changed.

The owner is probably the person who has unauthorized access to your email account.
Check the IP addresses of the activity on your email account.

If you are using Google's Gmail service, this is as simple as logging in and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
There it will indicate the time and the IP address of the last activity on your email account.
If you click on the activity monitor, you can find even more information about the person who accessed your email account.

(If you have another email provider, you will have to contact their support for this information.) The IP address indicates the location and identity of the person who has logged into your account.

Two problems.((1)WHEN I SHUT DOWN I GET A MESSAGE "other people are logged in to your computer do you still wish to shut down"(2)my neighbours seem to know when my computer is in use.


Hi E-Davies, Sounds like your neighbors hacked into your computer, thats what hackers do you know? and if you got sensitive info on your computer, they know that too. Thats how people get their Identity stole. A good Spyware and Anti-Virus Software will take care of that for you. Good Luck.
