Question about Yahoo Mail
My yahoo mail id was firstname.lastname@example.org . Yesterday I got some email from 'yahoo support ' or 'yahoo services' or similar id, requesting me to send some informatoin including email id and password, as yahoo wants to update the database and is to delete those yahoo accounts which will not reply that email. Without being much more concerned, I just replied it in the asked manner and the result was obvious. My account was hacked. Password has been changed now.
Most probabally, the question to be asked for the forgotten password has also been changed, or possiblly I have forgotten that (as I would have created the account years ago).
I have come to know that there had been sent mails to the ids from the address book, asking for some financial help. Though there has not been actual money transfered as per my knowledge, I am afraid that the account can be misused.
May I get back the control of the same account? In what way?
At least, may I close the email id completely?
My email id on gmail is email@example.com . You may respond on it.
