Question about Yahoo Mail

4 Answers

My yahoo mail account has been hacked and now not under my control.

My yahoo mail id was . 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 . You may respond on it.

    My yahoo mail id was . Last month, I got some emails from 'yahoo support ' or 'yahoo services' or similar id, requesting me to send some informatoin including email id and password urgently, as yahoo wants to update the database and if not sent the reply of the above mail, the yahoo mail account will be deleted. Without being much more concerned, I just replied it in the as was asked by yahoo mail service providers and the result was obvious. My account has been hacked. I am unable to open my mail. Password has been changed now.
    And some body is misusing my above email account. i am a senior civil service officer in the govt. of india and from security angle, the above yahoo mail account should be seized or freed from the person who is misusing my account.

    I have and my friends received mails from my above email account asking for some financial help ($500). Now, I am afraid and sure that my account can be misused by anti national elements, etc.

    urgent action is required to either seize or free the above yahoo mail account.

    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 . You may respond on it.

My yahoo account have been hacked i cant assess my mail, i can't reset my password i need help

With the amount of dependencies constantly growing on the usage of emails it is quite difficult to imagine your email account getting hacked. Losing your personal emails, pictures, contacts, registrations details, confidential files, etc. And once a Yahoo account is hacked, the first thing that is found altered in most cases is the zip code and the password. Hackers even change you alternate email id, in order to gain complete control over the account.

If your account has been hacked, there is no point in wasting time in looking for tricks to get back the account. The amount of time you waste, is the amount of time the hacker gets to browse through the account. So, without wasting time, send in a mail to Yahoo Security department @ "" mentioning the details of the problem. Do mention few details like the last password, the last time you accessed the account, and all the information that you had given on the registration page(at-least some of them). You would receive a reply soon, giving you the details to follow.
