Cant access my yahoo ID

I was asked for Yahoo ID details like name and password. but I ignored it beliving that it may be a fake mail from someone.

Some 4 days back, when I tried to login to Yahoo, it said that login ID and password is invalid. When tried to, it said it is locked for security reasons and I can try after 24 hours. Still the ID is blocked and I cant access.

Please help.

    Your account is locked when someone enters an
    incorrect login multiple times (usually around 30). Yahoo! locks the
    account for "security reasons" and you are unable to access your chat
    names. Cool thing is, these are a piece of cake to unlock. All you need
    is a list of Yahoo servers to log in with. Every time you login, you are
    using what's called a server to access yahoo. You login with a cookie,
    which is sort of like an information packet or ID proving that you are
    who you claim to be, and the account is yours.

    When people attempt to log your name in multiple times with a locking
    tool, all they are doing is logging in over and over with an incorrect
    password until your cookie expires, which means you will no longer be
    allowed to login. So, when you find yourself locked, what you need to do
    is refresh your cookie. But how can you do that when the yahoo server
    you were using has blocked you?

    Simple, find another server. Yahoo has servers all over the place. There
    are more than I'd care to count. I'll include a pretty decent sized
    list with this tutorial. All you have to do is paste one of these
    servers in your browser and log in on the page you see. Unless you have
    been locked on that server as well, you will receive a fresh cookie and
    will be able to log in to messenger again.

    Tons of people try to go through their email and login there to unlock
    an account, but a smart locker will shut down your mail server first,
    then cut off your chat server. Most people don't know what to do if the
    email is blocked, so they give up trying. That's why I don't even bother
    with the email method. I simply pick another server, log in, and I'm
    good to go. There are so many servers out there that it is impossible to
    lock them all. Even if they could, the lock is only for about 12 hours,
    and then you're back in business.

I cannot login to my account.i have tried all password that i use but i cant get connected.i cant remember answers to my verification questions.

call Yahoo Inc at 001-408-349-1572 or 001-866-562-7219. the computerised reply will asks you to click 1 for accounts 2 for information. Click 2
then again a list of selections will be asked.,select 'password'. later you will be put on a real customer service person.
He will ask you - date of birth, approx date when the account was hacked, approx what was the last mail you accessed or some idea about some mails that you accessed last like sender's name etc.
If you are able to answer these things you will be asked to name the alternate email ID which you have mentioned in your yahoo account or the alternate email ID to which they will send the new password. good luck.
