Hmm... someone might have hacked your account. Try checking your inbox from the email provider your Facebook account is associated with. For example, if your email address has a domain name of yahoo.com, then log in to Yahoo, check your inbox. Facebook sends you an email right away if your Facebook account was hacked. The email they send informs you that your email address was replaced with a new one. Then it asks you if that is your own doing, you can just ignore it. But since you suspect someone is using your account, then that person might have replaced your email address with his. If that is the case, then there's an option in that email Facebook sent you to 'let them know' or 'secure your account'. Click on it. If you're successful, you should be able to get hold of your account back. And Facebook system will even prompt you to change your password.
Moral of the story? You should not give any of your email addresses to anyone. Not even to family members, relatives or friends. If the computer you're using is also used by other people and there are no separate user accounts for each [meaning everyone can log into that computer as administrator then one safety tip is to NOT save your password in Mozilla Firefox. If you do and another person who is Internet savvy clicked on the browser's Tools menu [Tools>Options>Security>Saved Passwords] when you're away, then that person can hack your account/s. If you're the owner of the computer and you're sharing it with other people, better create a guest account or user accounts for each person who uses your computer, but make sure you're the administrator of your own computer and that each of you has his/her own password when logging on to the computer.
You received this email supposedly from Google mail?
if you clicked a link in the email asking you to change password you may have been hacked.
Have you tried going to Gmail and requesting a new password using your same email user name?
If that does not work you may have been hacked and you cannot get into your old mail.
You may need to create a new gmail account and NEVER give out your user name or password to someone sending you an email asking for it. NO ONE should be asking you for your private information in an email.
Some internet companies will lock your account if you have sent out an unusually high volume of emails. This is to prevent spamming. If you haven't been sending an unusually high number of emails someone may have hacked your account. You will need to contact Yahoo to get this issue resolved.
I hope you mean that your Yahoo mail account has been hacked. If this is the case, just open your account profile and change your password - to something unique and something you will remember. Notify your friends (in your yahoo contact list) that you were hacked and to not open any attachments or links from strange emails from your address.
If someone has stolen your yahoo account, and has change your password, and you no longer have access, you will need to notify yahoo customer service. I believe that you can report this to email@example.com
Provide yahoo as much information as possible, your user name, your last access to the account, and other email accounts listed (for backup security purposes). Do not list any passwords or dates of birth or any other security information.
Well, if you post the pw and user name online someone will surely hack it. Go to where the login is and use the password reset link they provide. You have two options, get the password sent to your alternate email if you spcified one or you can answer a secret question to reset it yourself. If that does not work contact Yahoo and they will send you a new password. And in future do NOT post usernames or passwords online in a public forum even if you are locked out of an account.
Yes your email has most likely been hacked. This obviously means someone is reading your mail. Create a new account with a totally different user name (if your user name was leannravendon't make it leannraven2) and send an email to all of your friends to send mail to your new one and to stop sending to the old one. I don't know of any other way to fix this.
