Two eons has changed my email password how do I get it back


Contact them direct. I have a feeling you have fallen foul of a phishing scam. Companies only change email passwords if you are sending bulk commercial email AKA spam, and I am thinking it is unlikely that you are spamming. But they might be using your account after they changed the password on you.

Could you have been tricked into providing details to someone?

Help I think my Yahoo Account has been compromised or hacked!!


that happend to me. all you have to do is log on to your yahoo account and change your pass code . when you leave your yahoo account make sure you log out every time. if you stay logged in theres a much bigger chance of it being hacked again. your passcode should be made up of some numbers, mixed upper case and lower case letters. after i changed mine the problems stopped.

I am getting spam attaching to old deleted emails and recent emails and sending spam messages out to friends from my yahoo account. Please givve me a phone number to talk to someone lieive. you can reach...


Do you use a yahoo client on your computer? If so, your computer is probably infected with a virus. The only reason that you would be sending spam from your email account is if someone hacked it, or if you are using a client program on your computer, and it is infected with a virus.

If you are using the web version of yahoo, please change your password immediately.

Otherwise, download the free version of malwarebytes at www.malwarebytes.org. Install and update the program, then run a scan. It will remove most viruses.

My yahoo email and facebook accounts have been hacked. I changed the passwords twice last week, trying to get rid of the hacker, but now I can't even access my yahoo account. My ex mother in law is...


Had you ever assigned a special question to your account that only you will know the answer?
It is clear to me that you have probebly use the same password for both your Facebook account and your Email.

You can go here and declare your account compromised. It will ask you for your Yahoo ID and to copy the provided code into the block provided.

Sometimes Yahoo mail servers are comprimised by spam hackers for spam use so don't go accusing you ex's mother just yet.

It would be a good idea to open a new account and tell all the people who you had in your contacts that your Yahoo account has been compromised.
There was a recent scam where hackers were hijacking accounts and sending mails to all your contacts claiming to be you and telling them to deposit large sums of money into a certain account as you are stranded in Nigeria.

With this in mind:
1) Declare your account compromised here.
2) Delete your old account.
3) Create a new account.
4) Assign security questions that ONLY you would know the answers to. (This is a major way in preventing this from happening again)
5) Send emails to all of your contacts that you had in your old account telling them of the compromisation and to ignore ALL emails from your old account.

Your rating for this solution is highly appreciated.
Thanks.

I think someone has blocked me on msn now i cant chat what do i do


A lot of people have had their msn account compromised.
Somehow someone has manage to get ahold of their user names and passwords and start sending spam thru them.
To stop the spam problem, Microsoft BLOCKS the account.
You can try changing your account's password, but usually you will end up creating a new account.

Something has taken over my e-mail accout, changing my user name and sending out spam to each address in my address book


Firstly, send an email to all in your contact list explaining what has happened so that they do not curse you for the spam. Secondly, if the user name has been changed then how are you bothered. It is someone else now. Only you have lost your yahoo account. SO, open another one in your name again.
