To verify it is from paypal just login to your own paypal account and the message will be in there. If it isnt forward it to paypal themselves so they can investigate. A word of warning when receiving any emails from anyone asking for info like this ,is to always type the web address into the browser yourself rather than clicking links they have supplied in the email

How to get your PS3 PSN password back


Hi everyone, I'm writing this tip because I am seeing a ton of questions about how to get their password's back. <br /><br />The reason this question is arising is because of the recent Playstation Network shut-down a lot of sign in information was compromised. There-fore Playstation is requiring everyone to create a new password to better protect themselves. <br /><br />The problem is that a lot of people have made their accounts with email addresses that no longer exist and therefore are unable to receive the email to get a new password. Also a lot of people are not receiving the email quickly. <br /><br />--For those of you that still have the email account active and aren't receiving an email, note that this email can take up to 24 hours to be sent!<br /><br />The only thing you can do is contact the Playstation Customer Support and have your account user-name and console ID number ready to go. Their phone number is 800-345-7669.<br /><br />This should help a lot of people!<br />

How do I change my screen name


Change your username If you use Gmail with your Google Account, it's not currently possible to change your Gmail username after you've registered unless you want to delete Gmail from your account and use a different, non-Gmail address for your Google Account. You can also create another Google Account with a different Gmail username.
If you don't use Gmail with your Google Account, you can change your account username to another email address at any time. Your username is the full email address you used to create your account.
To change the email address on your account, just follow these steps:
  1. Visit the Google Accounts homepage.
  2. Sign in to your account.
  3. Click Edit in the Email section.
  4. Enter your new email address and your current password.
  5. Click Save email address.
Once you've saved the change, you should receive a verification message at the email address you just entered. To complete the change, you'll need to click the verification link in this message. You should also receive a message at your old email address confirming that we've registered the change to your account. If you don't receive the verification email, check your spam folders or request a new email.
Note:
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an existing Gmail address, but we invite you to add a new Gmail address to your Google Account.
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an email address that's already associated with a Google Account.
  • If you want to make your alternate email address the new primary address, you'll first need to delete your alternate email address from the account.
  • The account username that you choose needs to be an active, valid email address that you can access.

How do I see what devices have been using my google account


Recognize the signs of unauthorized access on your email account.
An obvious indicator is when email messages appear as having been read even though you haven't read them.

Also, if you check the "Sent Mail" and "Deleted Mail" folders, you may notice messages that have been emailed or deleted without your permission.

Another sign is if the secondary email account has been changed.
Check the "Sent Mail" folder for forwards from your email account.

The email address that receives the forwards is likely to be owned by your email hacker.
The same is true if the secondary email account has been changed.

The owner is probably the person who has unauthorized access to your email account.
Check the IP addresses of the activity on your email account.

If you are using Google's Gmail service, this is as simple as logging in and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
There it will indicate the time and the IP address of the last activity on your email account.
If you click on the activity monitor, you can find even more information about the person who accessed your email account.

(If you have another email provider, you will have to contact their support for this information.) The IP address indicates the location and identity of the person who has logged into your account.

Security question


Forgetting your Yahoo! password or ID can happen to anyone, Yahoo! has established procedures for you to retrieve both without having to create a new account.

The password and ID retrieval process is a short and simple one, but you must follow it exactly. The forgotten password process does not give you the password you created when signing up for the account, it gives you a new one, which you can change later. Forgotten Password

To recover your Yahoo! account password, click on the "Sign In" link from the Yahoo! homepage, which will take you to the "Sign in to Yahoo!" page.

Follow the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.
Select the "I forgot my password" radio button on the next page and then click "Next."

Enter your Yahoo! ID and the code as it is shown and then click "Next."
From the following page, choose whether you want your password sent to the alternate email address or cellular phone number given when the account was created, and then click "Next."

An email is then sent to your alternate email address or cellular phone inviting you to reset your password.

Forgotten ID

From the Yahoo! homepage, follow the "Sign In" link located near the top of the page.
On the next page, click on the "I can't access my account" link directly below the yellow "Sign In" button.

On the next page, you must provide the alternate email address, birth date, country of residence and postal code given when the account was created.

When finished, click on the "Next" button and your ID will be emailed to your alternate email address.

Password Security Questions

If you do not have access to the alternate email address or cell phone number provided when the Yahoo! account was created, you must click the "I can't access any of the above" radio button on the "Please select an option to reset your password" page.

After clicking "Next," you must provide the answers to the security questions selected when the account was created before you are able to reset the account's password.

When All Else Fails

If the Yahoo! account password or ID retrieval methods don't work, you may want to create a new Yahoo! account.

This is done by following the "Sign Up" link at the top of the Yahoo! homepage, next to the "Sign In" link mentioned earlier.

If you choose to create a new account, be sure to remember the alternate email and cellular number you provide in case you find yourself in a similar situation down the road.

My email address disapeared from my screen.


Now which email account was it ????

Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.
For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.
Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.
If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.
Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.
Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.
The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.
If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.
Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email
Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.
Click on "I can't access my account."
Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.
These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.
Yahoo will give you your user ID.
After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.
Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email
Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.
Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.
Click on "I have forgotten password"
Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.
If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.
Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.
Enter a new password.
Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email
Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."
Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."
If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.
Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.
Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.
Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.
Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

Have a problem with login Yahoo and getting message saying "You are logging from device we won't recognise you" and I forgot my answer for secret question.


The prompt you are receiving is called "Second sign-in verification," and it is designed to protect your account from unauthorized access.

There are several ways to confirm your identity:

Send a code to mobile phone or non-Yahoo! alternate email address:

  1. Go to the Yahoo! sign-in page (http://login.yahoo.com).
  2. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click Sign In.
    • You may need to enter the security CAPTCHA code. (If you do not see a randomly generated code, simply proceed to the next step.)
  3. Select Receive Code and enter your non-Yahoo! alternate email address or mobile number.
    • Note: A code will be sent to the location you entered; make sure you do not navigate away from the page where you entered your alternate email address or mobile number.
  4. Once you receive this code, you will need to enter the code on the page where you entered your alternate email address or mobile number.
    • You may be required to update your current password.

Note: At this time Yahoo! alternate email cannot be used to confirm your identity. If your alternate email address is a Yahoo! email, please use your mobile number or security question.

Verify your security question:

  1. Go to the Yahoo! sign-in page.
  2. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click Sign In.
    • You may need to enter the security CAPTCHA code.
  3. Provide the answer for the security question displayed and click Verify Answer.
    • You may be required to update your current password.

If you do not have a non-Yahoo! alternate email address, valid mobile number, or cannot verify your security question, you may need to contact Yahoo! to confirm your identity. Note: When filling out the form, please select Yahoo! Account under "Product."

I forgot my password and dont remember my answer to the security question. HELP


You can get a new password, a Yahoo! ID reminder, or both. If you forgot your Yahoo! ID or password, go to the Sign-in Problems page.
If you forgot your Yahoo! ID, you need to provide three pieces of information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your birthday
  • Your ZIP or postal code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
  • Your alternate email address -Note: You must have access to this email address
  • Country code (at the time you created your Yahoo! account or when you last updated it)
Be sure to provide the same information you gave the last time you registered for a new Yahoo! ID or password or the last time you updated your account.
If you forgot your password, you can create a new one. But first you'll have to provide the following information so we can confirm your identity:
  • Your Yahoo! ID
  • Alternate email address, mobile phone number, or the answers to your secret questions
A Reset Your Password link will be sent to your alternate email address. Click the link and enter your new password in the Reset your password page.
If you entered your secret question incorrectly or forgot what you originally entered, for security reasons, we cannot tell you what your Yahoo! ID is or let you create a new password.

When you request a new password, need technical support, or have questions about your billing, Yahoo! usually asks you for your Secret Question for verification that you are who you say you are.
To protect your account from unauthorized access, Yahoo! must be able to confirm your identify. You can confirm your identity in one of the following ways:
  • Answer your Secret Question (also referred to as a Security Question)
  • Provide a valid alternate email address or mobile phone associated with your account (if you no longer have access to that email address or phone number, it's not valid)
If you can't sign in but have provided an alternate email address or phone number, you won't need to verify your Security Question. Go to the Sign-in Problems page for help logging in to your account.
If you cannot verify your Secret Question and your account doesn't have an alternate email address or phone number we can use to identify you, then you will not be able to reset your password, get answers to questions about your billing, or receive technical support.
If you cannot verify the answer to your Security Question, you cannot change it to something else.
We strongly suggest that you add and verify an active alternate email address or mobile phone for your account. This is an email address we can use to communicate with you if you no longer have access to your Yahoo! Mail account. To add or edit an alternate email address or mobile phone, go to your ACCOUNT INFO: Manage your email addresses page.
