  1. You are doing what you have to do, that is letting Yahoo deal with this and return your account to you.
  2. Hi Rolli59,

    It's been more than 24 hours and I still cannot get into my account. Now, my account is locked for 12 hours -> does that mean that hijacker is locked out as well?

    The hijacker changed alternate mailing email address in Yahoo Password helper. My list of friends emails was used by hijacker who pose as me requesting for money.

    Still no news or action from Yahoo.

    Is there any way that I can contact Yahoo and let them know it's urgent ?
  3. Do they have a phone number? Are you reporting it the right way?
  4. Hi Rolli59,

    I have a cell phone but there is no contact number on Yahoo page for me to call them. The only thing I did was report it via email.

    Do you know any Yahoo contact number ?
  5. No that is why I was asking! All you can do is keep sending them mails with your issues they will eventually answer.
  6. I just sent another email to Yahoo.

    If my account is locked out, will the hijacker be able to access it ?
  7. Probably not! Unless it is just your password that has changed!
  8. Hi Rolli59,

    It's more than 1 week and still no news from Yahoo. All I got are automated replies from them. The hijacker emails to my friends and my other email addresses . When I clicked on reply, the hijacker wanted the replies to go to instead of my original email address

    Still cannot get into my account.

    Is there a way to track the IP of ?
