I would suggest you go to http://help.yahoo.com/ and send them a detailed message about your problem.

well, i sent 6 emails to yahoo, and they claimed my birthdate didnt match their records. someone has been in my account and changed things, and there is a new link on my profile to f.b.i.@f.b.i.org i dont know if it is a prank or not. the email link for the fbi does not allow me to send the email either.
thanks for your reply...but i am afraid who ever has this account is smarter than i am....

why don't you lock them out of it for 24 hrs. Also what is the account? There is always the possibility of getting it back. And of course that is not an actual email account that you posted there. Sorry but Gmail is almost the only Email service that allows "." in the account name.

Also try using an alternate retrieval method if you plan on opening another account. Such as "a backup email address with a overriding backdoor." Not sure how to set it up, but yahoo and hotmail are both allowing it now.

Good Luck.

If you already went down that trail with Yahoo, 6 emails and they don't think it is you because the cracker changed things, don't screw with it. Just open another account at yahoo, and be sure to set a better password, one not so easy to crack.
