Hi Pamela, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.
I am very sorry about your issues with your Yahoo Mail account. I believe this is a phishing attack. The email that you got claims to be coming from Yahoo and the link you clicked redirected you to a "Yahoo-looking" page. When you entered your password ***** and other info perhaps, the info was actually sent to the hacker who created the "yahoo-looking" page and not to Yahoo itself. However, there are ways to rectify this issue and please allow me to help you with this.
First, are you now UNABLE to access the hacked account?Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.
