I can't retrieve my password. I changed it and forgot it
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Thank you for writing back. Can you please tell me the problem email account so that I can check its status and recovery options?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Thank you for the information. Please give me a moment to check the recovery options of this account.

Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

To reset your forgotten password, please answer this security question:

What is your oldest cousin's name?

Randy
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Thank you. Please answer question 2:

Who is your favorite author?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I don't know, I don't remember answering that question, but it would be EGWhite
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Is it 1 word only? It says wrong answer

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I don't know. Try EGW
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I did all that. I guess I need to contact Yahoo
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Yes, that will be the last resort. So you have already did the password ***** routine and you cannot pass through the second security question?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Correct
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to do the reset recovery process then because you need to answer both questions correctly. I understand it will be impossible to recall those answers to security questions especially if they were set up long ago.

Anyhow, if you want, I can remotely access your computer so that I can directly help you in contacting Yahoo to continue the recovery process.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I get charged for this. Thanks for noticing
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Unfortunately, yes, because we are a paid service site. Regarding remote access, I can only help you in submitting the form but the actual results of the recovery still depend on the information that you provide. Doing remote access with me does not guarantee recovery of your account because recovery depends solely on the information that you submit to Yahoo to prove that you own the account.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
But I did everything that you did
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

I understand, and the last option is submitting the recovery form, wherein you can tell Yahoo your claim of the account, provide your proof, and then they can decide if you will gain access or not.

Have you already tried submitting the recovery form?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No, because I just had the problem
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Never mind. You've done enough
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I'll never do this again
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

I'm very sorry if I was not able to help

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Enjoy your lunch on me
Expert:  Jess M. replied 8 months ago.

Thank you. We guarantee our service and you can always get your money back if you are not satisfied with my service. I hope you understand that my help on your case is limited, it will only be guidance or assistance since the information that you can provide will determine if you can recover it or not.

Thank you for using our service.

Best regards,

Jess
