Expert:  Mac Tech replied 6 years ago.
Sorry to hear about this.

Do you wish to close the account or get a new password?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I would like to get a new password XXXXX possible thanks!
Expert:  Mac Tech replied 6 years ago.
In case of a hacked account send a mail describing your problem to account-security-help @cc.yahoo-inc.com
Note: please delete the blank space between help and @ which I had to insert because Yahoo can't handle long addresses. If this doesn't help, call Yahoo: 1-408-349-1572, explain to a customer service person what happened. They will ask you to do certain things and then they compare your original info with the changed info. Within 24 hrs you should get your account back!

Good luck and let me know how it goes!
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
OK will do.

Thank you!
