Hi, thanks for using I am Cris. Sorry to hear about your issue I know it must be frustrating.

Have you tried to reset the password ***** the account?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have tried to get into it the normal way & will not allow me to get past the password. I have no way to change it if I wanted to to go ahead. It looks like I will need to do just that. change my password ***** I have not long changed it at Yahoo's request because of some breach at the time aaaaaagh. is it safe for you to connect as suggested below ? ? then can I change my password *****???
Expert:  Cris replied 8 months ago.

You will need to try to reset the password. However when an email account is hacked they sometimes will change all the security questions and recovery email. If the reset does not work then next thing would be to fill out a email recovery. But first try to reset and let me know how it goes.
