Hello! I am IT Miro and I will assist you on this question.

I checked "*****@******.***" and received this response:
"Your Yahoo account has been inactive for an extended period of time and is being recycled"
That means the account has been de-activated and only Yahoo! support can attempt to re-activate it.
May I know which phone number(s) you have tried in order to contact Yahoo! support?

Please call the following number instead:
1(###) ###-####

No I was trying to speak to an actual person and the automated said couldn't help hung up on me
Expert:  IT Miro replied 2 years ago.
Since calling Yahoo! via phone didn't work, you can try with an e-mail contact form. To be able to use it, you need to have a valid e-mail address (doesn't need to be a Yahoo! e-mail address).
You can explain the problem there and wait until someone from Yahoo! replies back.
Have you already tried that?
If not, I can provide the instructions for you.

Expert:  IT Miro replied 2 years ago.
Facebook doesn't have customer support, so you won't be able to contact them.
Your only chance is to contact Yahoo! to check if they can restore your old e-mail account so that you can log on there and unlock your Facebook account.
I can provide the instructions for contacting Yahoo! support via e-mail, but I cannot guarantee they will restore your account as it has been recycled.
Let me know if you want that.

Yes please...I m think that's crazy theres no way Facebook could help me
Expert:  IT Miro replied 2 years ago.
Here is what to do:
1. Click on THIS LINK
2. As Topic, select Password ***** sign in
3. As Sub-topic, select Unable to sign in
4. Type your Yahoo! account in the box and click Submit
5. Since your account has been recycled, the Password ***** tool won't help, so click on the Email icon in the "We're here to help!" section
6. There fill in the report. You can describe the issue in details in the "Detailed description of issue" box. Make sure to use a valid contact e-mail address. After sending in the report, you will need to wait for about 2-3 business days and Yahoo! support will reply.
So, the solution of the problem would be to have the same Yahoo! e-mail address as before which you can access OR to have all e-mails redirected to another e-mail address you can access, so that you can receive e-mail confirmation link from Facebook.
In case Yahoo! support says the same e-mail address cannot be used again, ask them about redirecting all e-mails to another e-mail address. I am sure they will think of something.
Just be patient until you receive a response from them. I wish you best of luck!
