Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to assist you today. I am looking through your question now and will reply in a moment. Thanks for your patience...

Expert:  comp_audio replied 1 year ago.

In regards ***** ***** access to an account that someone else created, there are regulations put in place to not allow this for security purposes. It is not Microsoft that is causing it, but hotmail. The security measures are there to prohibit cyber hackers from gaining access to someone else's email.

is the person that created the account available to get the actual password?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No they are no longer in the area. Have absolutely no contact info.

Can you help me?
Expert:  comp_audio replied 1 year ago.

I can suggest that you either create a NEW account for the purpose or we can try to reach out to hotmail and try to get them to assist, but they will most likely deny the request. But I am willing to try.

Expert:  comp_audio replied 1 year ago.

Please reply and let me know how you would like to proceed. If you prefer I can assist you in getting a new account setup as well.

Never mind I am trying to get my money back, poor service from the main office. I'll set up an account myself.
Expert:  comp_audio replied 1 year ago.

I am confused how I gave poor service? Were you meaning that your association's front office gave poor service?

You asked if it was possible to gain access to an email account that was not created by you and I answered it honestly and fully. Additionally I offered to try and help with gaining access to it although chances were slim it would have succeeded due to security regulations. I then offered to help create a new account for your association. If do not understand how that is poor service.

Please reply and tell me what was done wrong so that I can further assist to better serve you.

You did not give me poor service.
I have an issue with the main office as they charged my credit card 3 time in 5 minutes.
Not exactly the best customer service from them. I got a call from my bank fraud department because of this unusual activity, and now Answer is not wanting to give me a refund.

Expert:  comp_audio replied 1 year ago.

So since it is not anything I did, are you going to accept my answer and rate me 5 stars I hope? If you give me the link to your other request I may be able to assist in getting your refund.
