Customer Question

Hotmail says someone is tryimg to use my account and has blocked me out of my email account. I tried to have them send a code to the backup email account, which I've done before, but they have not sent one - I'm assuming they're not recognize it for some reason. I've also tried to go through their protocol and answer all their ridiculous questions. Some of the ones they're asking for things that I did 20 years ago and I have no idea what credit card I used, what my Skype account password ***** or any of those things because it happened so long in the past and I'm not using it them anymore and I have upgraded my credit cards and I'm not using those either. They gave me a case number ***** a few times, then let me know that someone had looked at my account and said I had prove that I am who I am. So I tried it the third time and I went through the entire process again tried to check my answers, and they came back and said since you tried to do this 3 times wait 24 hours and try again. Is there anything you could do to help?
