Customer Question
Hi. I need help with...
Hi. I need help with my Yahoo account. I received a text that said that Yahoo allowed this other person to access my email account and the person changed the password ***** the account. How can I get my account back and make it more secure? Do I need to call the police? I just have the cell phone number of someone in another country. They were obviously able to get my cell phone number in order to text me. Please help. Thank you .
