When I enter my email address and password, i get "It looks like someone else is using your email account". Following instructions to recover doesn't work.

Is this when you are trying to download an app or what are you doing when you get the error message?

Just making sure but we are still talking about your Apple Id correct?

Let me know,

Thank You, Dan
