Thank you

When you do not have access to your alternate email address and cannot verify by answering the security questions you need to fill out a special form.

This form will have you provide some information about your account as well as a new alternate email address.

Access the form at the following link:

Once on that page choose Hacked Accounts, Unable to verify secret question next Click Call Me.

Call the number provided (it is specific to you)

Ultimately you will need to verify that this is your account on the phone, or else you will not be able to get back in. Unfortunately since the internet can be a very dishonest place yahoo is unable to take anyone on their word.

If you get confused or need help during any part of the process please do not hesitate to reply to me and let me know so I can further assist. Most importantly you must provide them with an email address that they can contact you at under where it says alternate email address.

I would kindly ask you to remember when you are asked to rate my service you are rating me personally. You are not rating Yahoo or their procedures or your frustration with the situation which I know is difficult.
