This answer was rated:

I have Thunderbird email. Couple of days ago I received an email from Google asking if I knew two people. I knew one of them so I followed it through doing what was instructed. This involved Google sending me by mobile phone a number for id purposes and asking me to insert a password. I did this. As a consequence, I now cannot get my emails up and I have been advised this was a scam. Bearing in mind, I am not receiving my emails can you contact me either on the landline (**********) or mobile (**********) as soon as possible. Many thanks. Val **********
Hi there Val and welcomeThis was a scam so we will need to try to get you back into your account.Please note, you can communicate with me here, on this web page, access to emails is not needed.As the first step, can you tell me please what the exact message is you get when you try to sign in?
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.Thanks,Richard

Where will it be - it isnt on Desktop and I don't know where to look? Please bear in mind that I haven't got a clue about any technical things.
Its in your list of programs, so where you find all your programs and run these. And there is an icon on the desktop with the work teamviewer
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have been right through Desktop and also those icons when you press Start Button and there is absolutely nothing there.
ok then you have not installed it.... so the initial instructions where not done, or not done correctly.We will do this another way as it may be easier for you.What is the email address with the problem?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** last password ***** remember?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I haven't the faintest idea - as far as I can remember I have never had to use a password ***** Thunderbird and we have been using it for a number of years now. Sorry for being useless.
