Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

Creating a new email would let you login but everything that you have done with your old Apple ID would be lost so it would probably do more harm than good.

What error message do you get when trying to use your Apple ID?

It sounds like you were a victim of phishing which means someone has gained access to your account and changed your password.
