Hi my name is ***** ***** I am having trouble getting into my Hotmail account. I appear to be blocked for one whole month because I could not give Visa Verified some information they wanted. Any ideas how I can access my account.

Hello Jerry, I got switched around to other sites asking me to sign up for monthly subscriptions. Never got y our answer to my question and so if I don't hear from you within the next half hour I will be blocking payment of the 45 euros promised if I was satisfied with the answer. Please respond.
hi, are you unable to Access your Hotmail account?
are you getting an error message? (like, your password ***** ***** etc?)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Jerry, originally I could not remember my Microsoft password ***** so I got a code.. I was then switched to Visa Vertified and to be honest I don't know what they were looking for. At one stage they were looking for a very long code which I have no idea what that is about. Anyhow after continual tries they have now blocked my Hotmail account for ONE MONTH. I am not even sure if I can get into it after that. I am 74 years of age and completely fraustrated.
hi, what is the Hotmail account you are having problems with?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
***@******.***. I can get into all of my bank accounts etc. just not my Hotmail.account.
can you go to , what do you see? do you see the login page or your inbox?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
When I click on my Hotmail account icon, up comes Microsoft asking for my account and password ***** in fact I never get to my Hotmail account.
can you type your email and password ***** click submit, what happens?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hang on Jerry, while you are here I will pull up my Hotmail again and come back and confirm exactly what is happening now. Can you wait
yes, i will be here waiting
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
All the same. I never get any where near my Hotmail. At the end of a long detour they say again I am blocked for putting in the wrong password ***** many times. Apparently blocked for one month.

No. Gerry in fairness this conversation has been going on since 2.29 p.m. Can you unblock my account or not. Between Microsoft/Visa Verified they blocked my account so surely you can unblock it.

do you remember your password ***** login to your email?
i unblocked your email, can you try to login no
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Normally the icon takes me straight into my Hotmail account and I don't have to sign. Tried again with the password ***** it still says it is blocked.
i sent another code, did you receive it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
By the way I sign into Outlook to access my Hotmail account if the icon does not take me straight to it. Just though I would mention in case it makes a difference.
can you write here the last code that was sent to your phone ending with ...87

(###) ###-#### Jerry do you have the 25 digit recovery code?
unfortunately no. because you turned on two-step verification, we need to send another code to ...87 but since it is not working, i am searching for another solution
can you turn off your mobile phone and turn it on again(###) ###-####
let's see if you can receive the messages
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Gerry can you hang on a minute
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Jerry. I just topped up my text bundle in case that was the problem. Do not know if it will work now as I was still getting
Incoming calls. Maybe you could try again now but although I have had confirmation of receipt of my money I am not sure how long it might take if that indeed was the problem.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Jerry I told you I normally just click on my Outlook icon and it takes me straight into my Hotmail account. I have not signed into my Hotmail account in years.
i am working, i will try again
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
any luck?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Are you still there Jerry?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As I have not heard from Jerry since 4.56 p.m. and it is now 5.36 p.m. I can only assume he finishes work at 5. Just answer notified me that they have received the 45 euros for my specialist. I was under the impression that they would not claim this money until I was satisfied with the answer. I also wish to unsubscribe from this membership of upon the end of my trial period. This is to allow for a possible reply from Jerry by to-morrow morning. Otherwise I will be requesting return of my 45 euros.
