The issue in GetHuman-yzbob's own words
yzbob* was my account and it has been taken over by russian hackers. How were they able to change my email address without me getting a notification to my email that it had been changed?? Anyway... i don't mind whether you delete the account completely or whether you give me back my access but i wont have someone impersonating me online so I will continue to pursue this until i get a resolution. **you make it very difficult to resolve issue like this, your support site should incorporate a better solution to this type of issue. its obvious from google searching that it happens a lot and there are many frustrated people with the same issue.**Thanks for your assistance, hope to hear from you soon. **Bobby.
