The issue in GetHuman-lindakho's own words
I'm trying to access my new account but am locked in the phone number verification screen which is displaying a number which is not mine. I have tried to use the number I registered with to access account recovery but it is not working. It is possible something was messed up since I registered with a Ugandan phone, but this shouldn't have made the recovery number a US-based number. Since I cannot access my email I am including my student's email below who can share info in an emergency
GetHuman-lindakho did not yet indicate what Yahoo should do to make this right.
