Instead, GetHuman846679 will need to dig through the advice provided by Yahoo, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman846679 can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman846679's own words
My e-mail account was hacked and a message sent from my daughter, supposedly, demanding money for her autistic child to get services. My daughter said my account was hacked and I changed my password. Low and behold, I just received another demand for money and my daughter, an IT person, said they must have opened a fake account in her name with a spelling variation to harrass me for money. I was suspicious from the start because my daughter never demands funds to be transferred to a Wells Fargo account and the e-mail was very poorly written. I want the e-mails to stop. The person involved said to transfer funds to Minnie Mitchell, routine * *********, acct. * ********** at Wells Fargo. Hopefully, these hackers will be apprehended and stopped from victimizing people by using their children's e-mail accounts by changing one character in the address which isn't always noticeable. I didn't immediately notice and was almost taken in as many seniors are when it comes to helping their children. Fortunately, I was suspicious from the onset, but other people are not.
