Help with my Yahoo issue
GetHuman-kanttaki's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Yahoo doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-kanttaki 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 GetHuman-kanttaki can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-kanttaki's own words
I received an account key from yahoo and I don’t have an account with you. I called a customer support number and “did” get a human (who spoke very poor English) and asked him why I was receiving this code. He asked me for the code and I gave it to him. He proceeded to tell me that it would cost me $*** to resolve the issue. I knew right away that couldn’t be right, and told him just to make sure that I DO NOT HAVE SN ACCOUNT WITH YOU! My daughter is does have an account with you and is trying to resolve a problem she is having with her account. I told her about the “odd” text that I received, and she told me that I had played into the hands of a hacker! I am not all that tech savvy about this sort of thing. What can I do to make sure someone has not opened a fraudulent account in my name. I do not have nor want a Yahoo account. Please help!
GetHuman-kanttaki did not yet indicate what Yahoo should do to make this right.
