The issue in GetHuman-wasmundc's own words
I had an error in setting up my new laptop...to access my account.**The email address entered was wasmundcheryl instead of *****@***.com**This error show up on my desk top and laptop.**Now yahoo is confused and shows both names when it should only be *****@***.com**Perhaps an error message should have come up stating no account.... and then I would have correct it.**Now order to access my account even in saving the updates it shows the "two account names for my one account".**I have to sneak in or go thru the pain of getting text verification.**TOO MANY STEPS.**WHYYYYYYY???? **It is so annoying**Please fix this or send links to me to go through some process to getting this corrected.**I use Firefox for my brouser.*** ***-***-****
