The issue in GetHuman-mrminim's own words
A service connected to my email address (BlankMediaGame’s Town of Salem) was compromised without my knowing between December **rd and **th, ****. I had only found out after having trouble setting up a new phone to receive Yahoo mail via the preinstalled app (Not the Yahoo Mail app), only for my two often used passwords and variations of them to not work, which I then took to my old phone, as it is still connected to my Yahoo Email. I found an email describing BlankMediaGame’s recent data breach, and an email sent the day before by Twitter for password recovery, one I did not make. Frustration with logging in and the warning of a recent data breach leads me to believe that my email may have been compromised recently, and the password changed. The Yahoo email account in question is *****@***.com. Again, I do still have access to it via my old phone, but a preferred alternative would be to email a separate account I have, listed below.
GetHuman-mrminim did not yet indicate what Yahoo should do to make this right.
I have an issue with Yahoo too
