    Guys,

    I have a question about all these various "eMail Password Recovery Websites"

    Basically you give them any email address and some money, and they supply you with a password for that eMail address.

    Are all these basically fraud?

    As in they will most likely take your money and you will never hear from them again?

    Anyone have any knowledge about these websites?

    If what they do isn't fraud, what you do abslutely is. It's the same either way. Why do you want to get the passwords of other e-mail IDs?

    Why are you accusing me of fraud?

    I actually have an email address I created back in 2000 when I was in school and forgot the password.

    I would like to get it back.

    And I think you have not answered my question. I want to know is how likely is it that they will actually deliver my account password after I pay them.

    Pretty strange man.

    Instead of contacting your email provider why do you think that these email password recovery can help you ? You will be scammed for sure if you deal with them.

    Yes, thats what I was thinking.

    I contacted Hotmail already. But they asked me to fill out a form with a bunch of questions. Like what were the last emails about in the inbox. But I did not use it for long time so I probably gave incorrect answers.

    They did not give me the password.

    I just want that account now because it has a very "hard to get" unique name.

    So would be good to get it back again.

    But I think I will probably give up as I am worried about paying and them scamming me.
