    Hey guys i really some help. Someone changed my yahoo search marketing account and now i can't log in. I'm really worried because i have $70 in the account and also because the account is connected with my credit card and my PayPal account. Anyway I'm really freaking and i don't know what to do or how to contact yahoo support desk because i can't even log in to my account. Here is the email of the person i believe hacked my account saurabhvashist40@yahoo.com. Btw i know it's this guy/gal because i received an email from yahoo saying that the email address they have on their file for my account is saurabhvashist40@yahoo.com. I would really appreciate your help.:confused::worried:

    yes contact yahoo asap.

    worst case get with your bank and credit card and let them know you are not authorizing transactions from that source until further notice.

    All credit card fraud depts should be open 24/7. What im concerned about is paypal, they're not so good in recovering funds.

    Thanks for your help. I contacted my bank this morning and canceled my card. I also contacted paypal and they said they would be on a lookout for any suspicious transaction from my account and that they will cancel the account today. My only problem right now is how to contact yahoo and alert them about the hack. I tried to google their help desk contact number and email. And so far i haven't been successful. So if there is anyone out there who know their contact detail please sent it. Thx in advance.

    the first step will be blocking your credit card and giving a call to paypal and blocking all the funds.
