Email account locked

Hi. I’m currently fuming with the service provided in resolving this issue ( which is still not resolved). Since Monday my email account hasn’t been available and as this is a vital communication tool then every day it’s not available creates major issues. I’ve circumvented this by opening a gmail account but this only partially helps. On Monday I was told it was a password reset issue ( technician Francis- strange how many English names work in the call centres) this didn’t work. Next call on Tuesday ( Gilman the technician this time) was told needed passing to back room staff and would definitely resolve within 24 hrs - didn’t !!! Next call (Atisha) advised that it was a security lock of the account as potential suspicious spam like activity - this would take 5 working days to clear. As unhappy with loss of emails for this time ask to speak to a Manager- call back promised within 24 to 48 hours - never materialised. Next call (technician called Sash) also to put in a message to IT section but warned it could be another 5 days at least. Sash supposedly arranged for a call back by a Manager ( Dave!!!) within next half hour - 2 hours later still not taken place. What is going on Virgin - customer service here total rubbish and people seemingly saying almost anything to get you off the line. If there’s a prob with the email account why not advise me as such and give clear / speedy deadlines for resolution. Trying to speak to anyone at other than a basic level is seemingly impossible - during one conversation was advised that a number of “help” links could be emailed to me to consider. Problem here pointed out to technician was that a. Email account was locked so couldnt be accessed b. Virgin had locked the account !! At wits end here !!!
