Old email address hacked

Joining in

As many on here have had, an old email has been hacked. Spam/ blackmail emails have been sent  and received by the address and it appears the hacker has changed the password. I contacted customer services via phone and was told that as I don't have the account number associated with it they cannot help, but I haven't been a customer for the best part of 10 years and don't have record of it. Any help deleting it / shutting it down would be greatly appreciated.

Hi swestwood,

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community.

Sorry to hear about the compromised email, as you don't have an active account we may be limited in terms of retrieving the email.

However so we can investigate further I've dropped you a PM.

The message will appear within the purple envelope icon.



Thanks for the reply, I have replied to your pm. I have zero interest in retrieving the mail ox and would like for it to be deleted or removed in its entirety if at all possible. Thanks
