Hi I received several of the usual emails saying that the emails saying that there was a security breach and that they had the details of my account and the password and that they have control of my devices and they wanted money not to share the contents with other people but I just deleted them and ignored it. They then seemed to have changed the password on the account so my devices can no longer log in. Including my virgin media, says The entered credential or authentication information does not work or are no longer accepted by provider. Please change them. Then I tried recover passwords but it says. 


Your e-mail account [REMOVED] was disabled due to invalid credentials. Please edit the account and enter correct credentials to enable it again  
Thanks Terry
