I done all the obvious things like change your password. I am getting emails to say I have changed my account passwords on various apps and sites when I try and change the passwords whoever is doing it has set up mobile verification so I can not access anything. I have phoned virgin who tell me I need to change my password I have already done this and it is still happening
The issue is no longer with your re-secured Virgin Media email account but with the services it is linked with. Unfortunately with the miscreants having enable multifactor authentication on those accounts recover may prove difficult. Try contacting the site / app operators for further advice using the email address you registered with them.
Out of curiosity, are you able to name one of the sites affected by this issue?

I am sure you have followed all the advice the link VIP 用心棒 gave in his post but many people think that merely changing the password is enough to secure their VM email account......believe me it isn't. 😮
For example, unless you have also changed your security questions and answers in your 'My Virgin Media' account the hacker may well have enough information to still be able to take over your account and effectively lock you out completely.
Also, you need to check that the hacker has not made changes to your VM Webmail account such a setting up rules to divert certain incoming emails to another email address. Those changes may not be obvious unless you actually check the settings in your Webmail account.
Thanks for your post on our Community Forums Davehob, and a very warm welcome to you!
I'm terribly sorry to hear of the hacking of the E-Mail account, can you please confirm if you're the account holder for the Media account that the E-mail address is attached to?
If you are, I can seek to change the memorable word on the primary E-Mail account that will hopefully stop the hacker from locking you out. If this is a secondary E-Mail account, the memorable word change will be for the self-care account, which will allow you to manage the secondary E-Mail accounts
