Hi J03anderson1384

Thank you for your post.

We're really sorry to hear that your account has become compromised and you have been receiving emails from an attacker. We know how concerning this must be.

We really want to help, however firstly, can you please confirm if you are still an active customer with us and if the affected email account is the primary email account linked? If so, we are unable to delete primary email accounts on active accounts with us, but we can change the password and arrange for the account to be locked so no one has access.

We do have some information available here on what steps to take if your account has been hacked and preventative steps you can take. We'd recommend taking a look whilst we help you through this.
