want to cancel a account

An old account I had years ago (and I never deleted) has suddenly started being active.  I am being asked to verify accounts with Amazon and Lyft.  I am being Hacked I guess.  I asked Virgin media to delete the account.  They said they couldn't do so as they passed all the accounts on to Talk talk.  Talk Talk cannot find any trace of my account.  I can't access this old account, but somebody is using it and this makes me very worried.  I am 76, please can someone help me?

Re: want to cancel a account

Yet another nonsense response from first line support.  Talk Talk have never had any control over email accounts.  Lost count of the number of times this has been referred to the @ModTeam 

They will be able to assign this to one of the forum team to contact you via this forum to ensure the account is deleted.

I am a VM customer. There are no guarantees that my advice will work.
