Way in – 1:
Click the ‘Forget your password’ button. Eventhough this has the least chance, if the hacker hasn’t changed the security question and secondary email- Then you can directly get to your account. You just want to answer the security question or the password will be mailed to your secondary email account
Way in -!! :
Since most of all hackers will change the security question and secondary email as their first step, the only way in front of you is to contact the customer care directly. You may provide a well written email along with most of all details attached with it. Rather than sending a mail directly, it will be more effective if you could go through their ‘contact us’ form or such pages that provide assistance for those who lose their accounts hacked.
For eg: In gmail, it’s https://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=acc_reco&ara=2&ctx=acc_reco&rd=1
In yahoo, i think there is no such form but you can contact them directly. They are so helpful and personally, i got one of my account which was hacked, from them. I just mailed them by atttaching most of the details about my account includeing
- The emails i was getting the most mails from
- My previous security question’
- My previous secondary email address
- My mobile number
- My flicker profile
- My facebook profile (just to show them i m real 🙂 )
- The approx. date when i created the mail
