Hello Ellana,

I suggest you contact the yahoo support team about this issue.They are the only ones who can help you reset your password. You can reach them by clicking on the below link:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/general-01.html;_ylt=AlqzDfYCGCgyJryKVGvuqL9C1CN4?from_url=http%3A%2F%2Fhelp.yahoo.com%2Fl%2Fus%2Fyahoo%2Fedit%2F&last_url=http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/edit/index.html

Make sure you use an alternate email id to contact them since you aren't able to login to your yahoo email account.

After you get your password issue fixed, make sure the password you create again contains some special characters like #@$& etc..also some capital letters.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for using fixya!

Someone is using my yahoo messenger name and acting like they are me and i dont know who or how they got it . How can i find out who it is and stop them?


You may not be able to find out who it is but as a precautionary measure, immediately change your password to something stronger with a combination of alpha numeric characters and symbols like * (asterisk) or $ (dollar sign). It will be harder for the hackers to hack your password and change your account.

Appears your account has been hacked
Go to yahoo main page and in the search box write DELETE YAHOO ACCOUNT. Press ener. You will get number of websites from yahoo informing you about deleting the account. Click on the on which meets your requirement. Also go through the security policy. OR BETTER You can keep your accounts but change the passwords. Suggested that you change passwords every 15 days so the hacker does not get access to your account. Also remove the auto log in feature.

My ID is hacked


The best solution would be to remove all your private information.
Delete it or forward it to another account. You can create a new account to transfer this info.

After you have done this, stop using the account.
If possible close the hacked account.

Preventing further attacks:

In the new account you have created and transferred your data from the old account, always change your password, or set a password with both lower and upper case, the password should also contain numbers.
For example "daNy47Q"

Most hackers use key loggers to hack into user accounts, so when entering your password, do not enter the password in the order it appears. for example, if your password is "john" type jhon, then erase then type the password again in the right way "john".
This will confuse the hackers, and will keep access to your account safe.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Some one hack my account now i cant access, b coz hacker chained my messenger id and other things, how can i access & get current password?


Do you really feel someone can hack your account just like that now way, unless he has a hunch about your passwords? One hope is if That person has not changed the secret questions and their response.try to check that once..less we will try something else....I solved the same earlier that's why I am saying this.

Please try again a little bit later . (81003005)


I had the same exact problem and I solved it myself. This error will also display if you had changed your password recently.To fix it, you simply enter your new password in. Your Yahoo! Messenger will then be able to login again. Note: This will only work if you have the "Remember my ID & Password" checked. If not, then it could be that you're entering your password in wrong or something. Another thought is that maybe your account got hacked and the hacker had changed the password on you.
