So I tried to log into my Yahoo! account the other day and it told me my password was wrong. I checked my alternate email address to find an email from Yahoo! thanking me for changing my password. I never changed it!
Anyway. Yahoo! are the most useless bunch of muppets. After exchanging emails with them for over a week they now have requested that I post them a copy of my driving license before they will even begin to investigate.
And in the meantime, someone else is using my email!
The thing with Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail and such accounts is it's apparently easy for people in the know to get into them. On a football website my brother goes to, the admin was so concerned about one his contributors who seemingly went 'missing' and didn't return emails, that he paid someone £50 to get into his email account and take a snapshot to see if they've still been using email recently - ie they're not dead. If cunts want your free email account, they can do it. I don't even know if any of my free email accounts have alternative addressses, although truth be told I don't use any of them anyway, they're just relics from the past where a few hundred spam mails turn up occasionally.
