UPDATE: was called by third party today and was told if I got $500 gift card all money would be returned, yeah right!
Email was hacked. Had since 2001. Contacted yahoo, asked for money to verify account. Kept saying needed money but would get it back. Contacted Yahoo again and was told I was working with a legitimate third party yahoo company. They connected to my laptop, (my mistake) and are still connected, cannot get them off until I have professionally cleaned. Contacted by my bank to confirm authorized charges! No! Third party company suppose to be terminated by yahoo but yahoo wants $500 to investigate! Yah, right! Yahoo and affiliates are thieves! Have filed police report and FTC complaint and will continue to file complaints and ratings.
