I get quite a few emails on this after my posts about MSN Messenger 7.0 beta (or 7.o betta as some people call it J )
Usually the mail consists of either the password being lost or stolen, maybe forgetting or losing the secret question, or an inability to access their MSN or Hotmail account. Some people think that their account has been stolen or otherwise compromised. So here’s what you can do to get it back…
What to do if somebody has stolen your MSN account
If somebody has stolen or “hacked” your account and changed all the login details, you will need to get in touch with a support team to get it back.
Getting your account back on MSN
Have you tried to reset your Password?
If all access details have been changed with your password:
Answer ALL the profile questions
In the Error Message box Type ACCOUNT STOLEN
In the Additional Comments box tell them:
The time you last signed in successfully
A list of ALL your previous passwords
It is not possible to have your password reset if you supply incorrect information. The Passport team will take any attempt to steal passwords by this route very seriously.
Hopefully this will help you get your account back…
