Hello,

I tried logging into my hotmail account and it said "someone else could be using this account" or something blabla. I tried resetting the password to an alternate email but it comes up with si*******@yaho.ie (I have no idea what that is) so I tried filling out as much info as I could about the account to recover it but it said I didn't fill in enough info and that I should try again. I've tried loads of times. Basically I really need to get this account back because it is the email linked to my facebook. I forgot my password for facebook and to reset it, it goes to this email. Can someone help please?

Greetings,

It seems that your account was hacked. Unfortunately Hotmail is not secured and one should never save data on Hotmail servers without backing it up.

Please follow the procedure given in the following tip and recover your account:

Hotmail has now been replaced by Outlook so Hotmail is now Outlook and your Hotmail account should work in Outlook.

See if this page will help you recover your account:

Also, I suspect that your computer is not safe against intrusions.
