  1. My wife's Microsoft Account has been hacked


    Hello, I'm new to the forum and I'm hoping someone may be able to offer some advice/guidance. It's not actually a Windows 10 settings issue but it's the closest match I could see.......


    My wife's Microsoft Account was hacked last weekend and with it we've lost (and someone else has gained) access to personal and financial information including all info on her One Drive.


    Background - albeit too late to act on them she received a number of e-mails from Microsoft indicating that her password had been reset and that some of her security info had been deleted and new info added. When she eventually saw the e-mails she attempted to log into her account but the 'hacker' has changed the account name and she now get's a message advising the Account does not exist.


    Since Sunday we have spoken with various reps from Technical support and completed a number of Account Recovery forms but unsurprisingly these have not been successful. This evening I was on the phone for 90 mins with another Tech Support Rep and although she was very patient and willing despite me being able to provide her with the e-mail address the hacker is now using on the account she didn't have the tools or knowledge to take the issue forward. She spoke with her supervisor and also Account & Billing but the only suggestion she was able to suggest was for us to complete another form in relation to scams which we've done but we are not expecting much success.



    Is there a Dept (Security?) who we can speak with and who, based on the info we can provide, interrogate their systems in order to check what we are saying is true and then immediately block the hacker from accessing the account etc. etc.


    Additionally, and until we get the original issue resolved, how do we change the Microsoft Account associated with our PC and showing in Settings Info? We can't alter it in Manage My Account (as ours no longer exists) and it gives us the option to "Verify your identity" but that's not our e-mail address (it's the hackers!)


    Any help you can offer would be very much appreciated as we are very very worried and frustrated

    :)

    Microsoft Account was hacked

    Thank you but they did not change my password and I think I know who hacked into my account. My two step verification was not turned off. I even had to use the two step process a week or so before he hacked my account. He has top secret security clearance
    and it seems is allowed to do anything. I just need to tell someone about this I guess.
