  • Question

  • My account has been compromised, I am locked out of it. They are sending emails to my friends, family, workplaces and clients asking for money and that I am stuck in England. I have put in a work ticket, called Microsoft and was told that because it is a free account, there is not live help. I do not care how poorly Microsoft feels that "free" customers deserve to be treated, goodness knows that I haven't spent enough money just owning the software, but I do believe there is an obligation to the people being solicited. I can rebuild my 15 year email account, but the nice elderly friend of mine WHO WENT TO A BANK YESTERDAY TO GET A LOAN TO WIRE THIS JERK should have some protection by me being able to reach a LIVE PERSON to help me shut down the account.

    I have spent hours trying to go through the steps trying to reset the account and putting in a work ticket, I didn't realize that I would have to take a vacation day to deal with matters such as this.

    I am very disappointed and disgusted.
