  • can't log into my account because they changed my password and my security questions.  Hotmail does not have a live person to talk to in regards to this and it can take anywhere from 24-48 hours for them to reply.  In the meantime I had to contact the FBI because of the extortion and these thieves have access to my saved folders.  They have been using information to verify that they are me.  In order for a live MSN employee to assist you it must be a paid account.
