YAhoo deactivated my account :(
I'm damn sad... i just went to (like i do every day) and signed on and recieved "invalid password" . I tried it again and recieved the same thing again.

so i tried signing in to Yahoo! Messenger... "Your account has been locked for security reasons..."

Maybe I did forget the password, I used the Forgotten Password option... Filled up the form... and This is what I get...

This Yahoo! Account Has Been Deactivated

Go to, fill out the form there to ask them why your account has been deactivated. Choose "I am receiving a "Your account has been locked" message" in the drop-down list under "4. What kind of problem are you having?" and be sure you give them all the information they ask for to have a better chance of actually hearing back from them.

I clicked on the link and there is a form there but it is a feedback form though. It asks for my name, email address and subject (general, suggestion). And then says type ur feedback here. It doesnt have any of the options u mentioned.

Also, i have 2 accounts on yahoo, and now both have been disactivated!!!
What the heck is going on?? Could it be that maybe my computer has some spyware or somethin and that somehow someone got my password and cancelled my accounts?

Only Yahoo! knows why they deactivated your accounts. Don't think any of them read these posts. Open a new email account if needed and fill out the feedback form to Yahoo!
