I got locked out of my email after someone in Houston, Texas hacked into it. I called a number for Yahoo! that no one else can seem to find and they told me that I had to pay $100 because my Yahoo! server had been compromised. I use my cell phone for my email and I am fairly confident that I am not responsible for Yahoo!'s email server. Any ideas on what I can do, because I am getting nowhere with Yahoo!?

    Sounds like a scam to me. – ale Oct 15 '15 at 18:00

Yahoo is not trying to charge you $100 to recover your account. That's a scammer, possibly the person(s) who hacked your account in the first place.

To recover your Yahoo account, click the link at the Yahoo login page that says "Can't access your account?". Then follow the instructions.
