[edited email from public] @aol.com has been breached and taken over. I have not been able to receive emails since 1/19/22. I have had this email for 30 years but someone now has control. what do I do? They have used my email to solicit google play cards from anyone connected to my account. I don't know who to report to. I have emailed aol twice but mine is a free account so I don't hear from them. HELP an alternate email is [edited email from public] @gmail.com please answer me there as I don't receive on aol account.

I would suggest canceling the old e-mail altogether. This will cause you problems, and you will have to alert everyone you have contacts with. But this is the only way unless you can find whoever is causing the problem.
