How do I delete a hacked Yahoo! email account. I did try to delete the account, but since the hackers have changed the passwords, I don't know what the current password is. I also want to block this yahoo email account and 2 other email accounts that the Hackers created.

You're posting to the Firefox support forum. Firefox is a web browser and doesn't handle your emails.

I can assure you nobody answering questions here is interested in your new email address. Posting your email address to a public forum will potentially expose you to even more spam and attack.

You'll need to work with Yahoo to either recover your password or have your account locked or deleted.

You probably would have been better off by simply deleting the message sent to you by the 'enterprising person in Nigeria'.

I've tried that many times, without success. I am going to close down that entire account,.
