Dude, I have no advice for you, but I just wanted you to know that I feel pretty bad for you. I guess at this point I can only hope that all of your teams were in last place. Out of curiosity, do you suspect anyone in any of your leagues?

I really dont think nebody in my leagues has any remote idea on how to hack, unless it was a public league. I am gonna try calling Yahoo tomorrow and hopefully i will be able to restore it.

Sorry to hear about that. I'd just do what you're doing right now...trying to contact Yahoo!.

Calling yahoo...

That's probably going to be a waste of your time. Huge internet company doesn't care about 1 person playing a free fantasy football league.

just create a new account and have the commissioner of your leagues make that account the new owner.

Alright I had my yahoo account hacked about a month ago. Heres what you have to do...

First check your alternate e-mail account that you used when you created your account to see what they changed the password to.

Second use the change password utility every 12 hours, and spam it until it says your account is locked. This prevents the hacker from doing anything with your account.

Third call yahoo, (408) 349-3300 it took me about 15 minutes to find that number.

Fourth use the e-mail contact utility, as long as you have all the information that you used when you CREATED your yahoo account you will be able to recover it eventually.

Yahoo and Amazon are good at keeping phone numbers hidden.
