hotmail account problems

  westgolf 09:59 21 Mar 2010

Hi, can someone please help. One of my hotmail accounts wont accept the password that has worked fine for many months. When I go through the procedure to correct this & enter personal question info - it asks the question in Chinese ? I have translated this - but the answer to the Chinese question wont reinstate the account password ? Any ideas please ? Many thanks.

This is an old hacking scam - why would Hotmail be asking you your security questions in Chinese - and you certainly shouldn't answer.

This link goes back 2 or 3 years, but the same hacking goes on today - and at present Hotmail is being targeted in a major way.
