Apparently the entire Apple tech support team is on vacation today?
Seems like it would behoove them to let me talk to a human as soon as possible.
Earlier I got a message about my Apple ID being linked to an iPhone and iCloud, neither of which are things I use. This whole ID is so old and abandoned that I doubt it even has valid credit card attached. Are there any other risks I should be looking for with this?
PayPal and Dreamhost have also not replied to requests that I have submitted via forms or real support addresses. Not. Even. Replied.
I’m pretty sure the above is my hacker’s email address! I found it in my Yahoo account. Now what????
I am powerless to stop this, apparently.

Who is “manI” (@ericpual777) and why is he following and tweeting at my hacker? Any connection?
Thanks to all of you who are trying to contact the human beings that you personally know at Twitter.
This afternoon I got a response form someone named Verenski to my request submitted last night via https://support.twitter.com/forms/signin, but all it said was:
I’ve just replied to your other request. Please respond to that other email.
But I didn’t get any other reply! Is the hacker in my Gmail deleting messages? Or did they contact Twitter themselves to make them look legit?
I responded saying I had no other reply from them, but now I imagine I have to wait hours for another response. I wonder if they would be able to call me on the phone?
Someone’s up in my Yahoo account RIGHT NOW, and i can’t do anything about it.
I’m starting to think this problem goes back before yesterday. It was on Saturday that I originally noticed that my web site at lotusmedia.org was messed up. It’s a WordPress site and it was failing to connect to the database.
I tried updating the WP software from my Dreamhost control panel, as this sometimes straightens things out, but it made no difference. Dreamhost is the server for my website, but it’s also the domain name server for lotusmedia.org and several other domains that I own.
I can’t log in to Dreamhost now, but I did verify that the domain name registration hasn’t changed at least. I’m wondering if the hackers have accessed my email@example.com address, which currently goes right into my Gmail account. I’m still getting messages sent to that address, but maybe they are too!
