Hello,

I think my account may have been hacked and I'm wondering if you can help me.

 It's for my old gmail account that I used for about 4 years before starting a new one. Anyways, I can't get in and when I try to reset the password the link is sent to an old hotmail account that is now closed (I dont even remember closing it, but perhaps that hotmail did since I hadnt used it in ages). So that was a fail.

After that, I tried to answered a bunch of questions for gmail to decide if they will give me access and I was denied twice! The questions are so hard for me as I havent used that account in a long time...such as ...when is the date that you signed up? That was years ago,...I have no idea other than the year. And what is the URL of the verification you were sent? How would I know this info?

I need to know another way that I can prove that I am the owner of this account. Please help!

I'm sorry, but there aren't any other ways.  If you can't do a password reset, then the only other options is the account recovery form (all the questions).  All I can suggest is you do some research and try to answer more questions, more accurately.

See the following article about how to recover a lost or compromised account:  http://gmailaccountrecovery.blogspot.com/

That's not good news. I've failed the questions 3 times already. I really am at a loss as to how I can get access to my old account. I wish we cold provide other forms of identification because it's terribly hard to remember after 8 years...

I'll see if I can get someone to check on your recovery requests.  But if you aren't providing enough information you won't be able to get the account back.  Perhaps with some research you can get more information to put on the form.

I've been informed that you have been offered and accepted prioritized support for this case.  So continue through that path.
