Yahoo message: "kanji27@hotmail.com" has been added to my account. Unknown address to me.?

This has happened twice. I immediately changed my password when I got the message the first time. Then my friends began to contact me saying they were getting mail from me asking for money. I thought the password change fixed the problem. Also my contacts were all deleted. Now I've gotten the message from Yahoo a second time that "kanji27@hotmail.com" has been added to my account. It seems I've been hacked all over again. What can I do? I can't seem to get in touch directly with Yahoo.

    This guy from Nigeria hacked my yahoo email. 1. Change your pw again. 2.remove kanji27@yahoomail.com from alternate list. 3. check mail forwarding which I bet is for kanji27@yahoomail.com - change it to POP, and 4. submit a form to yahoo to restore your addressbook. Yes, they can recover your addressbook from past 10 days.

    Good luck.

    You absolutely have to follow the procedure outlined by sendroiu.

    Just changing your password will not do it!
