My email address (an old Tiscali email from 20 yrs ago) has been hacked and I can't access it. The back-up phone number is no longer in use and I have reported this to Talk Talk three times, each time being told that I will need to wait for up to 72 hrs for a response. I received one call after the first logged incident but was unable to take the call and no return call details were left.
Since then, despite being given two further incident numbers through live chat, there has been no response at all. I'm going around in circles - how can I get this resolved as a matter of urgency? I have no account with Talk Talk, just my email address.

How good is your memory? Do you remember over the last 20 years if you previously set up password recovery for the email address with an alternate email address even if the recovery mobile number is no go? You could use the Reset your Password option. Try that to see if it comes up with the hints to any recovery options.
If not, you'll need to prove you're the registered user of the tiscali email. Double check that you've added to your Community Profile, Personal Information (Click here) your name, current address and phone numbers and then scroll down and add all of the following in the Private Notes area at the bottom of the page:
The TalkTalk Community support team will verify the user details recorded for the email address. The email expert will reply here to help with account or password recovery.
