PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

I am logging into Skype through my husbands account because I CANT LOGIN to mine because someone changed my EMAIL and PASSWORD.

 

My account is jcamp720

my email was mcoiro515@gmail.com

I got an email this morning that my skype registered email has been changed to  sap511@sap511.com

I have no idea what that is... Please change it back.

I can not log in because this individual ALSO changed my password.

Is there a phone number I can call for help?  I cant find one online.

I had the same problem but i got my account back!!!!! I did it myself,and heres how! I downloaded "recuva" ,thats a software from piriform.com.......it recovers lost files on the hard disk and old files too......so i scanned this location "C:\Users\JimAndCarol\AppData\Roaming\Skype\barbrawllin" and searched for "all files" and done a deep scan......i wated around half an hour and then it showed me a list of files that were there.I was looking for an older version of the "config.xml" file that would still have my password stored in it(this files is the skype cookie)......so i found a couple of old ones but it said they were "unrecoverable" but it lets you try anyway.....so i tried that,and saed it to my hard disk......then i opened it up with notepad and compared it to the cookie that didnt have the password saved,it has something at the start saying "credentials" and a code after it then it says "credentials" again......so i copy and pasted this from the old cookie into my current skype cookie,closed it and saved it.Then i started skype up,and it had my password already wrote in the box! Can't beleive i figured this out lol,but its the only logical thing i could tink of to get my account back! So now i can change the password and change my email address and i have my account back.So if you have the same problem as me,try this,it might just work!!!
