Please also include the following information in your post:


  1. When was the account renamed? (Estimated Date and Time)

    Note: If you are unsure if you indeed renamed your account or just added an alias, you can refer to these links:

  2. Did the data loss occur right after renaming or was the data still there for a brief time?

  3. Did you have issues logging in before noticing data loss – did you have to reset his/her password?

  4. Did you click on any link before the issue occurred? \

  5. Did you try to close/deactivate the account before the issue occurred?

  6. Did you have issues logging in before or after renaming your account?

  7. When was the last time you logged into your account?
