This same thing happened to me! I have called 4 times and they keep sending me to other departments and then tell me someone will call me within 24 hours. No one has called me and the hacker's number is still listed and he gets a text everytime I try to change my password. He also now has my phone number and has called and texted me saying I have to send him money to get my two-step verification code number. Were you ever able to resolve this issue and if so how??
Solved! Go to Solution.

I found out on the 24th that someone hacked my account and set up the 2-step verification code using his phone number. He then proceeded to call me and text me telling me if I don't cashapp him money, I will never be able to access my account again because I will need the 2-step verification code and only he has it. So far he has been absolutely right because I can't get anyone at Best Buy to help me. I assumed this would be a quick fix by calling best buy and figured they would take hacking accounts very seriously. Unfortunately I have called 4 times and live chatted multiple times and nothing has come of it. The guy's number is still connected through the 2-step verificiation. Every time I have called they act like they know nothing about it and this is the first time I have called, but it isn't. I have been told multiple times it would be resolved within 24 hours and I would receive a phone call telling me that. I of course have heard nothing. I need someone to talk this seriously and help me resolve the issue PLEASE!

No. I did email Daysha my information yesterday so hopefully it will get somewhere but I haven't heard anything back yet.

Oh wait I was wrong she did reply. She said she is setting up a new account.

Did you ever get the problem fixed? They merged my account so the hacker is off it. Daysha was very helpful. I also had filed something with the BBB to have it resolved and received a call from the corporate team to fix it if it hadn't already been. You might try that if nothing else works.
