    I guess I was hacked. I changed my password quickly but I guess it was compromised to before I figured out how to find the code I was sent. I had a problem with proving my identity because I am not computer literate and I didn't quite understand what I was told to do. I chose to identify photos, unfortunately they were Bingo Blitz friends and I could not tell who they were. I could not text because I don't have a cell phone, and I didn't know what my browser was, I do now. When I tried to log in again I was blocked. What do I do. I don't know where to find help or what kind.
