Someone used my email to register a dropbox account

Someone used my email to register a dropbox account

Issue as in the title. Someone used my (spare) email adress to register a dropbox account.

I've gotten 2 mails from over the span of 3 days which means the account is active.

 

I just wondered if there's any way to get the account deleted on my behalf, since it's using my mail adress.

I've been searching for a way to submit a ticket for some time now, but I can't seem to find the option.

( I'm from germany, website layout might be different)

 

Thanks in Advance!

Go to www.dropbox.com/forgot and request a password reset on that email address

Get the email which has the password in

Log on to www.dropbox.com with that password

Go to www.dropbox.com/account , scroll down to the bottom and close it.
