Keep in mind that Dropbox Support only works on business days, so you'll likely have to wait a few days for a response. Also, please don't post any additional personal information to this public forum, per the Community's Guidelines. I've had to edit your posts to remove your email addresses.

Hi @Ronald Hinton, thanks for messaging the Community.

 

I'm sorry to hear about this situation. Have you tried contacting the support team to look into this matter in more detail by opening an incognito/private browsing window, while not signed into your account, and accessing this link.

 

Assuming your actual email has been compromised, please enter an email that you can currently access in order to receive emails from Dropbox and respond to them.

 

Once you get a ticket ID from the automated response, please let me know the number here so I can locate it in our system!

Hello, 

 

Please change to [personal information removed per the Community's Guidelines] And I only need two licenses now, so set me up with the 2-3 minimum or whatever it is,

 

Thank you !!!

No one here can do that for you. You need to follow the link that Jay provided above and open a ticket with Support.

Hello,

 

I've spent 20 minutes looking for a way to get my [removed] account changed to [removed] and close this free account I had to create to even speak to you.  I ran out of time and space, I give up.

To be perfectly blunt, sending me to a chatbot [or to ask the community] is not customer service. It is abandonment. My "Open Ticket' is just a template page with nothing addressed to me.  Using your site is downright odd.

I see no 'ticket or automated response.'

I did the Incognito screen and logged out, I got the Tickcet screen and told them, thanks. I am on ZANAX for heart issues, sorry if I am an ass.
