    Default Locked out of Hotmail

    I recently sent email to many friends announcing I have an item for sale. The next day Hotmail sent a notice saying it looks as if another person is using my account. I do not have a MS Pin and have already provided the personal information they request to verify my account. I was then told it would take 24 hours for them to let me know if I provided enough information. How can I open my Hotmail now?
