      I am more curious "HOW" your HubPages account was hacked? It is on HubPages servers. hmm

        Maybe changing password and associated email address would suffice, if the Original Poster still has access.

    To delete your account send an email with the subject "close my account" in the subject line and the username of the account you want closed in the message. (That keeps the one you want safe) Make sure you send the email from the address you used to sign up with.

      Good point, provided that email account has not been hacked. Which is why I didn't want to get into that aspect.

        hmm..I suppose if it was sent from a different mail but with the account name and an explaination, it would be fine.

        When I had to delete my first account I sent it from the wrong address, and Maddie sent me an email to my hubpages associated address to make sure I had requested the closure. I had already figured out my mistake and sent a proper request, so the account was closed by the time I got the email. So sending it from a different address most likely will work, just takes a bit longer.
