So I created a gmail account back in 2009. Forgot the password, and tried the many password reset options. Now 2 years later on the password reset recovery page it does not recognize the email address as a user name in it's system.
Some background info if it helps before I forgot the password. I don't believe I sent many emails while I had the account. I may have transferred all of my contacts from my other account into this new account.
So I tried creating a new email account with this same address. It won't let me do this either.
The reason I am trying so hard to get the account back is that it is my email@example.com
My name is unique to only me, (no one else has the same name) and would like to prove my identity to get this account back. Currently I have firstname.lastname@example.org but would like to recover the address with my full first name.
Who can I contact at google to get my account back / how to go about this the right way / is this possible to recover?
