How do I stop someone from creating Blackberry IDs on my email address?

Hi there,


Could you please advise me how to stop a certain person from repeatedly creating a Blackberry ID on my email address?


My email account is not compromised and this person does not have access to my email. However, she keeps entering my email left and right (not just at blackberry). I keep deleting the IDs as I see emails about them, but sometimes I miss one.


I assume the IDs I miss stay unconfirmed, but it resulted in me getting a Blackberry World purchase receipt today. Anything I can do about this, besides deleting once again? I do not own a private berry (just an enterprise one through work) and therefore do not have my own ID registered.


Thanks for your help!


Kind regards,

Re: How do I stop someone from creating Blackberry IDs on my email address?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Nope...there is nothing you can really do. Anyone can create a BB ID using any email address that is not already in use within the BBID system, but if it's never validated (which requires receipt of the email), then it cannot be used. I'm surprised by the purchase receipt you say you got, though...that's a bit odd (are you sure it wasn't a "pre-authorization" from PayPal rather than an actual purchase receipt?)...they should not have been able to make any purchases without having confirmed the original creation of the BBID account, which would require that email.

In any event, I recommend you keep cancelling them. Actually, in between times (e.g., when you've cancelled it but the person has not yet re-created it), you can create the BB ID yourself using your credentials...then the person will never again be able to use that email address for a BBID.

Just to be sure, I'd also recommend that you change your email account password...just in case...

Good luck!

I guess someone doesn't know their email address.


I don't know how you can keep someone's fingers from mistyping. It's gonna happen.


You can keep deleting and denying it.
