Phone them in the UK on 0203 901 7000
Answer I do not have a code when asked
When asked do you have an account, say yes.
Press 1 on your phone pad when asked anything else. After doing this 5 times, you get to speak to a human. (unless it's Covid-19 season in which case they just hangup.)
They changed, try saying "human help" or don't bother calling, as they haven't had anyone to answer calls for months, the multi-billion $ company hasn't manged to work out how they can answer the phone.
