Yahoo account temporarily locked and goes to verizon website

I have been unable to get into my yahoo email account for 2 weeks.  It states it is temporarily locked and redirects me to the verizon website to change my password.

I answer the security questions but since I no longer have a verizon account which was phone and internet it does not recognize the user or zipcode I am entering to change the password.  Other posts have told me to call customer service but they keep disconnecting me because they are not recognizing my phone number since I no longer have my verizon account.  I also don't remember my verizon email account as I believe they were linked but always used the yahoo one instead.  I had to create this forum account to hopefully get my account resolved.  I have seen posts of others having the same problem so please assist.  Thank you.
