Hi Scott, I just tried to log in again with my old password, didn't work. So I changed to a new password and tried again with my email address, and all I see is the almost empty Evernote account. So it's definitely a big bug. So could you please help me to restore my old notes since you say this should not have been possible.
Can you for instance see if there is an old account with my email address (same as in the forum account) and merge the two accounts with the old notes in it? The old account is several years, the new one was accidentally created on September 13 this year. Best regards.
