Recovering a hijacked Google Account
My phone and wallet were stolen a few weeks back. The people who did this have been quite sophisticated and broken multiple layers of security. At this point I have been able to shore things up and put blocks to prevent further identity theft issues.

Unfortunately, they were able to hijack my Google account and change all recovery information. At this point I really don't care about the email address, but I do have tax information in Google Drive.

I have followed the instructions on the Google account recovery page and tried to do everything they suggest multiple times. At this point I wish I could at least get the account completely frozen.

Has anyone on here had success recovering a fully hijacked account?

once you disassociate the account with the stolen device, reset password, clear any autoforwards, and reset recovery details it should be "recovered"

Maybe you could try and get it touch with Google? It's worth a shot
