I don't use AIM so I'm not aware of how things are done.  Is your AIM
name "stolen" in the sense that someone else was able to figure out your
password, got into your account, and changed the password so that you
can no longer get in?  If the thief isn't that smart and hasn't changed
the account's email address, you can always do a password reset via the
AIM web site.
