You may need to contact Apple directly regarding these specific accounts, but we can provide some general guidance for you here. Hopefully, a new, completely separate Apple ID account was created for you (when you said you lost your pictures). If you have your own Apple ID account, you will want to change the password for it.
To create a new ID you have to use an email address other than an iCloud one - such as a free Yahoo or GMail one.
