So I got scammed like a fool into giving up UA tracking I.D. Is there a way I can get it changed? Thanks for any reply and help!

Hi,

 

The UA-ID cannot be changed, once you create the property, the tracking ID is assigned to it permanently.

Is it possible to delete it and remake it? What are the downsides to this?
Site is fairly new so I'm not too concerned about losing tracking data for
a couple of months..

You can create a new property if it's not a problem for you to lose the historical data. It's even better to have a property ID ending in number other than -1, since spammers mostly target -1 properties. Let me know if you have more questions.
