    If you can still access your old ID with the Old Email, On the Apple Website you can change it, Here is a Guide: http://adf.ly/2DUWV

    If you can't access it, You should contact Apple ASAP and close your Credit Cars incase the Hacker tries to buy stuff with your Apple ID, Because your Credit card information is stored there.

    As Mutchy says your priority is to get the apple account closed to protect your details.

    This is one reason why I dont store my card details on there.
    I prefer to redeem itunes vouchers so in that way if this happened they would only have access to a small amount of money, and not my bank balance.

    Creating a new apple id is easy enough to do.
