If you think the account is locked but it is not:

  • Unlock your account

If an account is not locked:

  • Transfer or burn all tokens except XLMs
  • Remove all trustlines
  • Use the merge operation to transfer the remaining XLMs into another account

If an account is locked:

  • Perform a 51% attack to manipulate the ledger or convince the stellar team and validators to implement an unlock operation.
