Turns out my XBOX account was linked to another EA account that I no longer had access too.  Took a bit to prove I owned it, but once unlinked everything started to work.

Wasn't easy. I tried back in 2015 and gave up at the time. This time I convinced the second person I chatted with to look into the account history, he noticed I'd changed the account email to the invalid email and he was able to send a verification email to my old address.
