Solution 1

Ok, one of the ways:
1. If user selects for 'forgot password', ask him for the registered email id
2. send an email to that email id with a link of setting up new password with encrypted querystring to make sure who it is sent to
3. if it was real user and he forgot password, he will get your email in his registered email id inbox
4. Once he visits the link, you know the person who is trying to set password, do it.
5. Once the link is used, destroy the querystring related such that the same link cannot be used again.

Try out!
