    My Facebook account has been hacked and being controlled by someone else. I was receiving multiple post about Facebook Recovery so I reported some as spam since then my Facebook page is frozen. I was receiving many posts from several sites, not to my interest. I have no profile or friends shown. Please stop this intruder!

    I had my account hacked and now I'm blocked out because they chose to change my email address which I used when I signed up to Facebook in 2008. It's wrong. Why won't anyone help

      Agreed same here. I was hacked friends reported it. I was able to get into my account once. After an hour it told me 8 needed to re input my password, that I just changed and it told me my password was wrong. Never again could I get into my account. They had it up and running for over a year. And nobody did a d**n thing. I felt so violated not only for myself but all they did to my contacts. Some contacts were only in my messanger and Facebook. So of which I was doing business. They stole them, my pictures. Yet Nobody did a d**n thing. Why? Who is protecting us? Nobody is. It's a crime and I just don't understand why nobody does anything about it. Sorry it was one of the most invading, flusterating, helpless feeling ever. No I did not open another. I am not on social media at all. I miss my groups, my thousands of pictures, my family. And that's where your left Alone to "TRY"

      to figure it out, retrieve it blah blah.

    I can not reset my password because I can not access the email address associated with my account.

    Email :... - let me know if you can help. Looking forward.

    I get these emails on a daily basis, but I find them on the Facebook security page under "See recent emails from Facebook" So how can they be a scam?

  • August 30, 2020 at 9:23 AM by an anonymous user from: Tyler, Texas, United States

    I get these emails about 2 times a day. Luckily I dont have a facebook page so the scam was easy to spot

  • July 2, 2020 at 6:03 PM by an anonymous user from: Montgomery, Alabama, United States

    Just received this in my email. I definitely didn't request a change.

    I received a similar message saying someone tried to log in to my account. It had buttons to report the user or say that it's me, but there were many "Â"s scattered about the email. These addresses were included: us@lolaca.club, reach@lolaa.site, rex@contacthouse.website, contact@facebksupport.website

    I just received this message and I do not and never have had a facebook account. Very weird. Fortunately I am running Linux so it is unlikely anyone will have been able to access my system.
