In the event that you got a suspicious Facebook message from your dead granny hoping to educate you regarding an extraordinary new money making opportunity, you’d report the fake record to Facebook, wouldn’t you? That is actually what numerous Facebook clients said they did well before the organization apparently punished them for doing as such.
The # FacebookLockout trend has gained momentum on Twitter among people locked out of their Facebook account for fraudsters or imposting site profiles.
Cory Comer, marketing director for RateLinx Group, has been shut out for a week without Facebook assistance. Furthermore, since its account is the only private profile linked to the Facebook page of RateLinkx, no one in the company may reach the website.
“I had my old friend adding me as a friend on Facebook. After I accepted is friend request, he contacted me through Messenger and asked me to give him cash,” Comer said. “You’re not Dave. ‘ I was shut out of my account just a couple of hours later.”
Comer has been one of the main voices on the Twitter hashtag, attempting to bring issues to light. He says he’s addressed Facebook users who have been bolted out of their Facebook accounts now for a month. Almost all follow the same pattern: shortly after reporting a fake Facebook account, they all were locked out.
