"Maxi's Facebook Account - Hacked" Update

by - Thursday, January 21, 2010

After getting help from my friends, I (we are am ) am able to finally fix everything.

I contacted Facebook's help center and told them about my FB account problem, informed them that I am the real owner of the Mary Anne Velasco FB account and that my e-mail is maryannemax@yahoo.com, etc. I was given procedures to follow to prove that I really own it:
  • FB provided me a security code
  • FB sent me a link to follow
  • I was asked to answer a set of questions (I guess 7 total)
  • I was also asked to identify the people on the photos FB provided (people on my friends' list)
  • after answering most of them right, FB sent me a reset code
  • sent me another link to follow
  • and finally was able to reset my password and retrieve my e-mail add.
That was tough especially the photo questions. Worst part was when I needed to identify who got tagged on certain baby photos. I was like, "Whose baby is this?" I encountered two of that and really really prayed that I guessed them right. Got one wrong guess but well, I was allowed to make two mistakes anyway so FB still considered my request of fixing my account.

Oh my... To all my friends Samme, David, GG, Mariuca, LJ, Trelms, Colin, Nigel Babu who helped me out and somehow tried to uplift my mood in any way, thank you very very very much!

And yes next time --- I will be really really careful.

  15. Not sure though. But I was given so many questions FB was at first not recognizing my email add which made my password resetting difficult. Unless FB accepts my email, it's the only time I will be able to have my password reset.

    Long process, too much stress but at least, I got my account back. :)

  16. Oh my. I am sure you will not want to have your account hacked. It was scary for sure. Yup. Now you know what to do if ever (I hope not) your account gets hacked.

    You take care, too Bill. Hugs!

  38. Oh, so sorry you had to go through all that, Maxi... that happened to my Friendster account too, luckily there's not a lot of personal stuff I put there. When I took back the account I promptly erased it and jumped to Facebook... I guess it happens everywhere you go now...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I do not have lots of personal stuff in my FB account. But I do have loads of photos there. You know.. we really have no idea what hackers will do with our photos which was why I really got scared.

    Have a nice day. Hugs!
