Victim Exposes the Ease of Hacking a Facebook Profile

Victim Exposes the Ease of Hacking a Facebook Profile

A reddit user has detailed how someone hacked his Facebook profile and business pages by sending a picture of a fake ID with his name to Facebook support and demanding that they turn off login approvals, a request to which support duly obliged.

User SquidWhale revealed on reddit that person responsible for gaining access to his Facebook accounts changed the registered e-mail, phone number, and two-step verification, locking the owner out entirely. The hacker – using the term loosely, since lax Facebook security is to blame here – then sent the original users’ girlfriend sexually abusive material.

“The ID isn’t me,” SquidGuy wrote on reddit. “[I]t’s a random black guy with my name, all other information is wrong, such as the birthday, etc, I don’t even own a passport, and the passport that they used wasn’t even signed.”

“I’m obviously pretty devastated as that’s a lot of years and money down the drain,” he lamented, adding, “The hacker also sent my fiancé a picture of his genitals, at this point it’s blatant harassment.”

SquidGuy has contacted Facebook support numerous times regarding the matter, but it remains unresolved. On the advice of a fellow reddit user, SquidGuy tweeted Facebook (“Send them a tweet with links to all this, they’ll feel more obliged to respond,” wrote J4CKR4BB1TSL1MS):
