The great Facebook debacle of 2010

Did you know that if your Facebook account gets hacked into and you report it, Facebook disables your account? I learned that one the hard way.

A week and a half ago someone hacked into my Facebook account, pretended to be me, and proceeded to IM my friends. They claimed that I was being held hostage in London and I needed them to wire me money.

Thankfully none of my friends fell for it, and I took control of my account about an hour later.

After sending daily emails to Facebook pleading to have my account reinstated, they finally acquiesced.

Farmville here I come!
