The issue in GetHuman-limpinji's own words
Dear Facebook, **I have twice apparently been hacked by a scammer who sent attachments to groups on my FB page. Finally my account was locked and I had to prove I was the genuine holder and had nothing to do with the attachments sent out. **In the proving process, a code was sent to my mobile number **** *** *** which is an old number for a lost phone. My new number is **** *** *** which I hadn't thought to change in my account profile. Since I can't access the code sent out to my old phone number, I can't verify it is me and have my account reinstated. **I had started to open another account in my name but stopped as my friends list which was about **** names would be lost. **Can you help me please to reinstate my Facebook account?**My email address is *****@***.com and please note I am known as Jimmy Collington. I also have a website page with my wife which is www.limpinjimmyandtheswinginkitten.com.au for music and dancing.**Regards, *Jimmy. (James Collington)
