The issue in GetHuman924498's own words
I had a deleted account from years past resurface two days ago. This account was hijacked and spamming folks with the rayban virus. Because it was being controlled by someone other than myself, I reported it to the cyber division of the FBI. I am grateful that Facebook immediately removed the profile. However, I searched my name and found additional profiles that I created years ago (before Facebook started implementing security measures to protect privacy). I found a couple that I thought were permanently deleted, but have resurfaced. Because of their age, I was unable to recover them and delete them again. Because these accounts were not hijacked, I did not report them to cyber FBI and do not plan to. However, I do have some concerns about these accounts being hijacked in the future, especially since I cannot control them. I'd like facebook to look at these accounts and delete them again (not sure why they keep resurfacing!). I'd be happy to submit a copy of my driver's license or any other verification needed since I don't have the recovery methods anymore. Again, I thought these were deleted. I have reported them through fb.
