The issue in GetHuman-deidarar's own words
I found out that my account was hacked. Yesterday. I only realized today because my mom was asking why she couldn't find me.**My name changed, different description, and there was someone else new in my friends list I didnt recognize. AND I found out my orginal email was changed apparently.**Even if it wasnt, I dont have access the email I orginally made my account with as it had been years since I last used the account. I cannot even log into the enail because my information wasnt correct so I have no idea how to restore access to the account via my email cause that option isnt going to work.**I thought that it was just my password being altered not my account getting hijacked. I tried to go the route of using the link in the help center to get it done but it needed my email.. and when it finally gave me the option to try and restore access to my account, it was not displaying the right profile picture. It displayed a blank one. **So... can you guys take down these two accounts and delete them? The one using my orginal email and the one that got hijacked.
GetHuman-deidarar did not yet indicate what Facebook should do to make this right.
