The issue in GetHuman-calvinz's own words
I was scammed into providing my information by a suspicious craigslist post and this individual took advantage of my vulnerability as a buyer to extort information from me ... I was scammed while trying to find a lease on craigslist. The scammer tricked me into giving a photo of my ID. They then changed my accounts email and I submitted a photo ID of proof of there ownership of the account I am getting this message *We're sorry. It looks like you already uploaded your ID. We'll get in touch when we review it. Essentially this person scammed out of my Driver's License and is holding my facebook account hostage with it because they changed the email. Additionally, the one leverage I have, has been voided because I am locked out of my account because of the following message: Identify photos of friends (hourly limit exceeded). I think that if I were to fix this via this way it would just send updates to the hijacked email. I can prove ownership of the account with documents that the hacker cannot prove so I can regain secure access to my account.
I knew it was suspicious and they still got away with it and there should be a simple solution but there is not to regain control of my account because of silly protocols and technicallities
I would like it right to regain access of my account by having my email replace the hacker's. I will then take extra careful measures to safeguard my account in the future.
I have had my account for around ** years and to lose it in such a way is extremely embarrasing and scary.
I was aware of the shady methods the hacker was using so while he was trying to crack my account I was fighting against it. He secured the victory because he sent in a photo of my ID he tricked me into providing to facebook and changed the email to account.
I have an issue with Facebook too
