The issue in GetHuman4998694's own words
I believe my account was hacked and somebody posted something offensive that broke some of your rules. The account was disabled (back in early April ****). I have had to create a new account, but would prefer to be able to use the old one. My name is HOWARD JOHNSTON (the name of the Facebook account). My old password was: visagevolume and my email address was: *****@***.com. However,that email address no longer exists, because the provider (Virgin) ceased supporting .net email addresses several years ago. I have tried to contact Facebook via their various help options but have got nowhere. I suspect that is because they will try and respond to that email address - which is pointless since it is no longer active or in existence. I owuld like this old account restored please - I am assuming it still exists - but is just dormant*inoperative at present. It contained a great many friends and acquaintances with whom I have no other way of contact - as well as details of groups I was a member of (sometimes as administrator) - meaning presumably that those groups are no longer active? If you could tell me what the error was. I am prepared to admit I might have said something in jest that was taken the wrong way, although I doubt it. I do believe it was hacked because my bank contacted me around the same time telling me somebody (via Facebook) had been trying to take small amounts of money from my account. That's too much of a coincidence to my mind. I have tried to reactivate it again with no success. I even changed the password and email addresses to - Xanthippos*** and *****@***.com - in an attempt to try and get you to do something about it. My account listed that I am resident in Bebington UK. Can you please get back to me and we can sort this out? Thank you. HJ
