This post seems to be the only way I can figure out to tell people about Facebook. I closed my account over a year ago. I can’t even remember when, it’s been so long! Recently, a friend mentioned that she had gotten a post from me at 3 am, what in the world was I doing up so late? Alarmed, I told her I hadn’t had a Facebook account in ages. She showed me, on her computer, the post. Of course, it was just a “Hey, look at this!” kind of scammy post, and when she clicked on it (just as she was supposed to do, seeing a post from a trusted friend!) it went to a link to ads, who knows what all, and I felt so terrible. Friends of mine apparently think I send out posts to get them to some ad place. Maybe they think I get paid to do that. I don’t know, don’t really care. What I’m FURIOUS about is that my account has been stolen for scamming purposes.
And I’m REALLY STEAMED that I am having absolutely no luck finding ANYONE at Facebook to correct this problem. Hey, maybe FACEBOOK gets paid to quietly steal accounts and profiles once they are closed. There is no customer service link, nowhere to go to get issues resolved. There is this forum thing for people with no account but none of the forum questions are answered (and the answers are apparently provided by other Facebook users, not actual Facebook staff.) And another place that wants a government ID to process your question. Yeah, like I am going to post more info to Facebook.
If ANYONE has any experience with this, has a suggestion, or a secret Facebook customer service link or number, please let me know.
I actually opened a new account (with NO INFO on it) to try to get answers from another help link. I think the “no account” link just lets people post questions to make them feel better. And mine wouldn’t even post, so I think the “no account” option is another scam.
I’m so angry I can hardly write. I did everything I was supposed to do when I closed the account, so this is a shock to me. If any of you have received Facebook posts from me, I’m sorry, please let me know. Again, any suggestions are appreciated.
