    I have a fake fb profile with really good pics of a hot girl that's not all over the internet, so it's seems mega legit.

    But some impersonator made an account using my pics, and is commenting on my shit and whining telling people to report me haha.
    I blocked + deleted all the comments, and reported the account.
    Theirs only has 130 friends, mine has 5k + 1.5k followers, so I should be the winner right? lmao
    Mine's even activated via mobile, so I hope the impersonator gets deleted.

    What are your experiences with this, if you've had any?

    This is a unique situation and since you are impersonating someone and now they are impersonating you both of you
    are breaking Facebooks tos. Since yours is mobile confirmed I would say you stand a good chance but it all depends on how
    verified his account is too.

    I have 2 other mobile verified accounts which i reported the other one with aswell, but all that does is send my other acc a message prompting it to report the account.
    I'd like to think I have sleight of hand here, but I guess I'll just have to wait and hope the other account gets deleted.

    What I would worry about now is 3 accounts reporting the same account who did not know that person before seems very
    suspicious and a good way for Facebook to link all your accounts. Generally someone will report a friend has been compromised
    when they knew the person or group before.

    make a fake male account, and change your status to be in a relationship with him, and then the guy steps in and publicly says hey bitch!!!

    All of my fake accounts are mutual friends with eachother, so its not too too suspicious.

    The owner of the fake account has commented on my shit with 2 other accounts already haha, eventually I'll block them all and hopefully this will all go away xD

    EDIT:
    Just did a counter action by uploading an album of some pics that the other profile didn't have.
    I doubt situation this will be a problem... If anything I'll lose like 20-30 friends if a small percentage are convinced it's fake, but that's nothing.
