    I'm purchasing a few Facebook accounts off of a guy and this is the first time I've ran into this problem. I've used fake accounts before and not experienced it. Whenever I login with the credentials he has provided, the account is asking me to verify pictures of friends. It looks like it's just one step of many more steps to come in order to get into the account.

    I'm in contact with the seller and he is working on it, but advised me it would 'take some time' to correct. I'm not sure his plan to fix, but as this appears to be his business, I'm sure he doesnt know who are in the pictures either and cannot help bypass the verification. Curious is this is normal and if so can you suggest any workarounds? Has the account already somehow been flagged and now will be banned after just a week or two from some facebook manual review?

    I'm a little gun shy now. Thanks for any help.

    I also ran into this problem. Today, FB required me to upload my GOV ID. So disappointed.

    Is this a random thing that could happen to anybody? Or is it possible the seller did something wrong when setting up the accounts? Maybe he was supposed to use proxies, or is running millions of these accounts on one IP, etc. I don't know the first thing about the process of creating a fake Facebook account. Now I need to determine if I should try to give this guy another chance, or if I need to go with someone who knows more about what they're doing. Thoughts?

    It happens to most of the accounts after a while if you use them for spamming or such things. In your case probably the seller or even you did not use a proxy.
