    Hey guys,

    I used to have a facebook account with nearly 5k friends.
    But this is not my original account, but it is a fake local artist account instead.
    I created this account previously so that i can easily get local friends.

    But last week i can't access to it and got error saying wrong password.
    I even try to answer the security question but it's a wrong answer.
    I was about to report to FB but then obviously they need my particular.
    When the fact is that this is a fake account and i have nothing to proof my identity.

    Then i saw the profile URL have been changed (facebook.com/SampleName)
    I didn't even change anything than i realize it was hacked.

    Can anyone advice on how to get back this account?
    Does anyone know how he hacked into my account?


    Thanks

    Thanks for the advice.

    But nope, its mine since Day 1.
    I created it and upload few original photos and make it look real, got lots of friends from it.

    maybe the original owner claimed account back. Can you see what the Facebook page is like now. You can even call the artist and just ask him that you would like more info about his work and ask him if he has Facebook account if he does ask him the url and that will tell you if he took it.

    If it was a local artist with 5K friends and the URL was changed it probably got converted from a profile into a fanpage. FB will do this with "celebrities" no matter how big or small, once their pages get too large.

    This happened to me 2 years ago with a profile for a local bar which had 5000 friends also. I got it back by fighting with fb n got it back even though it wasn't a fan page and should have been. It was hacked again then I couldn't get it back FB deleted it.
