    Hi guys,
    My friends just told me her facebook group get hacked and archived.
    She reported the account but the hacker put many fake accounts as admin.

    Any idea on what to do in this case?

    They need to create a team who can deal with this type of trouble.

    That is probably not going to happen.

    Although I have taken over groups when the admin disappeared for one reason or another I have not hacked any as I don't roll that way but I have seen groups like the one you are describing.

    They never got them back.

    BTB is right. Just create a new one with the disclaimer of what happened on the first one. You may send FB a bunch of messages, but they can't do anything about it either.

    Why you are not contacting with the Facebook team?
    I think they are the best person to help you over this.

    I don't think so. FB didn't help me when I lost a couple of groups. I just created new ones.

    - Am not sure about it. Last time, I lost an admin access for one of my fan pages. I contacted the FB team, completed the verification & they have restored it.
    Now, if I have used any fake ac as my admin access then it'll not be possible at all.

    I help her to report all the fake account the hacker put in admin. Facebook deleted all the account we reported.
    But this guy put a fake page as an admin, the admin of this page is ban (we reported him as well) but the page is still here and is the only admin of the group now.
