    I dont know if anyone here has had this happen but I added someone as an admin on my page and they took me out of the admin list. Normaly i wouldnt care but i have put alot of time into the page and worked our way up to 16,000 fans! our stats our great but now some dude is claiming he hacked me all over the page and facebook and no customer service! If i would of known there was no way to get the page back i would of never trusted anyone with admin of the page. Does anyone know of something that can be done here?

    nope only have it shut down, i had this happen to me, after numerous emails to facebook all they would do is close the page, at the time I had 15,000 likes. they will never reinstate you as admin. You will need to claim intellectual property or copyright on the page and have it disabled

    Once they took the page down I have to setup and new page and after 100 emais to facebook I got them to transfer the likes over to the new page! YES THEY CAN DO THIS CAUSE THEY DID IT FOR ME!!!

    you will need to get quite stern with them and tell them you have paid thousands of dollars in facebook adds only to get hacked!! Then i threatened to take it to the tv shows and they quickly transferred the likes over, be prepared for the whole thing to take a couple of weeks. they even transfered my page link name in the end.!!!

    If it was an official page (i.e. your friend had legal rights to own that page) then you can file a complaint on Facebook to return ownership. Just click on "Report Page" (which can be found at the lower right corner of the page) and then select "Is this your intellectual property?"

    If it was an unofficial page, then sorry, but there is no way to get it back.

    IMO, yours is a case of "Compromised Pages..."

    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=18894
    In such a case FB is limited to this:
    Quote:
    If an unauthorized person gains admin status, we encourage you to contact them directly to resolve this matter. Unfortunately, Facebook is not able to reinstate you as an admin for any group or Page.
    Unquote

    I think you should contact them and report a "stolen identity"/"identity theft" which can be more serious in nature. But they may simply block you page until you provide them with more serious documents like a notarized request, photo IDs, and/or even a police complaint copy as they ask in the following form...
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=impostor_data_requests
    
    http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=117152291702875&ref_query=account+is+stolen
    Not very sure about what steps you should take to get your account back.

    Why don't you talk to your other admin friend(??) directly? See what he has to say on this...

    Is that other admin a colleague and you both were working for someone else, like a website which wanted that FanPage and both the site and the FB FanPage are not owned wholly by you? And circumstantially, you had to add that other person as another admin? I guess that maybe something went terribly wrong between the site owner and you? I mean, is the site behind that FanPage yours? Too many questions here, but...

    I think this is a strong possibility... but may be I am naturally a bit too suspicious and more-probing-sniffing-type:) in such cases.

    Well i was under the impression that i could get the page back rather easily so i gave admin to someone i didnt know well and he took it and is trying to act like a hacker. Its probably a 15 year old kid. Facebook makes way too much money for this to be this easy. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I guess i should of known better, somehow.

    FB could care less about people losing fanpage rights.
    This is why they made it so you need to enter your password to add new admins.

    You can email them all you want, id say the chances of them helping your are around 1%. Sucks that you lost your page man really.. But let this be a lesson, DONT TRUST ANYONE!

    Wrong moves... :)

    You cannot play kid/amateurish games with FB (which is arguably World's strongest site atm) by asking your friends to help you block the Fan Page. You will need solid evidence that your site has been wrongfully hacked and your identity is being stolen. For that you need serious legal documents proving those things to FB.
