Someone’s using my friend’s pictures as his own and this has probably been going on for a while already. He has many pictures up and many random friends have been added to that account. I’ve reported that account to be an imposter, but Facebook hasn’t deleted it yet. I’m not sure if the fact that he’s a daily Facebook user who posted up a lot of pictures & has a lot of Facebook friends has anything to do with that. How do I ensure his account will get deleted? Thanks.
If there’s a fake account, you can report it to Facebook to be removed/deleted. Here’s how:
First, go to their profile page and find the “Report” link:
You’ll then see a screen like this:
You can then send the report to Facebook.
Here’s a video explaining the steps:
If someone dies/passes away, you’re able to ask Facebook to remove that account and people use this as a sneaky way to get someone’s account removed.
To do that, go here:
Special Request for Deceased Person’s Account (facebook.com)
The trick is, you need proper documentation. People used to use this trick as a prank to get accounts removed or just to do that to others so they stepped up the procedure to close an account. You need to provide the right documentation, as explained here:
Submit one document to provide proof of authority:
- Power of attorney
- Birth certificate
- Last will and testament
- Estate letter
Submit one document to provide proof that your loved one has passed away:
- Memorial card
Note: the information on the documentation you provide must match the information on your loved one’s account.
