are you familiar with identity theft in facebook? It's because I have this one friend who has an identity theft. she has another profile with the same pictures but she has a man who has in a relationship with but it is not true, i think the guy is insane and she likes my friend so much that he pretended that he is in relationship with my friend but is not. he also used to say status messages like i love you honey and then the fake one will say i love you too honey, something like that. what can you say about it?

I know it happens. Many people do the same like that when they are fake. I used to know a guy who has 5 profiles on Facebook and keep closer to 5 gals. He often wrote sweet words to gals on 5 profiles and update information everyday as if he belongs one gal only. He is fake...I hate any guys like that.

Yes, they are. however we can detect them through their id. Their id is not real name in there and often are sweet words...

I've heard some of those incidents in facebook. Sometimes I just wonder how people could do that.What benefits they can get from doing that. Honestly I have a facebook account before but only for a while and I deactivate it I found that its not useful for me. I hope some people will learn to respect others in anyway.

yeah me too, i cannot see anything or any benefits from getting someone's identity. it's like robbing an identity and messing up with it. i think those kind of people just wants attention.

I had encountered many similar cases on that thing on facebook. Many people used to call it as "posers" or people who use others pictures and information on facebook just to make another accounts of that person. Sometimes, they use another names that was very far from the real identity of the picture's owner.

yes they call it posers. well my friends account has the same pictures, i wonder how did he do that knowing that her true account was private. by the way my friend is a popular dancer here and abroad so maybe that's why the guy is obsessed.

Luckily I have not had that happen to me. I think your friend can report the problem to Facebook if she would like to. A very warm welcome to Mylot to you.

I have heard of this happening to people before. I'm friends with someone who people have made multiple Facebook accounts of her. She has even tried to report them I believe but either Facebook does nothing or people keep making them. I'm pretty sure on Facebook they want you to be a real person so even people who pretend to be celebrities like they did on Myspace and do on Twitter aren't suppose to. I think you're friend should try contacting Facebook about this account if she hasn't already.

She already did but thee's no response from facebook. well I guess since the site is too big and too many members, the facebook personnel, cannot do it fast. to bad too many people are being a victim of these insane people..
