Thanks for visiting FixYa!

STOP! Do not send anything yet. This may be a scam. Do not click on the link in your email!

Let's start from the beginning. When you attempt to log into your Facebook account - if your account is being blocked by Facebook - you will receive a notice that your account is being blocked. It is a very clear notice.

Facebook then requires you to go online and fill out one of two forms:

Click here for online form (if you violated the facebook terms and statement of rights and responsibilities)
Click here for other online form (if your account was blocked because of security reasons - phishing, hacking, scam, etc)...

If your Facebook account has been hacked, your password may have been changed. If so, the person(s) responsible could easily have sent you an email requesting that you send them a copy of your I.D.

You can determine if your password has been changed by 'Identifying Your Account'. Click here first to do that:
Identify My Account

If you cannot Identify your account, click here: HELP!

If you received a link in your email to provide Facebook with additional information, make sure that you are on a REAL Facebook page. In your browser's URL window, you'll see the Facebook icon.
You'll see vanherringto_0.png

Report this email request for ID to Facebook. If it's a scam, they'll email you and let you know:

You have to contact customer support, in the event that it was hacked they will request a government state issued ID or a school ID to prove that you are you. Facebook is outdated, use another service.

Facebook has disabled my account. They asked for photo ID to prove who I am. I have sent in my ID many many many times. All the info on my account is 100% accurate. Why am I still disabled? All my photos...

You need to send an e-mail to there customer care department and from then you should ask: did you receive my photo ID?
You should then add: if you did receive my photo ID why is my account still locked?

Better still if there is a phone number for there customer care, phone that and ask the same questions.

You should be very careful when responding to e-mails which are asking for personal information. Not all are real. It's possible you responded to a fake one asking for personal information and the people that got this compromised your account, which maybe account for it being locked.

I can't access my facebook account. and i have forgot my password on the yahoo email password i've used for my facebook. is there anyway i can recover it? please help me.

In the Facebook login page, Select the forgot password link. Enter either your username or email id that you use to login or your phone number. If you have registered your phone, you would get your password as an text message. If you enter your email id you'll be taken to the next page asking for confirmation. In this page, your primary ID and an alternate ID would have been mentioned. If you have access to any of these, Submit the request. If not, select 'Don't have access to any of these?' below and enter a new email address. This should work
To recover your Yahoo account specify your Yahoo ID after selecting 'I can't access my account' from below the login page and they will send out a mail to the alternate mail id that you would have provided earlier. In case you forgot the Yahoo ID itself, you would have to mention the alternate email id you registered earlier and answer some security questions. In any case, you would have to remember the alternate email IDs. Once you recover your Yahoo ID,
