Having dealt with something extremely similar myself I was guided to clear my web browser's history/cache/etc after doing all the resetting, then close your browser and reopen it and try logging in again.
I know it sounds simple, but it did allow me to log into FB properly afterwards.
OH! Something else, as you go through the re-verification screens, make sure you aren't getting red error text at the bottom of the page, I had forgotten to select one field and I missed the error and kept getting stuck.
Hope this helps!

My acct has been hacked and my password changed mike boisen@facebook.com also my email michael_boisen@msn.com has been hacked password changed and security questions changed


Here is a link for FB that will helpicon1.png you recover your hacked account..
https://www.facebook.com/help/www/203305893040179

Once you recover the account. Setup Login Approvals. That will send a special code to your cell phone every time someone tries to access your account from an unrecognized device. Without that special code, they can't access your account.

I don't use MSN anymore and i highly recommend using http://gmail.com and setting up the 2-step verification system.

Someone broke into my account contact and closed the cuenta.que can do?, To recover it.
An account on a social networking website such as Facebook can be a prime target for hackers. If you have lost access to your Facebook account because it has been hacked, your first priority is to regain access to the account before the hacker can send messages to your friends that could result in their accounts being compromised as well.
Facebook provides tools that you can use to recover a compromised account, based on whether or not your personal email account has been hacked as well.If You Can Access Your Email
1. Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 1 on the page.
2. Click the link after Step 1 on the new page to begin the process of resetting your Facebook password.

Click in the box under "Enter Your Facebook Username," and type the name that you use when logging in to Facebook.
Alternatively, use the first box to enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.
Click the "Search" button.
A security check window appears.
Type the words that appear on the screen, and then click "Submit."
Click the "Reset Password" button.
Facebook sends an email to the address linked to your account.
The email address is displayed on the screen.
If the email address displayed is not your own, it means that the hacker who compromised your account changed the email address associated with it. If this is the case, follow the steps in the section "If You Cannot Access Your Email."
Check your email address for a message titled "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation."
Open the email and click the link contained within.
The Web browser navigates to the Facebook password reset page.
Type the password that you would like to use for your Facebook account, and then type it a second time to confirm that you entered it correctly.
Click "Change Password" to log in to the account.
If You Cannot Access Your Email
Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 2 on the page.
Click the first link on the new page if your email account has been hacked and you no longer have access to it, or click the second link if you followed the steps in the section.
"If You Can Access Your Email" and the email address displayed was not your own.
Type the phone number or username of your Facebook account, and then click "Search."
If you are unable to get a match, type your name plus the name of one of your Facebook friends.
Type the words displayed in the security check box, and then click "Submit."
This brings you to a Web form titled "My Account Has Been Compromised."
Fill in the information requested on the form, including your Facebook username, your name, any email addresses associated with the account, your own email address and a description of the problem.
Click "Submit."
This sends a message to Facebook notifying its support staff that your account has been compromised.
Before unlocking your account, a member of the Facebook staff will contact you to confirm your identity.

My fb account was deactivated bcs of "suspicious


Here is what facebook recommends.
Facebook says my account has been compromised. Why can't I access my account? If you are unable to log in to your account and are receiving a warning that your account appears to be compromised, Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account and has temporarily suspended it as a security precaution. It is possible that your password was "phished," or stolen by a website designed to look like Facebook. You will be able to regain access to your account once you complete the automated security verification process. When you regain access to your account, please be sure to follow all of the suggested security precautions, including:
  1. Password Protection: You should select a unique and complex password for your account and keep this entirely to yourself. Be sure that you use a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. It should also be different from other passwords you use elsewhere on the internet.
  2. Private Browsing: Please make sure that you log out of your Facebook account and quit your browser when you're done using the site. This is especially important when using a public computer or someone else's mobile device. You should also never check the "Keep me logged in" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close your browser window.
  3. Secure Email: Since anyone who can read your email can probably also access your Facebook account, you should make sure that any email addresses associated with your account are secure. To ensure security, you should change the password for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same. By varying your passwords, you can greatly decrease your account's risk of being compromised in the future.
  4. Security Question: If you have not done so already, you should add a security question to your account from the Account Settings page. You should choose a question and answer that you will remember, and no one else should be able to answer the question that you choose.
  5. Log in at Facebook.com: Make sure that when you access the site, you always log in from a legitimate Facebook page with the facebook.com domain. Do not click any unfamiliar links and do not run any executable files (files ending in .exe) on your computer without knowing what they are. If something looks or feels suspicious, go directly to www.facebook.com to log in.
  6. Run Anti-Virus Software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove these harmful programs and keep your information secure.

    For Microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/protect/viruses/xp/av.mspx http://www.microsoft.com/protect/computer/viruses/default.mspx

    For Apple http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222
