    I have exactly the same problem with my facebook account and a new one we created for my husband... What is going on???

  • asafurst Oct 28, 2008

    my email address for facebook was terminated a few months ago because it was a college email address. now i have a new email address and because my password has been reset i can't access my old email address to retrieve it.

  • Faithypoo Nov 17, 2008

    I have the exact problem...I was wiped out of Facebook. I am hoping they can help me. When I went on to another account- I deactivated it and told them the situation and then, added the link from one of my previous emails that had all kinds of numbers in it. I hope they can figure out something. I am glad I wasn't the only person who had this problem!

    me and my partner were both creating facebook accounts using the same e-mail address. My partner finnished creating her account/profile before me and as such registered first. I initially completed the first stage of the sign up process (where I recieved confirmation to my email address and a link to finnish the application process) and now wish to finalise so as to become a member and start using the site but everytime I click on the link to facebook website my partners account with my email address automatically comes up (as if by default) meaning I am unable to complete my application and as such are still unable to use facebook. I tried starting again from the beginning but again as soon as I reach the website its my parters account which pops up.

    my husband changed careers and updated his email address for facebook to the home email address we share...not realizing that it would deactivate my facebook address. now, I cannot access facebook and even trying to change both of our contact addresses to new gmail addresses does not seem to solve the problem. does anyone know how to fix this issue?

  • sscarlson Jan 03, 2009

    I have the same problem, did you get any resolution?

  • ev68 Jan 06, 2009

    Same problem - so frustrating!! I signed up, added friends, chatted and everything. I logged out and went to log back in and was told invalid user/password. After much failure of trying to get back in, I clicked on the original Activation link they sent in the original email. It created a duplicate account linked to my same email, completely empty of friends, etc. Now I can see my original 'self' when I search my name but can't even add myself as a friend as I can't confirm I know my second self because my first self can't get in to confirm. Ridiculous!! I still get emails from my original profile saying people are adding me, writing, etc. and I can't do a thing about it. I wrote FB a few times and got one email back saying they had reset the password and all should be solved. I used the new password and it just took me back to the second empty account. If anyone gets resolution on this, PLEASE let us know!

    Facebook gives me an error message that my email is not registered. I have been on Facebook for several weeks now and still receive notices when someone posts something on my page. However I cannot sign in.
    I tried several times to contact Facebook admin using their 'help'
    system but hear nothing back. Nothing. No response.

      I am currently having the same problem. A second account using the same email as mine ( stupid--my mistake) now has superceded my original account! I changed the email for the second account but still can not access my own account. Was facebook able to help you with your problem or did you have to start over from scratch and create a new account for your self tdixon50303?

    • Kfsgm May 04, 2009

      I was locked out of my facebook account, it said the the user name/password was incorrect, but I had not changed anything on my account. I sent a request for a password change, but didn't ever get an email for a change request. So my husband put in for an account, used the same email address as mine, and now I have another account, but can't access my old one....I can search and find my old account, but can't access it...make any sense? How do I get my old account back?? HELP!!!!

    • shabana75 May 11, 2010

      Hey badthree,
      I haven't been able to login to my facebook either because it says my email is unregistered so I emailed TRUSTe watchdog like you said but they said my problem didn't fall under their privacy program? They said that they would still send it to facebook but I'm guessing this means that facebook doesn't have to fix it? Can you tell me what you told them (TRUSTe) to get it fixed?

      I believe each account can only be assigned to one email address. when you sign up a new account and try to use an e mail account or user name it should give an error message that is already registered.

      going into an already created account and changing the contact information to an already existing contact information might present a problem, as there is a duplicate and the system might reassign, or replace the old with the new..

      One thing I do know in computer world, there can be no duplicates of the same file, in the same area..

      which means file xyz can not be in the same folder as file xyz , file xyz can be in two different folders but not in the same root folder ... one will supersede or replace the other..

    I am going through the same problem. Go to the help button on facebook and click it. Under using facebook, click on login/password. You are going to see to subject areas: troubleshooting, and functionality. Click on the functionality link. Depending on what kind of message you are receiving, click on one of the links that applies to you and fill in the required information that they ask you. The facebook team will try and resolve the issue as soon as they can.

    Hope this helps.
