Account #1 Frozen, Now Account #2 Also Frozen - Can't Find a Reason

Reply Sun 8 Oct, 2017 11:16 pm
I had a FB account and all was well until one day FB decided I needed to pass a security check. All I had to do was enter the security code they would text to my cell phone. I received the code and entered it ... code was WRONG! So I tried again, same result. I made sure I was copying and pasting lest I accidentally type the code wrong. Same result. I tried changing my password and was actually able to do so, but again I had the same security code issue [It's a hell of a note that FB would let me change my password but wouldn't let me access the account, isn't it?]. Still, it was always the same thing: I'd receive the security code and it was always wrong.

I was advised to leave the account alone for a week, so I did and when I tried again, I had the same result. My wife said my account had disappeared from her list of friends, so in desperation I started a new account. Until today all was okay with the new account (other than losing everything in the old account). However, FB has continued to send me e-mail notifications of things posted by friends who were in the OLD account but weren't yet friended in the new account, which led to my second downfall.

I made the mistake of trying to log in using the link in one of these e-mails. Not only did it not work, but this time when it got to the screen where it's supposed to ask if I want them to text or e-mail the security code, it won't even do that. Instead it says my account isn't even eligible to receive a security code and won't do anything -- the choices aren't even shown. And I recognize that this account is the "new" account anyway. So, now I'm effectively locked out of TWO FB accounts and yet I still have to put up with the *&^%$ notifications! So, I still have to put up with the notifications for an account I can't access and I can't turn them off, either, because to do that I'd have to log into FB! God, right now I hate FB soooooooo much!

Before the latest lockout, I tried asking for help on the FB help forums; however I never got any reply. Now that avenue is gone as well, because you have to log in to FB in order to get FB help!

I find no evidence that anything has been hacked. Nobody is reporting any weird posts from me. It's all just related to the fact that FB sent the wrong confirmation codes.

Did you ever find out why you had to pass a security test?

Are you trying to run a business using FB?

No, and no. I don't even have a business.
