Wednesday, July 11th, I woke at 6:30am to a friend’s text message asking me if I had gotten hacked.
Pardon me? I ask. She then shows me a screen cap of my profile picture…with my name changed out to be an Arab name.
Weird, I think…
In a panic, I quickly go to my facebook app and sure enough…. I’m locked out. I try all the alternate emails , phone numbers. Nope… this guy was good.
I go to my email and find out he had gotten on just TWO Hours before and had hacked into my email AND then onto my Facebook page. Changed ALL my security settings and options for both my email and my facebook profile, and completely locked me out of both by changing all security settings to his own Arab phone number and name and email.
Well fabulous. .
This can be fixed, right???
Each day I’m thinking more and more it’s probably a big, fat NO. After lots and lots of emails to facebook (which by the way..finding a way to contact facebook…ESPECIALLY when you are locked out…is incredibly hard to do. So after several days and a lot of tears of frustration, I finally got a screen that came up during one of my noramal attempts to log on from facebook . Facebook sent me a link to upload my ID to prove who I was. In the meantime, facebook deactivated my account. And the next day…they disabled it. Wow. Thanks facebook for fixing that problem.
We are now going on day 5 and still no word from facebook. In the meantime, I have been spending EVERY. WAKING. HOUR trying to contact all of my amazing clients who I had been speaking with on my business page on facebook to inform them of this unfortunate mess and get into contact with them.
If you have been speaking with me on Facebook and haven’t gotten a response. I promise, I’m not ignoring you….just have a completely disabled account. PLEASE send me a text or you can email me from here to Flutterbugphoto@yahoo.com.
Hopefully they WILL give me back my account. After finally reaching 3100K followers, Hundreds of amazing, amazing clients, and YEARS of hard work to get to where I am… Facebook took me down. We will not even get to my personal page with so many special memories and photos that I will never get back. (yep…. tears are flowing again).
So until then friends, please just be sure to contact me this way. I will be posting ALL mini session sign ups here on this website. I will also be posting all sneak peeks here. Sorry for the inconvenience and hopefully I will get out of this Facebook purgatory and can be back and running soon.
