I've had an exciting evening. I've been cleaning out my attic and recently posted a couple of hockey bags for sale on some local sales sites via facebook. I've been corresponding with a couple of buyers via messenger. I have one bag sold with a pickup tomorrow and was in the middle of getting the other sale set up when this happened.
Wait... what??? My account is temporarily locked?? Ok. I guess I'll do the security check to secure my account...
I had to complete the security challenge, which is REALLY hard to read, and then identify a few friends photos... no problem.
I then had to create a new password... I can do that too.
Yes!!! I'm all set and ready to return to facebook.
What the.... Ok, I'll just click on my desktop icon and.....
I've now completed the same task about eight times now. I've identified friend's photos, correctly stated my first grade teacher's last name, had a verification text sent to me via my cell phone. Everything. I cannot unlock my account. I can't access it via my phone or ipad either. It just keeps going in an endless loop. If I ever do connect again, I'll never remember my password because I'VE CHANGED IT EIGHT TIMES!!!
Here's the worst part. There's no way to contact Facebook. It's showing I have an active account and it's telling me that I have to log in to make a complaint or request help which I cannot do. There's also no way to e-mail them. I even found a phone number for facebook that is specifically set up so when you call them they say YOU CANNOT CONTACT FACEBOOK OVER THE PHONE!!! Who does that???? I have some select words for Mark Zuckerberg right now.
I just wanted to declutter my attic and sell some hockey bags... apparently that's asking too much. *sigh*
