My name is Mrs Sue Keeffe Mother to Matthew Keeffe,
 
Someone in my son's high school has created a Facebook account without his knowledge, they are also taken a photo of him and posted it on Facebook without my permission.
I wish for this Facebook account to be shut down, I have explained everything below and I have emailed the information to Facebook to show the account in question.
 
My son is embarressed and feels Humiliated at and being teased because of this.
I do not have the email address of this profile created against his will. The deputy at his high school and myself are trying our harding to have this account shut down.
My husband and I are furious about this and wish to resolve this matter ASAP.
 
 
My details are as follow's:
 
<snipped>
 
My Facebook Account: Sue Keeffe Ayton
I have enclosed my Facebook Photo & Driver's Licence details.
 
I wish to have my Son's Fake Facebook account taken down ASAP please as
this is not right. It is a violation of privacy and he is embarrassed and
humiliated and being teased about this.  His surname has been misspelt
keefe instead of Keeffe.
 
As I mentioned in the report, my son did not Authorise this and a photo
was taken in his class without his & my permission. My husband and I are
very angry about this we do not want him to have a Facebook Account and
would like to resolved this as quick as possible. The students at his
school that are involved with this account are in trouble.
 
I do not know the email address and Password of this fake account.
 
So again please, can you please shut this face account down.
 
Kind regards
Mrs Sue Keeffe (Mother to Matthew Keeffe)
 
Thank you for your attention.
 
My mobile number is: <snipped> I live in Sydney Australia.
Can you please help me delete my son's fake account, he does not want it, he didn't know it was created.
 
My son and I do not know the email address of the profile. 
 
I have sent a report to have this account shut down, I haven't heard anything, please can you help? My son's photo is on Facebook, its a photo of him in class. he is 14 years old almost 15 in December 2013.
 
Can someone help me shut this fake Facebook account down please?
 
Thanks
Mrs Sue Keeffe
Mother to Matthew.

Fake timelines created to imitate real people (impostor accounts) are not allowed on Facebook. If someone created an account pretending to be you:

  1. Go to the timeline
  2. Click 851585_589724764413656_583737111_n.png and then select Report/Block
  3. Select Submit a Report
  4. Choose This person is impersonating someone
  5. Follow the on-screen directions to complete your report

If you don’t have a Facebook account, please file a report here.

If you've lost access to an account you created, learn how to secure your account.

If you see an abusive Page, report it.

Getting overexcited and posting the details you did that were obviously erased isn't going to help your situation.

 

Unfortunately this stuff happens all the time and there isn't much you can do other than report it like what shozilla said.

We realise your upset but being a cheeky git to folk on a public forum isnt going to help.

Several users above have stated what you need done and what the limitations of said action are.

This is not there fault or problem and have helped as best they can.

I suggest you lower your frustation and think a little before posting.

In the mean time I hope Facebook helps you and that your cry for help is genuine and not someone trying to garnish support to have someones actual profile removed.

Sue, 

"Shockz" post on the previous page tells you step by step what you need to do.
Submit the report using the instructions he provided to you, and usually within 48 hours the page will be closed.
If you provide drivers licence and proof of ID, you will get the page closed even faster.

We're sorry but thats all we can do on this forum. Good luck.
