How To Deal With Facebook Imposters and Impersonators

A friend sends you a Facebook message, warning you that you've been hacked.

"HACKED???"

Don't worry, you've very likely not been hacked at all.  In most cases it is merely someone who is an IMPOSTER; someone who has created or cloned your account by copying your profile picture and name and is merely impersonating you on Facebook.  While this is not a really huge deal, it can turn into a big problem if left unattended and should be fixed right away.

Here I talk about what you can do about it, how to report it and fix any damage that may have been done, and steps you can take to see that it is a lot less likely to happen again.

His one-man, comedy mind-reading show has been performed for hundreds of corporate and private audiences throughout the United States since the late 1980s. He also makes part of his living as a professional actor, frequently landing bit roles and extra roles in TV commercials, feature, independent and industrial films, and commercial printwork advertisements. He is an 8-year, Persian-Gulf Era U.S. Army Veteran (whose oldest daughter is also a former U.S. Marine) and an overall shameless supporter of American military troops. His most amazing feat is being married 29 years to the same woman, raising two fantastic daughters, and playing with his grandson. When not performing he enjoys stand-up comedy, playing guitar and piano, spending time with his grandson Lane, rigorous swim workouts, fine wine, whiskey, dark-roasted coffee and premium cigars. He also speaks fluent French and Spanish. He wears many hats and often refers to himself as a "Mentalist/Magician/Actor/Grandpa/Cool Dad & Above-Average Husband."
