Man called ‘Something Long and Complicated’ loses Facebook account

London, Oct 7 (IANS) The administrators of social networking website Facebook have blocked a Briton called ‘Something Long And Complicated’ from accessing his account as they believe his name is fake, a media report said on Wednesday.

The row over the 30-year-old Londoner’s name, who was born William Wood before changing his name officially by deed poll in 2007, also means that the man is unable to access his precious pictures, including those of his wedding day, he uploaded on the site.

“I have had the account for eight years and they have shut it down before but this time they are not reactivating it,” the Mirror quoted Something as saying.

“Usually it is sorted out pretty quickly but it has been three days now.”

He claims to have sent the Facebook administrators photographs of documents, including his driving license, which show the name is legitimate. But he alleges to still be locked out of the account.

“I have sent in all the documentation they have asked for to prove my identity but the account still hasn’t been reactivated.

“I have all my life on there. I use messenger so cannot keep in contact with my friends because all their contact details are stored on there. I’m really frustrated and annoyed at this situation. I just want my photos back,” the man said.

He alleged that his entire online identity “has been robbed by one website”.

“All my ‘login with Facebook’ websites like tinder and 9gag won’t let me use their services because my Facebook connect is broken,” the man said, adding that Facebook is ruining his life.
