+ - Facebook Locking Users Out, Demanding Photo ID->

Submitted by andrew3
andrew3 (2250992) writes "Facebook is reportedly locking out users who are suspected of infringing their Terms of Use. Facebook addict Karina Moreno received a message upon logging into her account asking for her government issued photo ID. According to Chris Morran of The Consumerist online magazine, this change is due to a recent crackdown on fake, malicious profiles. Moreno insists she didn't violate any of Facebook's rules. Facebook later restored her account and apologized, saying her account was suspended by mistake."
