Sounds reasonable, except that smart faker's have discovered a foolproof workaround: Block the real user. If you can't get to the page, you can't report it. Oh, and there's one other tool Facebook has given you to report fakes, says Tynan: A webform that only works if you don't have a Facebook account."
