Submission + - How Facebook Wants You To Deal With Identity Thieves (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: "If someone steals your identity on Facebook, here's what Facebook wants you to do: 'Go to the imposter’s Timeline, click the downward arrow in the settings box, and select Report/Block,' writes privacy blogger Dan Tynan. 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."
