To Facebook - May 10th
Advocating For U
First I'd like to say, thank you xxxxx for your response and time.
Please understand it's disappointing when your personal photos are used in crimes yet
have no control over anything that comes about them. Bryan was notified by Facebook of
the possible impersonating accounts, but couldn't verify the fake accounts himself.
After our personal investigation the concluding proof showed Facebooks reporting system
is significantly inaccurate. So how many impersonating accounts using Bryan's photos
are slipping through Facebooks "security cracks" if you will. Bryan was the one
addressed by Facebook. Not the other way around. It's hard to fathom how something like
this can be missed if a real person is viewing the accounts?
Receiving an answer by someone knowledgeable in this IT area has yet to occur, which
leads us to firmly believe either
1. Nobody at Facebook is sure of the reason behind innaccuracies
2. Sharing would be admitting the faults with little to no resolution in place.
3. The findings are purposeful.
I believe not only does Bryan have a right to know, but every Identity Theft victim on
the platforms experiencing the same results.
We are hopeful the team will address our findings with us in the very near future with
Thank you again xxxxx for your time and help.
We do realize you're very busy.

There's been quite a bit of time that has passed since the first email about the
"report from friends" Bryan was receiving. Are there no answers to speak of regarding
I know we asked legitimate questions that pertained to the platforms safety. If our
reporting sincerely helps the company of Facebook (as we have been told multiple times
in the past by the team) to review cracks in the system, then a comprehensive response
would be beneficial so we can all interpret the safety process when it comes to
As mentioned prior, a lack of engagement and no response does raise eyebrows. So, where
does this go from here? The concerns do not pertain to Bryan alone, but all who
experience the same platform reporting concerns. It's a significant issue for many
that will need to be addressed at some point if not here.

My fault for going silent. I just sent all past emails to our operations team to ask
them to take a look. Will also get you a more detailed response from someone on the
Completely understand and recognize that the concerns you've flagged go beyond Brian's
situation. We have a dedicated team working on the issue of impersonation, so I'll
circle back with more information from them.
Very sorry for the delay on our end,

Good Morning xxxxx, xxxxx and xxxxx
Looks like this account is still active. I'm not sure what constitutes a removal or
what is reviewed for it's dismissal. There are thousands, literally, of fake accounts
tied to this account (over 57,00 followers, primarily fake accounts of those who's
photos have been stolen and used time and time again on IG and FB for example: our
top military, the royals, bikini models, professional weight lifters, doctors, etc..)
Here is the account one more time:
Oh, and she even has a "fake Bryan" friend (which has a photo we reported to the team
to flag back in October, 2017)
Please review. There are many accounts just like this on IG.
