Facebook demands legal ID, shuts down main LTV account.

October 16th, 2014


Earlier this week, I was notified that the main LTV presence on Facebook, an account at this url: https://www.facebook.com/control.ltv (don't bother copy and pasting, it now leading to a fraudulent "broken link" page) was taken down. They claimed the name in use was not a 'real name'. (The name at the time read 'Conntrol LTV Abbadon'). So I said to myself, fine. Who cares. When I logged in, it prompted me to add my 'real name'. I did just that (forgetting to add a middle initial, which it wouldn't let me add a minute later). It let me back in, and I posted a (justified) pissed off post about it. A few hours later, the account was again shut down. Only this time, Facebook was demanding that I send them an actual copy of government identification. I'm not kidding. See the attached screen grabs.
