    Facebook Page Hacked & Verified Page asked to take ownership of your page

     

    I wanted to make a quick announcement for those of you who use fan page over Facebook. A few hours ago on 6th July’2014, I received a notification in as Bdlive24 Facebook page as admin tab that looked really strange…

     

    The message said:
    “Page verified has requested to take ownership of your Page. If you approve the request, Page verified will take ownership of this Page which will allow the admins of the Page verified business to manage Page roles. Accepting this request is permanent.”

     

    Please the screen shots of how this notification looks like (In the uploaded Picture)

     

    When I first saw this notification I thought that Facebook finally decided to verify Bdlive24’s Facebook fan page (more about Facebook process of verifying pages here at https://www.facebook.com/help/269614913183739/

     

    P.S - Facebook is very vague on how this process actually works)...but it seems that this notification was actually a SCAM. A scam that right now left www.bdlive24.com without a Facebook Page.

     

    How this scam / hack actually works : Somebody ( with bad intentions ) created a fake profile with a fake username (Verified Page ) and a very misleading profile picture ( that actually looks like the original notification came from Facebook ) and asked us to take ownership of my page.
    Since Facebook is not clear on how this process works I didn't know what to expect and I clicked Approve and now 7, 00,000+ people who liked our page can’t access our Facebook page.

     

    It seems that the guy who took over our page unpublished and delete all of our admins (almost 10 members) from our page over Facebook and that moment if you tried to access it you went be redirected to Facebook main page.

     

    Soon after I directly written details on Facebook Help community for this matter like this

     

    But I was so much confused about the matter happened! Is really I get back our enriched fan page through this complain.
    I was tensed!
    Yes! In that day probably at 11.00 PM I have got a link from one the community friend in Facebook. That guy gave me a useful link

    http://www.facebook.com/help/contact/164405897002583

    I got something dare! Then I applied and fill up all the boxes like the following screen shots!
    After that with lots of tensions and pressures I went for sleep.

     

    In the morning! That’s goes crazy, when my dear colleagues ensures me over the phone, that we got our page back, which is, http://www.facebook.com/pagebdlive24 ! I get just amazed and happy that I can’t tell with some written words. That was challenging for me as I was the newbie in office, http://www.bdlive24.com

     

    But my question goes to Facebook authority that we just got our page is it was but they don’t take any credit by sending any types of notifications or email. Why?
    So, is that was your fault of operations. Really this matter shows you’re lacking dear Facebook!

    Yes I want to mention you that this newly raised “SCAM” has become aggressive and destructive for fan page owners and admins in few days over the worlds. Lots of people are losing their popular fan page during this “SCAM” named as verified page.
    Facebook do something please. Through CNN i-Report I just want to help people from this “SCAM”
