Update: I’m No Longer Locked out of Facebook

Update (Oct. 23): After proving to the folks at Meta (Facebook’s parent company) that I am who I say I am, I was notified late yesterday afternoon that I once again have access to my account. After accessing it for the first time in three days, I discovered that someone from Vietnam was logged into my account on two different devices. At that point, I was able to kick out the fraudster.

Thankfully, there were very few changes that this person made on my Facebook page.

Original posting (Oct. 20): As of sometime last night or this morning, I am locked out of my Facebook account. As my two-step security measure did not work, I conclude that I’ve been hacked and that this is hostile. I am not currently responsible for any postings on either my personal account, or the Saint Benedict Center account.

This comes at a time when I am the target of another sort of identity theft which I will not detail here fore prudential reasons. It may or may not be a coincidence.

Prayers would be appreciated as both of these things could escalate to something more than a mere nuisance.

I am making this public for what I hope would be obvious reasons.
