Trying to setup a Facebook account. Created a new Gmail address for it. Once completed it instantly disables. Requests a mobile number which I gave it and also verified via the phone. Still disabled and requests a photo so they can verify the account (which was already done via e-mail and phone) And how can you verfy someone from a photo they upload when you don't know the person in the first place.
They say they will check the photo and I'll hear back in a few days. A few days later they say they have perm disable the account with no appeal for breaking guidelines. What guidelines? I'd only just setup the account. I was on a VPN, surely that can't be the issue, there are plenty of business's that are behind a VPN.
So to test, I setup a VM so everything is fresh. New e-mail address. New IP on the VPN, the MAC on the NIC would be different as its a VM. Verfy the account via e-mail again, then attempt to login to Facebook and again it disables the account.
I'm confused. I know they are trying to combat fake accounts, but why are they instantly disabling the account I'm creating? The name used is real. It's very odd.
