And this is the answer I get:

Older accounts (at least 5 years old) had the option of selecting a security question/answer to help identify themselves if they happened to get locked out of their account. Once the security question...

What am I supposed to do with that? I have had an accout for more tan seven years.

Hi

You have posted in the Facebook sub forum. Facebook never had security questions.

I read the article, it dates back to 4 years ago and the writer does not know what he is talking about, He is a fake. Facebook may ask for identification but not for a security question which you may have registered when creating the account. I am sure that you have not registered a security question when you created your account.

A lot of things have happened to my memory in the last 10 years or so, I seem to remember filling out security questions. I could be wrong, all I know is I'm pissed off that I can't get back in my account, I invested some money into 2 games.

Here is the url: https://www.facebook.com/Legosdad

well first it will ask me Where do you want us to send your six-digit code in order to reset your password? I get 3 choices

Use my Google account
Log in to Google (if you aren't already) to quickly reset your password.

Send code via email
lego**********@gmail.com

Send code via SMS
+*********72

Then I get a 6 digit code, I enter it then I enter a new password and the it sends me the same box again saying a code has been sent to either my phone or my email, but in never comes and no matter how many times you hit resend it will never show up.

But know for the last 12 plus hours I have been getting this message after I receive the code and try to enter it: You have tried entering too many codes. Try again later. When is later?

The answer to questions 4 & 5 are yes

and the last time I was on facebook was on 11/03/17

Hi

Your Facebook page is not online, I suggest that Facebook disabled it because you may not have used your real full name.

They finally sent me an email after I had sent them a half a dozen and it said my account was temporarily suspended because I was tagging to many photos which I never did I never tag anybody, posting to many pictures and commenting on peoples who I don't know;s posts also crap. I almost never reply to a post even when it's somebody I know.

My guess is some Trump lover got upset that I occasionally post articles that have been fact checked about Trump. .

That's what happens now to people who live in a blue state.

Facebook and other social media have begun a campaign against fake news.

I guess that you will need to wait until the block is finished.

Thanks for letting us know.
