A No Holds Barred Approach.

>Who To Contact If Your Account Is Disabled.

>Hi Everyone, I have some useful information if your Facebook account is disabled. Please save it as you never know when it may come in handy for you or a friend of yours.

As you know Facebook is becoming more and more ANTI-SOCIAL every day and they are disabling accounts for just adding friends amongst other things. So you need to be careful. It seems you also have to be careful when you are in a clan war as there are a few of them reporting accounts to win wars.

Well here is a list of contacts at Facebook on who to contact. A temporary disabled account can stay that way for anywhere from 8 hours to 30 days. If you email Facebook this can be sped up to get you back online quicker as they need to manually override the system and they want a good reason to do this so sob stories help your cause and friends emailing them on you behalf helps too. http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=disabled and you should hound them with emails from yourself and your friends telling them why your account should be restored and be respectful. Here are the email addresses and include your facebook id with each email. Mail at least 2 a day if you give up after a few days you dont have a chance.

info@facebook.com ; disabled@facebook.com ; appeals@facebook.com ; privacy@facebook.com, abuse@facebook.com ; warning@facebook.com ; customerservice@facebook.com ; legal@facebook.com

Also here is some additional contact info for Facebook:

Palo Alto, CA 94301-1605
156 University Ave
Palo Alto, CA 94301
650-543-4811 (Interview Request Line)
Fax #:650-543-4801

I know how frustrating it can be when your account is disabled. So please be respectful when you send these emails or they will just ignore you and you may never get it back. Remember Facebook does NOT have customer support so don’t click that option or it will direct you to the help section and you will be disconnected.
Now I decided to include some information on Zynga too but only customer service info as they actually have a customer service department.
If you run into trouble and need support from Zynga:

Customer Support Site: http://zynga.custhelp.com/app/home/

Customer Support Guide: http://forums.zynga.com/showthread.php?t=324238

or their direct email for mafia wars support is : mwsupport@zynga.com

Zynga Game Network Inc.

365 Vermont Street San Francisco, CA 94103

So please be careful and I cant stress this enough please be respectful as frustrating as it is. I hope this helps. This information can also be found on my podcast Fan Page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Facebook-Zynga-Podcast/145826638767230 so you can see it there too, but this is easier to share with your friends.

  2. >I have been disabled by Facebook 3 times. The last 2 times they apologised and re-instated my account. This time I can't even get an automated reply from them. As far as i know I haven't done anything wrong – had no warnings etc. I am sick to death of them now – and hope they burn in hell. I've now lost all my friends, my pictures – because my hard-drive went down and I hadn't downloaded them, as well as the zygna games. They are abusing their position – and playing with peoples lives – and should be accountable. Cathy Stevens

  7. >They are even worse now, I tried adding a friend, but since we only had one friend in common I got a box stating "are you sure you know this person, you can't send this request" etc etc… Facebook totally stinks atm, wish there was a network as accepted among my friends I could use instead… Everyone I know live in fear of having their accounts disabled, most have had theirs for several years and building up a new network would take years with the 4 adds a day limit…

  13. >Thanks John for the info. At least now I know where to go if I have any problems. They threatened to shut me down because I was sending too many add me requests for people who were friends of the person that wanted to be my friend.

  14. >Yes I can only do four requests and it seems to be safe only four a day, as when I wait eight hours I get another card upSo Thanks, It is a long long way to 501 members at MW, I wonder why since I only hit on "add me" by the person seeking to be added. Why is this potentially offensive to any one. Do some of us get on a dangerous list?
