Someone with the same name as my sister seems to have inadvertently created a Facebook account with her email address. The funny thing is that this person doesn't seem to have ever accessed my sister's Gmail account. My sister tipped me off that emails from Facebook were appearing in her inbox. I took a look, and saw the following:
- "Just one more step to get started on Facebook"
- "Welcome to Facebook - get started now!"
- "Getting back onto Facebook"
By clicking the link in one of these emails, I was able to log into the new Facebook account, and change the password.
The strange thing is, a Facebook account with an unverified email should show that yellow bar at the top of the screen, but this one didn't; yet, in the account settings, my sister's email address is listed as the primary address, but not verified.
Any ideas how this could have been done? Or if you need me to check something on the account, let me know. Thanks.
