How do I report a Facebook account or Page that’s pretending to be me or someone else?
Accounts and Pages that impersonate other people go against our Community Standards and aren't allowed on Facebook. If you see an account that's pretending to be you, someone you know or a public figure (example: celebrity, politician), we encourage you to let us know. You can report potentially impersonating accounts to us even if you don't have a Facebook account.
To report someone who's pretending to be you or someone else, first determine if you're reporting a profile or a Page.
