    e-Mail Account Used by Another Person for Facebook

    Found out that someone else uses my e-mail account to sign up for facebook using his name (not my name, so he didn't impersonate my profile but the e-mail used is mine). It looks like that the person didn't get access to my e-mail account but I am not sure. I think it's just a typo when entering his e-mail as his first name is the same as mine.

    Any suggestions on where to report this ? I tried to find the info on where to report this situation on facebook but apparently there is no option to report that e-mail address used by another person ?

    Change the password of that facebook user since it will be sent to your email account, and then delete the account.

    It said that "The email you entered does not belong to any account. You may try clearing your browser's cache and cookies by following ...etc". Probably the person already changed his e-mail then ?

    Either that or you're being fished. Phished?
