Friends identity stolen 12-31-2016, 12:02 PM
Someone took all my friends pictures and made a fake facebook account but with her real name and everything. She's been living in isolation because of it. They're getting tons of likes and it's making her out to be a dumb party girl when realistically she's a very hard working student who doesn't deserve this. She says whoevers doing this is telling people "Adult" things. She's contacted the police but says they haven't done anything. She keeps taking down the pages but they keep putting them back up. Is there anything I can do to help this situation?

There are a few things you can do.
1: File a complaint by the police for stalking. Make sure they open an investigation.
2: Tell Facebook the story you told here. They might be able to blacklist the IP for the person setting this up/logging in to the fake accounts.
3: You can setup an account yourself, try to go along with the "Adult" chatter, try setting up a meeting with the person IRL. See what you want/can do from there. You can either confront the person showing up or try to identificate who they are by following them. If you know the address of the perpetrator you can TAP his data with WireShark. That gives you leverage.
4. Make a list with all persons the victim had beef with. There is a chance the victim has been "bullied" before by the perpetrator(s) in real life. This might give you a good idea who's doing this.

In my opinion there's nothing you can do,just ignore him he'll get bored.

and here we see the problems of facebook and exposing your life on the internet.
report the profile for impersonation, and try finding out who is the person that does this, and do the same to him/her. there's nothing much that you can do.
I used to be happy, you know, that feeling. : )

I can find the person who done did this horrible crime and subject them to punishment for a fee.
