    Default Locked out of my Facebook account

    I use Remember Me a lot which leads to forgetting passwords since I never have to type them in. I know now that I should write my passwords down, but I joined Facebook in 2010 when I hadn't learned that lesson yet. Not only do I not remember my password, I don't remember my FB email password I used either, and had to reset it by having a code sent to a different email address. And after that I had to confirm it was me by answering some questions on either my FB email or account, I don't remember which. And I didn't remember enough. I got an email back saying I didn't provide enough information for them to confirm it was me. So I really have no idea what I can do. All the options provided for getting back into my account require me to remember things that I don't remember because it's been years since I thought about this.

    Did you use your real name?
    Did you upload fotos?
    Do you remember the PNs you sent/received recently?
    Is your profile public?

    You could try to make a skype varification with you passport.
    Else you have to ask yourself, what keeps you from just creating a new account. If there are PNs you don't want to lose, you could tell FB some of the people you wrote with or so...
    If it's only your friends accounts or groups you subscribed to: you will find them anyway if they are important.

    I used my real first name, but my middle and last name were fake to prevent specific people finding me (which ended up not being helpful because they found me anyway).

    Yeah, I've uploaded some photos of places I've been.

    Only my cover photos are public; the rest is either friends or friends of friends. I think I also have it set to where people can't search my name and find me unless I'm already on their friends list.

    I'm not sure what PN means; from context I assume messages? I haven't sent or received many recently.

    I have multiple Facebook accounts. I think around 5 or 6, maybe more. I've thought about posting on my timeline through another account explaining the situation so people would know.

    Mainly, I'm just worried someone might try to contact me without knowing my situation and thinking I'm ignoring them.

    Yeah, sorry, I meant massages...
    Don't have any more ideas :(
