Shut down my account, blocked my ads and my credit card.

Geniuses.

Have you done this yet? If so, what happened?

I lost a personal Facebook account because of that verification process.

A lot of my friends like to tag people to random / silly things in photos as jokes. But Facebook used a lot of those when I got locked out. Needless to say I couldn't always answer right when shown a picture of a shoe, Homer Simpson, an ad for a Japanese face exerciser or a photo from a concert showing the audience at a festival.

The thing is that for other people it could go the other way. Imagine a small group of friends that only tag real, clear photos of each other. It's entirely possible that an outsider could know each of their names and get into the account easily.

Among the worst verifications I've ever seen.
