A woman has told how she has been forced to change her name by deed poll to match her "ridiculous" Facebook pseudonym after being locked out of her account.
Jemma Rogers, 30, a holistic therapist, from Lewisham, south-east London, set up a profile on the social network in 2008.
Wanting to avoid annoying friend requests from old friends and strangers, she created the profile under the pseudonym Jemmaroid Von Laalaa.
But last month she got a message from Facebook asking her to send identification to prove it was a genuine name and account.
Confused but worried she'd be locked out, Jemma admits she desperately tried to photoshop her bank cards to prove that was her real name.
One day later, Jemma's account was suspended and she couldn't get in.
She emailed Facebook explaining what she'd done and sent over her real ID - begging them to let her back in.
But she was told they could not confirm her identity and her account was suspended.
In a desperate bid to get the profile back, she changed her name by deed poll and is now officially Ms Von Laalaa.
What's more, despite her extreme efforts, she's still locked out of her account even after sending over her new ID to Facebook.
Jemma, who's single, said: "I know I've been a completely moron, but Facebook are being ridiculous. I've been locked out of my account for five weeks now and have lost all of my photos, messages and precious memories.
