Someone is pretending to be me - what do I do?
In order to verify your identity, please send us a "salute". This means we will need an image of yourself holding a handwritten sign with the word "MySpace.com" and your Friend ID (your Friend ID number appears immediately after "friendID=" in the web address/URL when viewing your profile). We can then remove the profile that uses your identity without your permission.
Please be sure to include the web address/URL to the profile in question when you send your salute.
If you do not have a profile on MySpace please write in the email address that you are emailing us from instead of your Friend ID.
If the profile is an extremely obvious attempt to be cruel/false, you may not need to send a salute. Sending a salute will definately help expediate things, though! If you are a teacher/faculty member at a school, please click on this link.
You can contact us here.
