Windows 7: Facebook Account

Facebook Account

So I login to my email account and notice there is a 'facebook password changed' message. I go check it then immediately go to facebook and request a password change because I don't remember changing it. I notice there are two emails listed there to which the password reset link would be sent. Asterisked of course. I then request a pass and change the password afterwards and notice it is a chinese guy or malyasian guy, I donno, but this person has my email in their facebook account. Why would this guy add my email to his facebook account? More importantly when you ask for a password from facebook it shows two emails.. one mine and the other some other email account. I am confused by this.

My concern of course is that I created an account on facebook and forgot about it. I have several facebook accounts which I don't use. So why would he add my email and his own email as alternate email addresses if this is indeed his account... doesn't make sense.

to try and get a reset link sent to his account in case you get your password reset again, remove his email from the alternative addresses and reset your password again, enter the email in Facebook search bar and see who comes up, chances are he's already registered his email will his real Facebook account and you can report him to Facebook for hacking.
