I dont know who's the bloody hacker and how can he access my FB account. I have no virus or any infection on my PC as such, my PC is well secured with anti-virus and anti-spyware. If that's the case, I m afraid I will lose my FB account soon..
Dinesh,
Can't you find some local security site that will trace the hacker down?

I had FB account and then removed it in its entirety. Too easy for the hacker's to obtain info.
Best of luck my friend.

Don't you have a local government agency that you can report this hacker to?
Contact FB and let them know what is going on.
Don't give up until you get some answers and resolution!

I appreciate the update on FB.
I just don't want my friend, Dinesh, having to go through more than he can handle.
His plate is full with Mom being sick and all.

Have you also changed your e-mail address as well as that's what you use to log in to Facebook, and set it so your e-mail is not viewable by just anyone. I've got all my info set so only friends that are actually my friend (not friends of friends) can see my info like what my interests are, what my favourite music is etc, but my e-mail address is hidden altogether.

Hope you get it all sorted easily like as The Howling Wolves said, you have enough to deal with already with your Mum than to worry about someone hacking your Facebook.
