Is Facebook conducting illegal co-operations of identity theft?

Asked about 1 year ago - Lake Charles, LA

Facebook has so many people like me concerned over privacy concerns that the website is becoming an invasion of privacy ,and identity theft.
I had an account hacked a while back , and received a reply in an email from "The Facebook Team" when trying to regain access to my account.
They now want a copy of my government-issued photo ID.
They now want me to scan, and take a picture of me ID.
Who is receiving our information ,and who behind Facebook willing to steal once I hand over my identification?
Is this an illegal co-operation of identity theft ,and what can I do since I still have the emails of such questions to hand over my my personal information?
