Is it illegal to make a fake facebook profile and talk to someone online and on the phone for sometime? There was no monetary gain, just conversating on the phone. They are claiming they can press charges and take this person to court, is this true? The fake facebook account has been deleted by the person who made it, and they have not contacted the person they were talking to since they found out it was a fake account. Again there was no intent to gain any money in any, there was never even a discussion about money, it was just talking on the phone everyday. Is there legal charges that can be pressed in this situation in Minnesota??
