I've been getting messages from random people regarding a fake Facebook page that was made of me. This fake page according to all who has contacted me, was in the business of selling bats and never fulfilled their order.
I don't how, but now I have random people writing to me advising to get a lawyer, send the money back, and to make things right.
They also found out where I live, where I work, and even know my previous co workers. One has also threatened to get my job involved.
I have no connection with this fake page what so ever. What should I do?
You have posted this in workers compensation, which is for people hurt at work You will need to repost it in a different specialty area, possible criminal. I would indicate that if it is not you that you contact the police and report the page.

You need to contact FB and ask that it be taken down as it appears it may be identity theft, However, you have given little information so that it is impossible to determine whether it is indeed identity theft, etc.
