Facebook Fraud?

Connecticut's top lawyer wants Facebook to reveal how it detects and disables fake accounts after a state lawmaker complained that her identity was misused in a scam to solicit money from her friends.

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen said Monday that Rep. Kim Rose alleged that Facebook did not respond quickly to take down the site after repeated complaints that her name and photographs were being used without her permission.
