    So I have a Facebook account I use for myvegas only. It's got over a hundred friends just from the game (I don't actually know any of them).. Well Facebook now says the account is locked for security and wants me to identify pictures of my friend to verify my identity, the problem is i don't really know any of these people! It looks like you used to be able to just do a google image search and match pics and names but Facebook got a little smarter and used pics the person was tagged in, not profile pics and there is also a time limit.

    Anyone have a suggestion on how to beat the photo verification?

    Nope. I don't know why Facebook cares, but you're not the first to have this problem.

    This happened when my husband got on facebook for myvegas -- it happens when you add to many friends at one time. They locked him out for 30 days because he could not identify enough friends by photo. After he got back on after 30 days he didn't add any more new friends.

    It also happens when one person has multiple accounts, as it's strictly against the TOS. They'll lock it out if "myVegas" is used in the player's name also.

    FYI if this happens to anyone else, I found a link where you can send in a scan of your ID.. A day after I did that they unlocked it for me..
