Mark S. told a local television station about some of the troubles that his name had caused — not the least of which was having Facebook disable his account until he produced copies of his driver’s license, birth certificate and Indianapolis Bar Association license.
I have put a lot of energy into becoming an exceptional bankruptcy attorney and establishing my good name nationally. If you had Googled Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, you would have found me … Now my name isn’t mine any more.
To add insult to injury, his office is forced to field approximately “a dozen phone calls a day from people complaining about Facebook and demanding tech support.”
Then there are the friend requests; according to Mark S. there are about 500 of those a day – many from people in countries that do not speak English.
But it is not all doom and gloom for Mark S. After all, he is a bankruptcy attorney in an economic downturn – who has managed to score a mountain of free publicity.
