Facebook is a real stickler when it comes to impersonating others. Not only is it against the law in California to do so, but the Social Network doesn't want anyone confusing anyone with anyone else. The problem is, sometimes more than one person have the same name. Such is the case of Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook had this problem recently with a few Kate Middleton's who weren't actually Duchesses, or even pretending to be the famous royal bride, they were just people named "Kate Middleton." Now we find the case of Mark Zuckerberg - Indianapolis bankruptcy attorney.

All Facebook reports that simply because Indianapolis Zuck has the same name as the CEO of Facebook, he keeps getting turned away from having an account.

The attorney says, "I was originally denied an account with Facebook two years ago because of my name, and I had to send them copies of my driver’s license, birth certificate and Indianapolis Bar Assn. license just to get them to believe that I exist and to allow me to set up my page…  Now my name isn’t mine anymore… We haven’t gotten an answer from Facebook yet, and I hope it’s all just a misunderstanding on their part."

On his website IAmMarkZuckerberg.com, he explains that he’s not trying to impersonate Facebook’s top man, he's just a guy who happens to have the same name, and wants to use the website like everyone else.
