Man Sues Facebook for $500K Because They Shut Down His Account

31 Jan

A Staten Island man claims that Facebook shut off access to his personal photos and his friends overseas when it closed his account for no reason. He asks for $500,000 and the restoration of his account in his lawsuit.

Mustafa Fteja, 39, had 340 friends on the site, which averages out to $1,470 per friend if his suit succeeds. An immigrant from Montenegro 19 years ago, Fteja claims that Facebook was one of his primary ways to communicate with them.

He told The New York Post, “I’m not doing this for money. I’m doing this for justice. I know one thing — I didn’t do anything. I didn’t violate anything.” He claims to have contacted the company several times, but only received a form letter in response, claiming he violated the company’s user agreement.
