“OLIVIA” on Facebook

In my previous post, I had ended with a note, that Ill soon post an update; here’s one that I had squeezed into that update:

An Update- 5th May, 2010: I have not received any reply since then even on the email that was sent on 29/04/2010. Well, I would have been damned if they had responded to.

Wish Facebook a Very GOOD LUCK..

…………………………………………………………

Ever since I had posted that write on my blog, I would see traffic on this post particularly for people trying to signup with their Single Names; could have been genuine, could have been otherwise too. I figured out I was not the only one trying to get this fixed.

A few days later I received this email; note, how they had figured out that I was going around with my name as READ OLIVIA in Facebook.

  • I had a Facebook Badge on my Blog account
  • My posts were also published in my Facebook Page- OLIVIA
  • There were auto- updates of my posts in my account (read: readolivia)

So, I assume it wasn’t an uphill task..

The email:

Hi Read,

It appears that you have forgotten to attach the required document to your reply. Please reply to this email and attach a scanned image of your government issued photo ID. Be sure to include all of our previous correspondence so that we can refer to your original inquiry. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Even though I had wanted to maintain my claim of having sent all docs as was required to, I picked up my earlier mail that I had sent; that was being referred to here and re- forwarded checking the attachments a zillion times- this time round. The intent was to get the name corrected and not fight out about who was right and otherwise. I certainly held nothing against Facebook moreso, that it was because of this community that I could link up with my long lost friends.. I was happy; wanted to celebrate now.. If only my name was changed to my correct name- OLIVIA..

This morning, while I switched on my computer and logged on to my gmail account, a mail were sat reading this:

Hi Olivia,

My reply to them

Like a wondrous Thanks..

  • With Facebook, I realized a few lost friends and some still very close existing friends- they are all located in different places and countries.
  • It was important for me to maintain my profile with you but at times it hurt since it was in a different name..

Not anymore

~Regards

Olivia
