A 30-year-old woman in the UK has officially changed her name to her Facebook pseudonym Jemmaroid Von Laalaa in a desperate bid to log into her profile which was suspended by the social networking site.
Jemma Rogers, a holistic therapist from south-east London, set up a profile on Facebook in 2008.
She used the pseudonym Jemmaroid Von Laalaa on her Facebook profile in order to avoid annoying friend requests from old friends and strangers.
However, last month she got a message from Facebook asking her to send identification to prove it was a genuine name and account.
She doctored an image of her bank card, hoping to trick Facebook into thinking her family name was in fact Von Laalaa, Metro.co.uk reported.
One day later, Jemma's account was suspended and she could not get in.
In a desperate bid to get the profile back, she changed her name by deed poll and is now officially Jemmaroid Von Laalaa.
However, despite her extreme efforts, she's still locked out of her account even after sending over her new ID to Facebook.
"I know I've been a complete moron, but Facebook are being ridiculous. I've been locked out of my account for five weeks now and have lost all of my photos, messages and precious memories," said Jemma.
Jemma has even had to order bank cards and a driving license with her new name on them.
After sending the documents to Facebook, she has received automated responses saying they will 'look into' her problem.
