Doesn’t a lawsuit have to meet certain criteria before it’s filed? We cannot believe that an attorney or court of law actually found merit in this loser’s lawsuit.
Mustafa Fteja said his account was disabled in September, cutting off his access to friends and family around the world, as well as to personal memories and photos.
“That was how I stayed in touch with people,” said Fteja, 39, who estimated he had about 340 friends when he was inexplicably cut off. He said he has pressed the company for months to find out what happened, but to no avail.
“You call, they don’t answer the phone. You write, they don’t reply,” he said — leaving him no choice but to go to court to get what he considers his property back.
“I lived in a communist country where people had no rights. This looks the same to me,” the Montenegro native said. “I’m not doing this for money. I’m doing this for justice,” he said.
Fteja, who filed his suit against the $50 billion company in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday, said he has been using Facebook for about three years, mainly to keep in touch with family and friends in Montenegro, Albania, Germany and Austria.
He found out he had been cut off on Sept. 24, when he tried to sign on to his account, but couldn’t. After a few more attempts, the site told him his account had been “disabled.”
He tried to find out why, but only got a form e-mail back two weeks later telling him he had somehow violated the terms of the Facebook agreement.
The Web site typically cuts off users if they’ve posted objectionable content, or are suspected of spamming.
“I know one thing — I didn’t do anything. I didn’t violate anything,” Fteja said, adding he wouldn’t be suing if he had.
“Did somebody hack my account? I don’t know. If it’s that somebody hacked my account, Facebook should help me. If you have a problem with your AOL login, AOL helps you. Not Facebook,” he said.
Since the site didn’t inform his list of friends that his account had been disabled, many assumed he had de-friended them. “I don’t know if you’re mad at me or what’s going on,” one female friend told him in a voicemail.
His suit notes that Fteja is Muslim, and charges Facebook with religious discrimination. “You don’t treat people like that,” he said. “They make a lot of money from the people. Why treat your customers like that?”
Religious discrimination? You’re not in it for the money?? And he still wants his account restored??? GTFOHWTS.
