My instagram and facebook account has been locked due to malicious activities. My personal information has been shared to loaning apps. After this, these numbers have been texting me regarding loans. I also suspect that this is linked to the unauthorized accessing of my instagram and FB. I feared that these can lead to identity theft such as the case of Mark Joseph Lontok.

Thank you for the response. I have recovered my account on Facebook by confirming my identity. I found a suspicious activity where a Payment Method was added. See the picture below. I did not add any payment method to my Facebook account. I hope that this could be a lead.
