Facebook has pulled the plug on Indiana bankruptcy attorney Mark Zuckerberg's internet Facebook account.

According to the local Zuckerberg, the social networking site cited false identity as the reason.

Indianapolis attorney Mark S. Zuckerberg has the same name as Facebook founder Mark S. Zuckerberg.

"I was originally denied an account with Facebook two years ago because of my name, and I had to send them copies of my driver's license, birth certificate and Indianapolis Bar Association license just to get them to believe that I exist and to allow me to set up my page," said Attorney Mark Zuckerberg.

The local Mark Zuckerberg is an expert on consumer bankruptcy and home foreclosures. He has written several books on consumer legal topics.

Now he is waiting to hear from Facebook to find out if he will be able to get back on.

"I hope it's all just a misunderstanding on their part. All of my friends are upset with me because they think I de-friended them — I've had to do a lot of explaining. The good news is, my in-box is not filled up with the hundreds of friend requests I was getting on a daily basis from people thinking I was the other Mark Zuckerberg."
