A child my wife and I have sponsored for several years has contacted us on Facebook via an account he created to impersonate me.  He has his own account it seems, but he chose to impersonate me and friend contacts on my wife's Facebook page (mine is locked down pretty tight).  

I messaged him directly and asked him to stop and he deleted the account.  Now he is using different first names, but the same last name as ours.  I reached out to Facebook and they did nothing.  I've waited a few weeks, hoping he will stop. He has not, just opening different accounts and friend requesting people. It seems like a cry for attention, but honestly, this is no way to do it.  

I have had a few embarrassing conversations with people explaining the situation that "I" was not the one friend requesting and one couple is outright avoiding me because they never met me and apparently "I" friend requested the wife and it was not wanted...I feel about 2 feet tall. I am sure I can explain it, but why am I having to? This child knows better, and I want to cancel my sponsorship.  How do i begin this process?
