Someone used my email address to open a FB acct

Some random stranger (as far as I can tell) used one of my email addresses to open a Facebook account. They used a suggestive picture (not of me!) as a profile pic. It totally creeped me out. Because it used my email address, I was able to access the account, change the password, and then deactivate it. I wanted it gone altogether, though, so I wrote to Facebook and told them to please get rid of it, it wasn't mine. I don't know if they ever did.

Now that I think of it, I don't remember how I was able to get the initial password to access the account. I must have used the "I forgot my password" feature.
