Government system or stealing information

Other answer:

Daniel:
The Police can but the FBI Only does cases about Government system or Stealing personal information
Robert J:
Actually "Hacking" (or really "cracking") online accounts is generally impossible unless the user has a weak password like just a name.

Other than that, fraudsters steal logins & password by "social engineering" – phishing scams with emails that try to get people to enter all their info into a fake look-alike web page.

That is *not* hacking facebook / ebay / paypal / your bank etc., that's just the 21st century version of confidence tricksters & scam artists – con men..

In other words, YOU either used a stupidly weak password or YOU typed your password in to a fake web site after being taken in by a trick email.
(One of the most fundamental rules of internet/computer security is _never_ click anything in an email, unless you explicitly asked for that specific email to be sent to you).

That's why the FBI / Police etc. are not interested in your case – they want the people that set up the scams and fake emails & they have millions of examples of those to go at.

They also work with other international agencies – and they do catch the people / gangs involved.

They have way more important things to do then to concern themselves over your " little " facebook account….

So change your password…..do not store your password on your computer….do not give out your password…make your facebook password unique to facebook …( a lot of people use the same password over and over for all the places they go to )

Xn|⌡ЖJ¤P:
local police handle that.
FBI only deals with cases crossing borders.
next time, choose a stronger password…
