Is it illegal to set up a fake facebook account? A comment was made on a bar website that the owner should pay his taxes.

Response by Lawyer Michael Kotik. I do not believe it is illegal to setup a fake profile. However, what you do with that profile can sometimes result in criminal charges.
* Please note, you should probably avoid setting up a fake profile, for it will likely cause problems for you down the road.
