INDIANAPOLIS, May 11 (UPI) -- An Indianapolis lawyer said Facebook has de-friended him because he has the same name as the social media site's co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

Indianapolis bankruptcy attorney Mark S. Zuckerberg said Facebook pulled his account Monday, citing identity fraud as the reason, The Indianapolis Star reported Wednesday.

Zuckerberg said this isn't the first time he's had a run-in with Facebook. In 2009, the media site turned down a request for an account with Zuckerberg attempting to prove his identity with copies of his driver's license, birth certificate and Indianapolis Bar Association license.

"I hope it's all just a misunderstanding on their part," Zuckerberg said.

"All my friends are upset with me because they think I de-friended them," said Zuckerberg, who claims a reputation as a national authority on consumer bankruptcy and home foreclosures. "I've had to do a lot of explaining."
