(Newser) – Life hasn't always been easy for Indianapolis bankruptcy attorney Mark Zuckerberg since his online presence was eclipsed by the founder of Facebook. Not only has he become a lot harder to find via Google, his Facebook account—which he was only allowed to have after providing the company with legal documents—was disabled out of the blue this week, ZDNet reports.

"I have put a lot of energy into becoming an exceptional bankruptcy attorney and establishing my good name nationally," Zuckerberg complains at IAmMarkZuckerberg.com. "If you had Googled Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, you would have found me. No one else. Mark S. Zuckerberg, bankruptcy attorney. If you had repeated the search two years later, you wouldn’t have found me at all. Now my name isn’t mine any more." The attorney says he receives about a dozen phone calls a day from people with complaints about Facebook. (Click to read about another unusual ban.)
