Sometimes, they are not. One man, seemingly based in the Philippines, appears to have changed his name on Facebook to Sayoc Cesar, reversing the suspect’s name, and seemingly has several Instagram accounts with variations of the name. They have zero or 1-2 photos, a tell-tale sign they are fake profiles.

Quartz reached out to the man, but has not heard from him.

Facebook said that Sayoc’s accounts were immediately disabled when he was named, and that its teams started proactively looking for impersonator accounts. The company is relying on technology and user reports to take them down. “There is absolutely no place on our platforms for people who attempt such horrendous acts,” a spokesperson said. Facebook will “continue to remove content that praises or supports the bombing attempt or the suspect as soon as we’re aware.”
