Someone is sending spam messages from my account in Facebook. How do I get back control of it?

(I'm asking this just as an example question to get things going by the way... I do know what I'd do if this happened!) – x3ja Jul 1 '10 at 21:27

Change password. If you can't access because the spammer changed your password contact facebook's support.

If the spammer is an application you may revoke its rights to access your account from your account settings page.
