Desperate help needed! Can't get rid of old Facebook accounts (not as simple as you think)

I have several VERY old facebook pages that I simply must get rid of. I don't know the email associated with the accounts. I don't know the username associated with the accounts. I don't know the password associated with the accounts.

When I make requests of Facebook they keep sending me auto-responses always asking for info I don't have to be able to pull down the account but I don't have any of this information.

I've Googled everything I know how to Google and all the responses that come up require at least one of the pieces of info I don't have.

Any ideas? Any thoughts would be appreciated. And please, no cute responses. I have info that is damaging me in the professional domain on several of these accounts and for me this is no longer a joke.

1. without the proper information

I am not sure how Facebook can be of any help. you will need at a minimum the email and/or username. otherwise how do you expect them to find the account? you're going to have to come up with something to help them identify the account and yourself as the owner...they're not going to do anything without it.

2. Have you tried reputation.com?

I know nothing about them, I've only heard the ads, but maybe they could help. They have a phone number and a chat link on their main page. Maybe they could tell you if they can help or not.

3. The only hope I can give you is: check eack of your browsers and look for saved

user name and passwords. In Firefox Tools->Options->Security Tab-> click on saved passwords. Other browsers have similar functions.

The other possibility is on this link (which your virus software may issue a warning).

Protected Storage PassView v1.63: Recover Protected Storage passwords

This site is somewhat dated (depending on your OS, you didn't say).
Checkout Mail PassView and references.

8. Then try to google your actual name and hope it finds old links. Also

it's too late to tell you not to use your real name for your online name.
I'm just quessing.

6. Did you try here?

https://www.facebook.com/recover.php

Particularly, the "I can't identify my account" link

Be sure you are logged out of FaceBook when trying the link.

7. Can you get to your old FaceBook page while not logged in to FaceBook?

Try this.

Log out of FaceBook, if you are still logged in.
Go here www.facebook.com
Search for your name
Once you find yourself, go to the Info link and see what info is there.
Does it show the Email address?
