Section 66A IT Act

Is a fake account on facebook without any criminal activity or criminal intention, without any real person's picture or without anyone's personal details illegal?? Is fake account illegal itself, or it will be illegal if it is done with criminal intent or to do wrong to someone?

Dear Friend,

your query itself is very vague.If you acknowledge that account is fake meaning it is not opened by the person who is projected to be owner of the account.Many issues are involved in ascertaining fake profiles and even you have not posted picture or have any criminal intention it may be termed as identity theft BUT all depends on circumstantial evidence.
