Facebook account has been hacked

Last Modified: 2021-03-15
It appears that someone has taken exception to some of my posts and has hacked my Facebook account. I cannot logged into my account and all the online instructions point to email addresses that I do not recognize plus no where do I see my cell number for MFA. I did receive a series of email alerts from security@facebookmail.com. Is this real? Any ideas how I can recover my account?
