Made fake facebook account just so I could use the stupid service
The requirement that you link up a social media account was a horrible decision that Dwolla made, but it is one they've since reversed themselves on and that is no longer necessary.
Because Dwolla's fees are so low, each instance of fraud costs them more than the revenues they get from dozens or hundreds of legit customers, even just including administration costs. So these actions are a balancing act to allow them to be able to continue provding a cash-like ACH intermediary service.
There is this concept called The Designers Holy Triangle ("Fast, Cheap, Good -- Pick Any Two")
We need a modification of that for describing most of The Bitcoin Ecosystem:
Fast, Cheap, Good
Pick Just One!
To be fair, without Dwolla Bitcoin would not have risen to where it is today. It would help if Dwolla were to be around tomorrow as well. If they need to take these precautions against fraud, it's probably because these measures were absolutely necessary for their organization to move forward to be able to compete against PayPal, Square, Google Wallet, ISIS (NFC), etc.
