According to CNN's article, 83 Million Facebook Accounts Are Fakes and Dupes, Facebook is planning on searching out accounts that go against their terms and conditions and shutting them down. According to the article, Facebook's chief security officer said, "On Facebook we have a really large commitment in general to finding and disabling false accounts. Our entire platform is based on people using their real identities."
If Facebook disables one of your accounts, they will keep anyone from being able to see the information on it online, but they will keep all of the information in their database. And they will prevent you from being able to open a new account without their explicit permission.
If Facebook is cracking down, this might be a good time to shut down any duplicate accounts you have, before Facebook penalizes you for it.
