Locked out of Meta Quest 2: provide work email

Honored Guest

Header says it all. I was locked out of my device after spending roughly $300 in hardware and another $200+ in software. 
I was requested to send my ID (drivers license) which I did twice. Then was locked out of my meta quest 2 with a requirement to provide a work email that has never been associated with my account. I am a nurse at a hospital and would never link my work email to a luxury device due to personal and patient privacy. I was told it will take 5 business days (this happened Friday night of Memorial Day weekend) so I assume it will not be resolved for at least 7-10 actual days. Unacceptable. I was told there will be no compensation or any form of refund despite me complying with all requests from Meta. 
Absolutely asinine.

I have already done so and spent nearly an hour on your support messaging, because your company cannot get a telephone support line together.  I was told that it would take at least 5 business days (meaning this will not be addressed for at least 10 business days. And I was told that there would be no compensation, reimbursement, etc. which is unacceptable.
