MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is suing Facebook for defamation following “repeated fake adverts from [problem]mers it refuses to stop publishing”

 

In a statement on MoneySavingExpert, Lewis wrote: “I get about five messages a day from people saying, ‘I’ve just seen your Bitcoin ad and wanted to check it.’ If that is the number who get through to me, how many more must be just taken in?”

 

Well i have seen these adverts have you.

I very nearly lifted a floorboard to take out some of my secret stash after thinking well he is a chap you can trust.

I came so close but nailed the floorboard back down again.

The phone did not stop ringing for weeks.Trying to entice the old owl.From all over the world.

Has anyone else nearly fallen into the trap.

Or maybe fallen straight through it.

Just wondering as you do.

Well news is coming out fast now.

Martin Lewis to sue Facebook over fake ads which empties peoples pockets out of thousands .

The commentator and financial journalist is claiming defamation over allegations that the site is publishing fake adverts using his image causing vulnerable people to hand over thousands of pounds to criminals.

 

He said the company had hosted more than 50 of the fake ads and that it had failed to act because it was motivated by "greed".

 

Trying to prise money out of the old owl is hard to do,nearly though.

Next Predator waiting in the wings though.

Be careful out there.

facebook says that all he has to do is contact them and they will look into the ads.

Yeah, right. What about not taking money from crooks in the first place and they wouldnt be in this position. Greed and more greed.

He has sued before and won so should be a walkover and I am dying to know waht the defence will be

Bookface's defence will probably be along the lines of... "Well, they told us they were Martin Lewis and we had no reason to doubt them :noidea:"
