Facebook will call me!

Categories Privacy

As an answer to my previous post about 1 million facebook accounts I bought for 5$, I got this invitation

Hi Bogomil,

We’d like to set up a call with you to discuss a recent blog post of yours. Could you please provide a time and a phone number that works with your schedule?

Thanks,
Platform Policy Team
Facebook

 

The funny fact is: it came to my facebook registered e-mail, not via this blog web form as usual.

I really hope they will fix the problem and will try to put in control app developers and their services, instead of trying to convince me to remove the blogpost.

Wish me good luck!

    Get yourself a lawyer before talking with Facebook.

    I hope this isn’t one of those stories that ends like “… and Bogomil was never heard from again”

    I would never respond to a mail in that category.

    If you do, don’t forget to record the call. It is unpleasant to be uncertain about something in a courtroom and it is the wrong place for inbound surprises.

    Unfortunately I think you are going to have troubles from these guys from Facebook. I will not be surprised if Facebook is also involved in this “market share”. Most probably. It`s profitable business. This is not the first case and for sure is not going to be the last. I think right now some FB managers are already jumping from their chairs in vast spread paranoia and shit on their pants by the fear not to loose their jobs and their good salaries. Your hope is natural and it is the right thing to do, but I have the odd feeling that they are gong to keep trying to push you to delete this blog post, rather than fix their applications development.

      “Most probably. It`s profitable business.”
      The guy just said he bought 1,000,000 lines of data for 5 bucks, how is that profitable to Facebook?

        How profitable is selling a million users for 5 bucks? HIGHLY profitable. How many times do you think that list is sold? Just once, to this guy? HAHAHAHHAAHAHAHA you are too funny.

    SUre, FB will call you for something that might affect them. However, try, just TRY, to get anything other than a bot letter from them if you need THEIR help. My sister had the email account associated with her FB account hacked and password changed, locking her out of her account. Their stupid “ask 3 friends” recovery process didn’t work, and all attempts to contact their customer (NO) service department were IGNORED. F*** you, Zuckerburg!

    And this is why I don’t have a facebook account : )

    I still think you’re being tricked by a reader. I mean, if you’re silly enough to pay five dollars for a list you could find yourself for free, then surely you’d respond to a phoney email….

    Thanks Bogomil!
