    I used one of the $50 worth of free FB ads vouchers from here a few days ago for a new fan page I made. I set it up to use my PayPal for payment (had to do this to use the voucher) which does not currently have any funds in it. I do, however, have my bank account linked to it which is why I am worried.

    I go away for about 4 days to come back and find that not only is the voucher completely used up, but it also charged another $75 that I didn't even plan on using. Now I am getting a message saying I have an outstanding balance and to pay it off.

    I did not authorize them to keep sending ads once the voucher ran out, but they did anyway. Am I going to be stuck paying for something I did not know would happen or is there a way I can get this balance removed?

    Help is appreciated.

    There is no way, as far as I know, to set your ad to stop once the voucher expires. It is your responsibility, since the stats are not always real-time, to calculate when you will have used all $50 and to pause your campaign accordingly.

    When you click "agree", you are allowing them to continue with the ads once your voucher is used up. That's why they take your payment information in advance. Always keep track of the ads via the email notification settings.

    Thanks for the prompt replies.

    My main concern is if I have no funds in my PayPal, but my bank account is linked to the PayPal account, can Facebook take money from my bank without my authorization?

    call your bank account right away trust me dont just wait, what you need to do is to tell them to not authorize that charge. I did that shit with paypal, those fuckers tried to get some money from my account and i called my bank and told them not to let them get any money, i also did it with tossabledigits.com , i called my bank and they took care of the problem.
