    If you provide buyer details, it will be wurst, it will be no good for you or buyers. They will know how much you made, they will know buyers personal information, they can build a case...

    Why would FB ask for the source code? Post the email, edit out your details.

    you shouldn't respond....they are just trying to use that against you in court.....you just need to take it down and lay low. expect them to send another but i wouldn't give them the info otherwise they can sue you for that amount. right now they have no idea how much you made so they don't have much to go on. they are just trying to bully like FB does best.

    I guest your competitor sent you that email. If you give him source code and buyer details, he can run a business without lifting a finger

    Heh. Asking for buyer information and source code, a nice red flag that it's a competitor and not a legit email.

    Why would Facebook want the source code when they have an army of developers at their disposal... like others have said sounds like a competitor trying it on.

    A letter for a letter. Send a latter back saying you don't give a fu**.

    On a serious note, just don't reply. That's what most people suggest. pretend you never received the letter.

    If you don't live in The USA I doubt they will do anything to you. As others said don't reply anything, they will forget about you.

    Emails can be easily spoofed.
    Post a screenshot of the email for us to have a look at.

    I'd check the mail headers and see where it came from for real first off. If it is real, and even if it's not, your best bet is to just ignore it honestly. They either have something on you or they don't, and nothing you say is going to change that in your favor any. The only thing responding can do is provide them with further insight into your operation so they can stop anyone else from replicating it, or worse, use it against you in some sort of lawsuit.

    That's exactly what I was thinking lol, Facebook might ask for the amount you made or purchase quanitity details but the buyer infomation is quite specific and exactly what a competitor would be looking for lol.

    First of all take your site down and then if you feel like replying say them that you have still not made any sale or else just don't reply them. If you closely check email details i think you will know if its a fake mail.

    But frankly this sounds more like a competitor than FB.
