    I know is weird but yea, I got a call from them about Facebook marketing. They said I had filled some form a couple of months ago and are calling about that. I was given a choice to ask for a Facebook Account Manager (probably the similar thing we have for Adwords )

    Just curious if anyone here has a FB account manager and is it worth it? They said its free for 1 month and I should be spending more than £30/day so it should be alright.

    Yeah, sounds fishy. I have been spending much more then $30 per day and never got a call from anyone!
    Be careful.

    An account manager for $30 a day? Sounds like a scam to me.

    Usually they don't bat an eye lash at you for under $10k/month

    Yeah, they called me as well, they said Mark was busy at the moment so they forwarded me to his secretary or something. It was a really nice chat

    It's not FB calling you. It's just a marketing company who will run your ads for you and bill you. They're full of shit and avoid them like the plague. FB don't need to go cold calling in the UK!

    Actually I agree. I used to run ads with them and they called me to try and get me to re-run ads, offered me the same deal of a manager (although mine was free). They confirmed my ads and full details as I never deal with anybody who cannot give me my details lol, even then I call them back - is that paranoid ;)

    You guys realize that you've basically laid out a nice method to make cash and then called what some of you your selves do a scam right? Haha

    Guys, It doesn't look like a fake. They guy who called also knew the admins on my other pages as well. Got a follow up email from xxxxxxx@sales.fb.com and they have a contact number. Think will call them up next week.

    For a couple of months had been spending around £50/day just to get more likes on my pages and have stopped them last month. They could be looking at some way to get me back on the spending streak.

    IDK I use proxies
    I remember there was an ad by Facebook about free 1 week phone support (course) for marketers (not now , it was there a month ago)
    I am pretty sure that's where the call came from.
    I hope you applied for them ?
    Feel lucky that you have been invited , use this opportunity to bank.
    Good luck man.

    Sounds really fishy to me. If it sounds too good to be true, it is..

    More than likely a scam.
    Be careful! :)
