    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

    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! :)
