    Hi Fellow Forum Members,

    For the last few weeks ive been the target of a attack to my facebook page.

    I have a very succesfull Fan Page related to everything about my country. I have more than 200k fans with hi levels of interactions.

    After I started it 3 years ago, a lot of copycat pages tried to replicate the model without success.

    Most of the pictures i upload are sent by the picture owners to upload, they want me to do the shoutout or put a link to their portfolio. In this way , i get a lot of content and they get a lot of traffic and visibility in return.

    For the last few weeks ive been getting removal notices from facebook. They are removing my pictures sending me notifications in this format:

    Report #: 409723962513758
    Rights Owner: Zaida Javier
    Email: johnagretzky@elvisfan.com
    Copyrighted Work: A photo I took

    It has happened everyday for the last few weeks. Everyday they are removing a picture or two and sending me notifications that i may get banned or my page may be block due to copyright infrigment.

    It is always from a certain john a gretzy that is using different email domain.

    The issue is that i have contact with the REAL owners of the pictures and they are telling me that they havent reported anything and that i have all their permission to post it in my page.

    Also, everytime this happens i get a notification saying that im being blocked 3 days from posting as a penalty but somehow i can keep posting normally with my facebook profile.

    Obviously this is an attack ... probably from a competing page or someone with bad intentions .. but i cant seem to find a way to contact facebook regarding this matters .. to show them proof of pictures and permission from the rightfull picture owners.

    Any ideas o how to deal with this situation? I dont want to compromise my facebook page, so for the momento im not uploading any pictures from our fans (even though we have the permission) .. but this will definetly affect our reach ... which is pretty damn good now.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas or help you can provide!

    JH

    Try making a Facebook ads account and getting in contact from someone that way, tell them you want to start boosting posts but you have the above issue. They'll help because they want your business.
