    I know it is against the TOS to sell fake likes and followers but should you fear any legal action. If I resell a dripfeed social signal service and advertise it, will I get legal threats?

    I don't think so. I would worry more about using their company logos to advertise, things like that, those are usually trademarked.

    Hmm well wouldn't the name "Facebook" be trademarked as well? Can I even say "Buy Facebook Likes"?

    In a way BHW is not the best place to ask legal advice. Also when approaching a lawyer, one might say dont, and the other would say go for it. Just put "Buy Social Signals" and dont go using their logos as was mentioned above.

    Trick is to not let them be able to persecute you even if they were able to find your so called personal information.
    Nothing to worry about if you do not give them any information to make you worried.
