    To be honest I do not know how to react to situations like these.

    What's the worst could happen if we don't reply?


    Edit: To those of you pointing at me, it is NOT me.

    Get sued for everything you have and then some. The best advice you will get is: contact a lawyer that knows his shit when it comes to legal stuff in the online environment.

    Reply and tell them you will stop what you are doing or the next thing your friend might receive is a court summons.

    Bleh, no need for a lawyer, just follow the advice of the next few posters and you can't go wrong.

    Step one: post on a public forum telling everyone about it

    Step two: get in deeper shit

    You should either lawyer up or comply to the C&D and stop what you are doing.

    Anytime I've gotten those, I usually Shut down the site that I was operating and sent back an email apologizing and showing that I took corrective action. That's all they really want. They want you to C&D!

    I wouldn't worry, had quite a few of these back in the old scraper/markov days.

    The C&D will have some instructions. If they simply want you to C&D, with no further instructions, then stop what you are doing and you wont have any further problems. If you want to piss them off, ignore it and keep doing what you are doing, but risk getting sued. Is he American? If you do choose to keep doing what you are doing, get him to transfer any of his assets into someone elses name.

    Create too many accounts.
    Add too many friends.
    Message too many people.
    Create too many groups.
    Create too many pages.
    Join too many groups.
    Start too many discussions.
    Start too many events.
    Invite too many people to something.
    Force people to like your page via script.

    The list goes on and on...

    So will they delete your accounts for those type of things? Or will they just tell you to stop?

    It could be either one. We don't work for Facebook so we don't know which thing they will do, or what they base that decision on. Most of their limits can only be bypassed by scripts or software, so if you are just being a regular user and you stop when you get an automated popup warning, you have no worries. But they could very likely delete your accounts for those types of things. That isn't what Facebook is for. They do not want that.

    Interesting. I assumed they just closed the account(s) and moved on.

    I'd like to ask... How in hell they reach your friend in the real life and delivered the C&D letter? I mean, if we are doing Black Hat we HAVE to do it right and cover our shit, don't we?

    I mean, we have to be invisible to the system. That includes VPS, Proxy, whatever that cover you, fake paypal verified shit, VBA's, netspend VCC, etc. Sometimes because we are greedy and we don't want to loose some cents in commissions we don't get cover, but bloody hell if you are going to do illegal shit under your real identity you're just A dumb ass.... and anyone that says that BlackHat it's not illegal, well that person is not doing really blackhat xD

    I hope your friend get out of this situation without mayor damage. Good luck
