    Hey guys,

    This FB page is attempting to scam guys like us by offering fake free coupons for FB Ads, Google Ads, Bing / Yahoo Ads. When you attempt to click get coupon they redirect you to their affiliate pages like 1&1 where you can technically get the coupon. However it's just straight lying to us so they can get commission.

    it's a con against internet marketers. let's teach them a lesson

    As such is this game we play. Fortunes gained, lest fortunes be lost, depend on maintaining vigilant thought.

    Don't get fooled again. The Free anything, except directly from a user, is the same as "You're The 10000000th Visitor"

    I love you, I do, but the guy who did that probably learned that method from a black hat forum.

    @Lake Forest, I agree. I only clicked on their page because I saw it on an FB AD. I'm pretty sure FB is not aware of the Con.

    How many facebook pages do you have? I bet it's a ton.

    Imagine if someone flagged one of yours, would you put up 1 new page, or 10 new pages?

    I've tried flagging, and it was straight up fighting off a hydra

    Not trying to suggest you don't move forward, all I'm saying is 1. It's so tough to voice anything on Facebook if it's making them money, and 2. Facebook is so unresponsive to complaints :(

    Why do you have the need to jeopardize this persons income? If you know he's making commissions as fellow blackhatters you should know he's just trying to make a few bucks and accept that rather than being a douche and flagging his method.

    You didn't fall for it and it doesn't affect you so just leave it alone
