Facebook and Instagram now have a problem with fraud Libra ads



While Facebook is struggling to agree on the crypto project Vågen, a wave of fake Libra accounts has come up online, including on Facebook itself.

According to a report by The Washington Post on July 22, nearly a dozen counterfeit sides have circulated over Facebook and the social app sharing app's Instagram, posing as official entities for the much talked-about digital currency.

Facebook removed the scam of scams only after being notified by the Washington Post

As said in the report, a number of the fake Facebook and Instagram accounts were removed on July 22 just after The Washington Post reported about them to Facebook. Elka Looks, Communications Manager at Calibra, stated that Facebook removes ads and pages that violate their policies as they become aware of them.

Some of the Libra who was invited were offered to participate in a pre-sale of not yet launched Vågen coins at a discount, while many others included Facebook's logo, photos of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg or Vågen's official marketing materials, the report reports.

A clear example of Vågen's fakes online is the Buylibracoins.com website, which copies the Vågen logo from the official Web site Libra.org, and offers users to create an account and invest in Libra with major cryptos like Bitcoin (BTC). While the site's Instagram page is supposedly removed, the site remains available at press time.

Fake ads underermine trust in Facebook and Libra

Eswar Pras, University pointed out a deep irony by Facebook itself is used as the platform that can undermine confidence in its cryptocurrency project. Outlines trust problems as the biggest obstacle for Facebook on its way to introducing the global cryptocurrency, Prasad said in the report: [19659011] "Facebook has a vast worldwide network and a tremendous economic muscle … But the only way the Libra will work well an exchange medium is if everyone can trust it. And that's the big question right now: if there's going to be enough confidence in Facebook. "

Facebook eased crypto ads rules a month before Libra White Paper

I early 2018, Facebook broke the news by announcing the ban on cryptocurrency and introductory coin-related ads on its platform in a move to ban advertising using "misleading or deceptive marketing practices."

However, the social media giant eased the restrictions in May 2019 , about a month before they released the white paper for their own cryptocurrency project Vågen 18 June.

Meanwhile, Damian Collins, a senior official of the British Parliament, has recently argued that Vågen will be open to massive scams, as it would not be created and controlled by Facebook and unavailable by anyone outside a "Facebook enclosed garden.
