    I had a big problem with FB recently and I would like to know how to resolve and report what they did as it was a complete invasion of privacy as well as unlawful! I was trying to figure out how to place an ad. Instead of placing the ad I wanted, it wound up
    giving me “Likes”. I tried and tried to delete this ad and stop them from charging me, but Delete was greyed out and all I got was a HUGE runaround or non-response from their “customer support.” Eventually, my credit card expired, so at least they couldn’t charge me anymore! I had spent 2 days and then emails over 2 more months to try to resolve but got no where.

    Then, this is the really really bad part! It was my brother’s birthday. I sent him a Starbucks card! And … FACEBOOK STOLE MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION FROM THAT TRANSACTION and USED IT for more of these ad charges that the system would not allow me to cancel!!!

    There was a glitch in their system that did not let me delete the ad,the customer service was non-existent for this and then the just TOOK my cc info from the GIFT and applied it to more ad charges! I immediately cancelled the card and disputed the charges and tried again for the last 2 weeks to reach someone about this only to get canned answers to how they charge for ads and where I can find their “policies!!” from some robot named Declan!

    NO ON addressed the fact that they stole cc info that was meant for the purpose of buying a gift and used it towards disputed charges on ads that the system prevented me from deleting. Is this not just WRONG? Should they be allowed to take your cc info and apply it towards whatever THEY WANT?
    ads. They should not es allowed to do this! Anyone have any suggestions
    on how to resolve?
