If you are required ID for fakebook verification, you would think Voting could require the same.!

I was given a 30-day ban from Facebook for replying to a post that stated if Americans didn't vote the country would turn into socialism. I merely posted in response.... lazy Americans. Get off your asses.

We got exactly the same email you guys got about the trademark infringement. (we registrered a domain name with facebook shopping in it). Do you have a reply to the email you responded with? Would love to see if this is a scam or not.

Thank you!

No I haven't heard a peep from them since my reply. But it was right about the beginning of the Covid craze and they had sent all their employees home. I've heard nothing since and I'm somewhat disappointed I'm looking forward to it LOL

Hey, I can confirm that this is not a scam, though it very much looks like one. They didn't respond at first, you must send them a separate email with your domain name in the subject. If you do, they will pass you over to a vendor called Appdetex, which specializes in brand protection online. There is almost no mention of Facebook's partnership with Appdetex available from any reliable source, guess you just have to take their word for it. I didn't, so I checked in with my friends who work at Facebook to verify whether all of this is legit and it turns out it actually is.

So conclusion: Not a scam, just shamefully unprofessional.

Yep ... I can confirm this as well. I know all about Appdetex. The Facebook department that sent the email is run by a Margie Milam. She's a lawyer licensed in California and Idaho. Her husband is Ben Milam, also a lawyer licensed in California and Idaho, and he is EVP and general counsel for Appdetex. Convenient huh? Appdetex has some proprietary software or something that sends WHOIS requests by the thousands. I had only registered this domain, had not uploaded anything at all and I got that email just 11 days after registering. And I STILL haven't heard back from them LOL

I'm currently in Facebook jail for 3 days because I violated community standards all because I was standing up about the COVID19 and how people don't abide by the law. I said people are inbred if they can't follow directions, but yet I saw people posting kitten crushing videos and their Facebook still remains safe. I got put in Facebook jail for three days just for saying the word inbred and white trash, and I'm white myself.
