Last night I watched this video by Veritasium on Facebook Fraud. It is pretty eye opening. I had recently run a like campaign for one of my new ventures www.stockmarketshirts.com and it appears all of the likes I received came from click farms, only one person has engaged with my page.
On average the people that liked my page had an additional 2000+ likes. This is absurd, no one likes this many things. I have been a user since 2004 and only have 67 likes.
I will be filling with Facebook Support for a refund and will keep y'all posted on any outcome.
Here is the complete list of people, location and number of likes each page had. The campaign cost me $25 to run.
