    Facebook Advertising Scam

    Two months ago we used a "free coupon" for a one time free ad on FACEBOOK. They hvae been billing our debit card $25 a week ever since and refuse to stop doing so - we have sent all the information they require to stop the billing but they continue doing so. Be cautious when dealing with FACEBOOK.

    Is Facebook.com a scam itself

    Hello all,
    Like many i am also a user of Facebook.com, But recently (since they were forced to withdraw their now ToS which allowed them to withhold information your friends gave them access to (even if you removed yourself from facebook)) there have been new ways to obtain your information.
    These are not through advertisements but through the small notification box (the button that looks like a sign post),
    Two which i have encountered so far are;

    Your friend has answered the question "Do you think (Name) has had a one night stand?"

    and

    "
    (Your Friends Name) has faced some errors when checking your profile View the errors message"

    Of course in clicking these links you have to allow facebook to obtain your information or the owners of the application to obtain your information.

    This is just my two cents

    Facebook quiz scam?

    The advertisement shows that you can make money from making Facebook quizzes, http://boston.*****slist.org/gbs/wri/1257009102.html
    It gives the link to
    http://www.socialstartuphiring.com/j...ial.php?id=bos
    and if you register with them, they give you a link at login.appbank.com
    Then you can create facebook quizzes to get money.
    Is this a scam? Are they phishing facebook passwords?

    Thanks!

    Facebook is a Playground for Scammers!!!

    I think facebook is becoming a very dangerous place.

    JackWeinzierl
    What a beautiful day here in Dallas. Let's connect on facebook too if we haven't already at http://facebook.com/jackweinzierl
    ---------------------------

    This is why I would tell folks to be very careful who they hook-up with online!
    Jack Weinzierl’s business partner Tim Darnell was removed from the prison ministry in Texas for very good reason. The e-mail I sent to law enforcement should be very enlightening.

    Sent: Tuesday, August 04, 2009 11:18 AM

    To: 'rclark@collincountytx.gov'; 'mdanderson@collincountytx.gov'; 'cruckel@collincountytx.gov'; 'ppalmisano@collincountytx.gov'; 'sheriffbox@collincountytx.gov'; 'leirer@cottonwoodcreek.org'
    Subject: Tim Darnell of Advantage Conferences Prison Ministry

    To Whom it May Concern,

    You have a Mr. Timothy Spencer Darnell leading prison ministry. This very dangerous and dishonest individual should not have any contact with any inmates under any circumstances. He is a serial scammer who has defrauded hundreds of people over twenty years and who has been involved in numerous questionable court cases and very serious threats.

    The first thing you should know is he is not a citizen of the United States by choice. http://www.scribd.com/doc/6723166/sovereignaff1 Darnell wrote that to weasel out of a legitimate lawsuit filed by one of the hundreds of reps he has defrauded that was trying to recover their losses. When Darnell wants to frighten off people he has defrauded he sends out sickening threatening letters like these to silence those he has harmed. http://mysite.verizon.net/resurlf0/advantageconferencestruth/id10.html

    Darnell threatened fellow church members from Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church and the McKinney police had to be contacted. Curtis Harrison was the attorney for his victims. Darnell was told by the police and that attorney to stop making threats. His testimony concerning that is in the document attached. If he had continued the DA would have gotten involved and possibly filed criminal charges. As he knew he could no longer make overt threats without risking jail time, he fabricated allegations that he was receiving death threats from me and being stalked by me. http://mysite.verizon.net/resurlf0/advantageconferencestruth/id46.html I turned myself in to the Allen Police and demanded they investigate, but they could not do anything without Tim Darnell making a report. http://www.scribd.com/doc/17376214/Police-Report Tim Darnell’s attorney submitted that very page summarizing the false claims he was making at the first hearing for the frivolous, harassment case he filed against me. That groundless filing was an effort to spend me into silence. The judge read those fabricated death threat and stalking allegations at the first hearing and dissolved the restraining order. Tim Darnell was denied any form of injunction. Tim Darnell had not one shred of evidence to support these vicious lies as I had never stalked him or threatened him in any way. He lost the case against me as he and his attorney never produced a single false statement made by me. http://www.scribd.com/doc/8264390/Tim-Darnell-Sues-Soapboxmom-

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/13360102/Tim-Darnell-vs-Heather-Dobrott-Order-Granting-Summary-Judgment

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/13360817/Motion-for-Summary-Judgment-Dobrott

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/15101372/Motion-for-Sanctions-2

    Tim Darnell filed and lost in Summary Judgment a frivolous, groundless harassment suit against the Better Business Bureau of Dallas. I posted and commented on all the court documents. The court documents confirmed a 98% loss rate for the participants in Advantage Conferences and it was litigated to be a pyramid scheme. Many of the reps they defrauded lost around $20,000.00.

    http://mysite.verizon.net/resurlf0/advantageconferencestruth/id15.html

    Tim Darnell stole his church’s name to set up a bogus charity. http://www.scribd.com/doc/6723551/Church-Affidavit-732008

    http://mysite.verizon.net/resurlf0/advantageconferencestruth/id44.html

    Tim Darnell was involved in a scam virtually identical to Advantage Conferences which was also run out of his home. It ended with a bankruptcy and two hotels suing Darnell as the registered agent for that disaster of a business. http://www.scribd.com/doc/6728467/All-Star-Entrepreneur-Tim-Darnell-33-Owner-Bankruptcy-Filing

    Mr. Darnell also had a stranger owned life insurance venture that imploded with no sales and was followed by an investigation by the Texas Department of Insurance.

    Mr. Darnell, Advantage Conferences, Jack Weinzierl and Jim McHugh are also facing a suit for fraud, conspiracy and violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act in District Court in Collin County. http://www.scribd.com/doc/6727375/1st-Amended-Original-Petition That case is nearing its conclusion and I fear he will be enraged when he loses.

    Tim Darnell owes an undetermined amount of back taxes to the IRS as he sent in Affidavits and refused to pay any taxes from 1998-2005. He is still trying to resolve that. He has a tax lien on his home. He is also being sued for delinquent property taxes. He is extremely desperate for money with all the litigation he is involved in.

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/7505298/Notes-from-Oral-Deposition-of-Timothy-Darnell-1

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/17382285/Darnell-Tax-Lien

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/10615835/Tim-Darnell-Tax-Case

    As Darnell has an extensive history of threatening and defrauding people and I have every reason to believe he wants to harm my family, I must ask that he be removed immediately from the prison ministry and barred from any contact with inmates that he could manipulate and use to harm others. These inmates must be protected from his scams, vicious lies and threats as well.

    Sincerely,

    Heather

    Now This is also how I feel about www.corkin.com site as well I also think it is slowly becoming a playground of scammers. Check out for awhile and let me know what you think from there and see if you agree. I think so indeed.

    Re: Facebook is a Playground for Scammers!!!

    I will usually only "friend" my friends on Facebook. In other words, my coworkers, family, and people I actually know. When I left my last job, my coworkers and I promised we would stay in touch. Well, you know that usually doesn't happen. We're now able to stay in touch because of FB.

    Here are some things I recommend:
    • Set your entire profile to Private. This will prevent anyone seeing your contact info, your pics & vids, your friends list, etc. An internet search of your name may show you have a FB account, but no info will show beyond your profile pic.
    • Also, I don't take part in Gaming on Facebook. People who are gaming usually need lots of friends, if you look at a gamers friends list they often have hundreds if not thousands of "friends".
    • I don't take part in those silly Apps, ex: "What Gilligan's Island character are you?" Really? How idiotic.
    Not to mention when you allow access to this App, it makes your profile info, pics, your friend list, etc available to whomever made the App (a third party).
    Facebook is a lot of fun IMO, but ya gotta be careful and block the bad guys like the one in Soapboxmom's post.

    Be safe!

    Facebook Scam

    There are lots of online stores on Facebook that are offering cheap products especially in the Philippines. Please beware of these scams especially for the person named Jerwil Andes who stole $100 from me when I buy PSP on his gadget store. His modus is he will show you a fake receipt of the courier that he sent to other people to proof that he shipped the product. This will definitely serves as a lesson to me and a perception of now buying tangible things on online stores if the payment method is not paypal.
