Facebook has repeatedly taken legal action against such companies.

Such as Reported The company, Domain, was "designed to deceive people by falsifying the family of our applications." Some of the Domains use names like facebook-verify-inc.com, instagramhjack.com and videocall-whatsapp.com, which refer to acquaintances applications the company's.
As stated by Christen Dubois, IP Litigation Director on Facebook, the company took this action "in order to prevent fraud and stop the malicious use of our companies and products".
Dubois also said it had tried to contact the Indian company to discuss the change of domains, but had received no response from it, so they filed a lawsuit against it.
In addition, as Dubois said, lawsuits against such companies are a move that helps Facebook's mission to protect its users from "electronic fishing, theft of credentials and other methods of online fraud."
This is not the first time Facebook has filed a lawsuit against a service proxy or a Domain provider.
