For the past year and a half, Facebook has been cracking down on sites and companies that violate its policies.
Education in a Spanish company
The first of the two lawsuits was filed in Madrid, Spain. Facebook has sued a local company under the brand name MGP25 Cyberint Services. This company manages a site that sells Instagram likes and comments.
"Defendant's service was designed to circumvent Instagram restrictions on false engagement, imitating the official Instagram application ", said today Jessica Romero, a key executive of Facebook.
According to Romero, the defendants did this for profit, and continued to do so even when Facebook sent them a letter (Cease and Desist) to stop the illegal activities. They also continued to do so even after deactivating their accounts.
Education in an American company
In addition, Facebook filed a second lawsuit against USA, in a court in San Francisco, against him Mohammad Zaghar, of its owner Massroot8.com.
This site claims to allow users to manage multiple Facebook accounts simultaneously. Facebook, however, found that Zaghar's service steals their passwords users on Facebook, during the account creation process.
Facebook says Zaghar uses these passwords to have access in the accounts and to steals information from users and their friends.
Romero says the company sent a letter to Zaghar and deactivated his Facebook accounts, but website continues to operate to this day.
Before Massroot8, Zaghar managed two other sites, the fast-likers.com and fast-autolikers.com, who sold Facebook likes and comments.
