Posted in : facebook, scam, spam on by : TruXter Tags: Facebook, how to, oakley, rayban, spam, sunglasses
We have all seen these Lower than life fake RayBan fake Oakley sunglasses spammers on Facebook that are tagging people in pictures they post. and we just scroll past them but deep down wish it would stop.
If you were unsure, I will help you.Those sunglasses posts. They are spam and they are not legit. I wouldn’t buy anything from either of those pages, nor would I trust them, if you don’t get your bank account wiped out from trying to purchase from them, you will get crummy illegal knockoffs that will get you laughed at by someone who knows better.
Let’s not be defeatists. This can be resolved and it may prevent people from trying new ways to spam.
This is how you can help make these go away. By reporting the spammers on Facebook.
Put your mouse over the name of the account that is tagging your friend, and right click and select “open in new tab”.
Now navigate back to your timeline by clicking on the original tab.
Now go back to the tagged image.
Where you see the post, you will see in the top right corner of that post, a small arrow pointing down. Click that arrow. Then click the “hide all from Oakley Online” or the RayBan account or all of the other sunglasses spammers.
There’s a tad bit more to do here
but don’t freak out when it vanishes
Don’t change pages and don’t hit refresh, you have to look close. Look for what you see in the next image.
This will make the tagged post disappear from your current view
You will see what looks like that picture there in the place of the spammy picture. You will notice a message in there that says:
“You will no longer see posts from Oakley Online in News Feed Undo
Why don’t you want to see this?”
and the bottom sentence will be a clickable link.
Click that link and you will get a pop-up
There is a multiple choice that pops up in a small window. Select the bottom choice. “it’s Spam” and click continue.(or yours may say “this is a fake account’ please select either one that is available.) You will be noticed that you will never see it again. but trust that you will.
Now go back to that other tab you opened.
Get ready to throw the final blow.
You must mark them as spam
This should be the Spammer’s account. Look to the far right hand side of their timeline. There will be a gear. click that gear a and a drop down menu will appear. Select “report Page”. Do this. Report the page. You will then get one more tiny multiple question pop up.
Look somewhere near the middle.
Where you will find it “Report Page”.
You will be taken to another prompt.
Which says “Why are you reporting this page”.
You have to do this last step or this was all for nothing
Simple clicks and done.
and click “continue”
That’s it, you are done. You have done all you can.
Bookmark/add to favorites this page because the person has a few accounts and you will see them all. If you can, put this page’s link in the comments section of those posts.
Either Facebook will take notice and finally do something, or your friends will at least have a fighting chance at beating this spam.
