Fake Food Lion coupons slip past Facebook''s screening and get on the network
NBCWashington and other media sources report that Facebook accidentally accepted a fake ad for Food Lion, a supposedly printable coupon with unbelievable discounts. The link apparently contains spyware or “malverstising” ware. This would be a trademark infringement also. Presumably, Facbeook is removing the ad, but this one got past them. Food Lion is telling customers to be wary of this ad. Major newspapers, including the New York Times, have had some issues with malware ads getting through.
