Hi, I don't know weather to call this hacking or not! Every time I advertise anything on FB someone keeps using random peoples accounts to act as interested. I know who this person is (a disgruntled local nuisance) I've tried changing my name & email details and rejoined FB but it doesn't help. Is there a way I can get round this as I'm trying to sell items before I move. TY in advance

Why dont you block him
Yes, block.
How does it affect your sales if somebody shows they are interested in the item? If you can, ignore it.
I assumed, barry, that it was difficult to distinguish initially between genuine interested buyers and fake ones
Perhaps you could sell your things on Ebay instead?
I agree, its simple just block them.

The guy is using different people every time ... I advertised something 3 hours ago and so far had over 70 different people enquire from various places...zimbabwe, canada, scotland (200 miles away) & lots of other impossible places, some are closer so I don't know who is genuine. How can I block him?


I live in a very small rural town on average you'd get 1-3
block every false enquiry..it only takes seconds.....
As has already been suggested, the simplest solution would be to advertise your stuff elsewhere, with eBay and Gumtree both worth a try. It seems silly to restrict your adverising to Facebook members anyway. (Millions of people don't want anything to do with Facebook, so they'll never see your ads, even if you've got the very thing that they've been looking for).
I’m sure it isn’t just you.
I sold something on Facebook once and had a similarly unlikely array of potential interested parties.
The person we sold the item to in the end I had great difficulty believing was genuine in fact, poor chap!
