JAKARTA – Facebook Inc., along with Instagram, sued 4 companies and 3 people from China on charges of selling fake accounts, number of likes, and followers for crime purposes.
 
According to the lawsuit, as reported by Bloomberg on Saturday (02/03/2019), the Chinese companies are said to have advertised and created fake accounts for the past 2 years and marketed those accounts on 6 sites in large numbers.
 
These fake and inauthentic accounts were created with the aim of spreading false information, fictitious sales, fraudulent advertising, and several other fraudulent schemes. Furthermore, in the lawsuit it was said that the fake accounts were also made on well-known platforms such as Amazon, Apple, Google, LinkedIn and Twitter.
