FanPages Are Being Stolen

It's the easiest thing in the world to steal a FanPage, and the person doing the stealing doesn't need to do one bit of hacking.

How does it work? The thief contacts FanPage sellers, convinces them they are serious buyers, and provides a legitimate excuse on why they should be added to admin (usually to check out the stats.)

The owner adds them and the thief deletes the owner.

WHOOPS! Your FanPage is now controlled by someone else and you can't get in.

Yes, you can complain to Facebook, and you may or may not eventually get control of your page back.

Meanwhile the thieves have done whatever they like – ruined your rep, sold your page, sold their junk products to your fans, etc.

Don't do it. Do NOT add anyone to your Admin if you do not know them.
