Two well-meaning Facebook vigilantes are in a battle against scam reports, and Facebook‘s reaction appears to be “Yeah, good task. Now keep doing it. ”
Kathy Kostrub-Waters and Bryan Denny are investing a few of their valuable leisure time finding fake reports on the internet site — not the sort produced by Russian trolls through the fake news blitz many years ago, but the kind which use taken pictures to persuade lonely hearts to deliver cash to people they’ve never met.
Kostrub-Waters and Denny told Buzzfeed they regularly current Facebook with their findings, and every time are disappointed to find Facebook hasn’t changed their approach. States Denny: “ The truth is it is not my work or Kathy’s. Thus I get actually sick and tired of ‘Hey, many thanks for the ongoin work — keep it. ’ I’m like no, damnit, it is your task for this.
