Consumer champion and the journalist behind ‘MoneySavingExpert‘ Martin Lewis, is suing Facebook for defamation after it failed to tackle “dodgy” adverts that used his face and website to sell dubious financial products.
Lewis claims that Facebook has failed to remove or prevent the adverts from appearing on its site. He also claims that the false adverts are not only damaging to his reputation but have also persuaded victims to invest their money into scams.
He said that he would donate any damages awarded to anti-fraud and fake news charities.
The adverts used titles such as “Bitcoin code” and “Cloud trader” to encourage people to invest their savings into a range of “get rich schemes”.
Although he has repeatedly contacted Facebook to complain, Lewis claims that the company has failed to take action and that he has faced reputational damage as a consequence.
