A No Holds Barred Approach.

───► Scam Sniper ◄─── Shot By Facebook / Disables Admins

Our friends over at Scam Sniper were given a setback in helping keep Facebook users safe when they unexpectedly had all their admins disabled last night.

Scam Sniper is a page that lets users know of all the various site, game & internet scams that are going on and have grown very nicely over the past few months due to the valuable information they provide.  While right now the page is still up there will be no posts on it until the issue is settled with Facebook.

The reason for the disabling still has not been disclosed and all they have received from Facebook is an automated response from them. so it is now a waiting game.

Fortunately they do have an outside blog that they will continue to provide warnings from and us at The Facebook & Zynga Podcast are now adding them to our page so they will still get out the scam warnings to you all.

They have also said this :
