Facebook: Do you use Facebook Marketplace to sell things? The bank account may be empty
There have also been reports of serious crimes such as murder centered on Facebook’s marketplace
Netizens who are not familiar with the Facebook Marketplace may be very rare. The marketplace is a dedicated platform of Facebook, which was first launched in 2016. Since then, billions of people have used the platform to market their products. The Facebook Marketplace is always buzzing with ads for everything from clothes, electronics, children’s toys to everyday tools. But the common man as well as this platform of Facebook has now become the haunt of tainted criminals. As a result, ordinary people are now falling prey to other serious crimes besides deception. So very naturally questions have started to arise about the minimum security of the platform.
Recently, a US website called ProPublica raised the issue of rising crime in the Facebook marketplace. From this point of view, the statistics they have presented are literally horrible. According to the website, the marketplace is currently a haven for criminals. The tainted criminals are using this platform of Facebook to deceive the common people. Although popular social media says they are indifferent to the issue. Despite multiple allegations of clearing bank accounts from petty fraud, Facebook authorities have not made any arrangements to increase security in the marketplace, leaving users to suffer.
According to the ProPublica website, a total of 400 employees are currently employed in the United States, Ireland, India, and Singapore to address complaints about the Facebook Marketplace. All the employees alone have to deal with about 600 complaints a day. In this case, it is not possible for anyone to hear any complaint about more than a minute, from which it is possible to understand the sad aspect of the security of the marketplace. According to the report, it is not possible for the contract team working under Facebook to address any complaints. They are even unable to protect people from deception.
In addition to employees, Facebook has its own software to prevent marketplace fraud. But in the workplace, that software is a complete failure. Far from identifying fraudsters, on the contrary, this technology creates barriers to some legitimate business! As a result financial loss increases. Fraudsters, on the other hand, obtain almost all the personal and banking information of the average user and take it away.
This is the topic of crime like theft, cheating. Apart from these, information has also come to light about serious crimes like murder centered on Facebook’s marketplace! Dennis Williams, a 54-year-old Pennsylvania man, was killed by Joshua Gorgon, a 26-year-old Pennsylvania man while trying to buy goods from contact here. Williams was caught trying to buy a used refrigerator for 180. Gorgan is said to have killed her, primarily to buy drugs.
Naturally, Facebook authorities are embarrassed by the release of Propablika’s report. Authorities have acknowledged that the Facebook Marketplace is in no way superior to them, as there is a possibility of fraud in other areas of Bikini. However, they did not forget to state that their security policy is effective against all forms of fraud.
