Getting into a legal wrangle with a company that has UNLIMITED RESOURCES is a complication you do not want in your life. Not to talk of the fact that the company has noted you, and has probably put out a global espionage operation on you and your family using your devices and stuff.

Kill the business and do something else with your life.

My thoughts exactly.

The Op should thread carefully as they could report him to INTERPOL and get his passport blacklisted.

If they want to take it far, they could even put an extradition request with the Nigerian authorities to extradite him to the US for the court case. He should thread carefully.

Stop what you're doing as this seems like you're having access to users data which can land them in big trouble.

As for those of you that are saying big fish, big money etc. You have no idea what Interpol can do. They might not get you now, but whenever you approach the U.S, U.K or Canadian embassy, thats when you will know whatsup.

Secondly, this kind of email are issued to over 300,000 developers daily if not more than, how many Apps will they buy?? They don't need your App, they just don't want to get into trouble with the government.

Recently, Google CEO was at the U.S House of Rep to explain user data and what they do with it. Google was heavily scrutinised and battered with several questions from lawmakers. It is a very sensitive issue. That is why you're being warned.

That is a very serious Threat..

which means you have obviously crossed their Ads Terms and conditions Rules..
They must have red flagged your apps maybe due to your unlicenced activities which they are against..
according to the PDF you are monetizing in those platforms and gaining access to their users data without their permission..

Op just play along and free yourself from them then deactivate everything you have to do with Facebook Inc afterwards..

Learn to monetize using other platforms.

I am a developer, I have Instagram saver which uses sessions to get data and also Facebook story saver on play store. I monetize using Facebook Audience Network, that's where they got my information because I do receive payments with them, they have disabled my Facebook and Instagram plus my FAN accounts with some funds and are threatening to sue me if I don't stop my apps and also give them information about the apps I have created.

I need help on what to do and what kind of action can they take upon me.

If I ask; "but why are Nigerians like this?"
I probably will be a victim of online battery ...

The rate at which some Nigerians are willing to desperately exploit grey areas for money regardless of the consequences baffles me...

Nothing much to advise. Cease and desist. Get a lawyer and do not give them your tools. If they really want it, they should employ you to develop a detriment strategy.

Re: Facebook Is Suing Me For This by dheaven: 9:57am On May 04
Simple matter.. First they are thieves by requesting your source code... Use a lawyer and write to them back that the app you produced is to test if actually their promise that users information are safe in their platform and as a result of this you have discovered their website is not safe for users.. That you are compelling them to pay you to release the secret you used in knowing that and developing the app... Failure for them to reach you within 14 days for a reasonable proposal acceptable by you you will obtain a court injunction banning facebook from from operation throughout the world as their service is not safe for users.
Don't chicken out. Is your time to make it... Even if you don't have money to go to USA sue them in federal high court Nigeria seeking injunction for them not to operate in Nigeria as their service is not safe... You need to have mind and little spiritual backing to do this.

*THIS STORY INSPIRED ME AND I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD LEARN FROM IT:*. A King called for a village feast and commanded that each villager in his domain came with a gourd of palm-wine and pour it in a giant pot at the entrance of the village which everyone would eventually drink from. When it was time to drink from the pot, everyone was surprised that it was water that was in the pot. Why should they be surprised? Apparently, everyone came with a gourd of water instead of palm-wine thinking that since it was one jug of water, it wouldn't be noticed. The King pointed this fact out and the whole village was ashamed. Society is the sum of US together not just leadership.

*_Lessons:_*

1. We are all drinking from what we contributed as a society.

2. Never think your actions are insignificant. Take personal responsibility... Maybe, just maybe, you'd inspire some others to take their own responsibilities seriously and would have more 'palm-wine' than 'water' in our society.

3. Stop complaining about the problems and what others are doing and be part of the solution in your country, family, church/mosque, street etc...

Be a good citizen, family member, church/mosque worker, community/CDA or friendly neighbour etc today!
nice one, though it doesn't correlate with the topic

Blur the email address and phone numbers of the lawyer that contacted you. Too many idiots on nairaland that could use it to implicate you.

They never said that they are suing you. This is a cease and desist notification. All you need is to reply them, promising that you will never cross those lines.

guy send them an official mail and tell them that the LAST TIME YOU CHECKED, IT IS NOT YOUR DUTY TO SECURE THE DATA OF FACEBOOK USERS. REMIND THEM THAT YOU ARE A HUSTLING PROGRAMMER THEY SHOULD ENCOURAGE YOU AND NOT DISCOURAGE YOU.

Tell them that if they want your code, they should be ready to pay for it. Tell them you don't charge much - just 2 million dollars.

Remember me when you start cashing out.

Do not reply with any statement that you have complied with their demands. Do not provide them any information.

Replying with a statement that you have complied with their demands or providing them any information is like making multiple confessions, which they could use against you.

Whether to continue or to stop the apps is for you to decide. You may seek the services of an information technology lawyer.

Don't listen to those fools telling you they can't do more than a dead rat.

Extra legal options exist and if they go down that line they can frustrate you and your business interests.

They won't mind spending a lot of money to make an example out of you.

Cyber crimes are globally punishable, you don't know the angle this whole thing will take eventually.

Avoid trouble while you can unless trouble is your hobby.

They’re not suing you yet. They’re just asking you to stop what you’re doing on their platform.
Re: Facebook Is Suing Me For This by Prettychild(f): 10:11am On May 04
Look for a lawyer to reply them on your behalf. Do not give them information on how you created your own app . E get why.

Meanwhile, for information on trademark registration you can contact me.
