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.

Below is the pdf the sent to me.

Mod please move it to the appropriate section

Using people's data without their consent is a big crime. In europe we have the GDPR law that everyone must abide too. You are not allowed to do something simple as taking people's fotos/videos and sharing online without them consenting and other related stuffs linked to collecting data. Ofcourse in Nigeria we dont have such laws or they are not enforced, people randomly record people and just share on their pages for clicks.
Remember few years ago with the " Cambridge Analytica data scandal " facebook was sued and penalized, so expectedly they would have stepped up to stop any form unsolicited data collection. Data scraping is against the law everwhere, and now it is worse when you are using their platform, Just do as they say and stop.
You can consider creating your own social media app or explore decentralized social media.

Relax, how much lawsuit do you think someone worth over $50billion Would sue you for..

It's just a threat
Sometimes big corporations do not sue to get money from you, they sue to cripple and shut you down for providing a service they are not rendering and it is making you big. His error or mistake, is not consulting them before hand to make use of their patent/bla bla bla... They do not want competition. If he finds a way for them to benefit from his programs, I am sure they can find a way to encourage his app.

I just want to know what legal action can they take.

Get a Lawyer,you need one fast.
One of the things they can do is to report you and your activities to the Nigerian authority.

Should you think they don't have jurisdiction on you,let me disappoint you,they do.

If you have good money to fight fb then you can ignore them.

My one quid advise

O LORD Thy Word say
“Call upon me in the times of trouble and I will deliver you, and thou shall glorify God therefore

If you are domiciled within USA and Canada they would most likely sue you in a court especially for trademark infringement which is serious.

But from the tone of their mail they seem incapacitated and more or less pleading with you to back out from their content.

My Advice:
Remove any FB or IG trademark from your app, you don't want that liability it's internationally protected. That is the major stuff they have against you.
As for the data scraping, they can't pursue it as they don't want any media attention regarding data which they are the biggest thief the world knows today.
This is the much I can say based on the details you have provided regarding your app.

Shalom
