Facebook Sues Celebrity Porn Scams Spammer

Christopher Peter Tarquini from Malton, New Jersey has been using self designed software scripts to post deceptive messages,images and links on Facebook user's page. These links direct users to non Facebook marketing websites where Peter earned commissions.
The lawsuits states: "Defendant Christopher Peter Tarquini is a recidivist spammer and abuser of Facebook's services," ... "Tarquini orchestrated and participated in an elaborate scheme that inundated Facebook users with messages purporting to link to pornographic images of celebrities. The messages were deceptive. When Facebook users clicked on the messages, the messages (and suggestive images associates with those messages) were automatically shared with the users' Facebook friends, and the browsers of the users who clicked on the messages were redirected to marketing websites that paid Tarquini and his associates a commission for the referral traffic. In short, Facebook users who clicked on Tarquini's deceptive messages immediately, and without their knowledge or consent, became unknowing participants in and victims of Tarquini's scam."
Facebook claims that it sent Peter a "cease-and-desist" letter in March and he replied back by saying he had indeed created this software script called "Jacked" .Facebook also claims that it has spent a large sum of money, $5000, to track down the spammer.
