Facebook also claims that the defendant also engaged in what is known as cloaking. Through cloaking, the defendant displayed one version of the ad landing page on the Facebook system, but displayed another version to Facebook users, deliberately disguising the true destination of the website link on the ad. So far, there are not many legal proceedings in such cases.

Facebook says it refunds victims of unauthorized ads and helps them secure their accounts. Facebook also emphasized that it will continue to detect malicious behavior and enforce violations of terms and policies.
