Is it legit to sell facebook accounts with activated credit card information?

15 replies
I have a lot of friends who don't use their Visa Debit card. I would like to buy the 0 balance cards from them to activate Facebook voucher.

Then I sell the pre-loaded $50 ads credit Facebook accounts. (The visa debit information is safe because Facebook hide them from viewing.)

Please anybody tell me is it legit or not?

Thanks

    Not really. Most accounts that are activated with the free credits are disabled if they are used for affiliate purposes anyways.

    Is it legit to sell facebook accounts?
    If I were to take this literally, I believe Facebook's TOC does not allow that. If I am wrong, please correct me.

  • Not legit at all. Against Facebook's TOS. I would stay away from doing that!

    I've read the TOS of Facebook

    Then I search for the keyword "sell". There are only 3 term about "sell"
    1. You will not use your personal timeline for your own commercial gain (such as selling your status update to an advertiser).
    2. Your access to and use of data you receive from Facebook, will be limited as follows: You will not sell user data. If you are acquired by or merge with a third party, you can continue to use user data within your application, but you cannot transfer user data outside of your application.
    3. You will not sell, transfer, or sublicense our code, APIs, or tools to anyone.

    So I think it's ok to sell or "for rent" facebook accounts.

    It's against Facebook TOS to sell FB accounts and I seriously doubt that the debit card companies would like it either.

      Technically, that is MONEY LAUNDERING!!!!!!! And NOBODY cares about their account number! They care if IT WILL BE USED! MANY companies, and facebook is likely one(I don't have a facebook account, so I can't check), allow the number to be used EVEN though it is hidden.

      Anyway, to legally use the number, the people should give INFORMED consent. WHO, in their right mind, would do that?

    Who cares if it is against Facebooks TOS or not, you are talking about Fraud.

    Which is illegal, and will land not only you in Jail, but also your friends who allow you to "buy their 0 balance cards"

    But hey if you are ok with Fraud and landing your friends and yourself in Jail, go right ahead.

    Instead of trading Debit Card and Facebook Account, I will hire my friends running the Ads Campaign with my vouchers and their accounts.

    Is it OK?

    No it is not..

    Lets make this simple, if you are a "user" on facebook and you create an account to get the voucher this account is tied to an individual.

    As per their "Statement of Rights and Responsibilities" Section 3 has to many to copy sections here that you cannot loan, rent, allow the temporary use or create any account for purpose other than your own personal use. Just because you hit ctrl-F and search for a certain keyword does not mean the intent of the "Statement of Rights and Responsibilities" will not apply to your keyword that you cannot find.

    Then if you look at "User Payments Terms" It has again several sections regarding the use of "credits" or as you call them vouchers. Again, you cannot do this.

      Is this "personal use"? ->

      "Hello everybody. I have $50 ads credit in my Facebook account. I will use all of my ads credit to advertise your website with only $5."

      -> Does it break the rules?

    It's probably also illegal at Federal level. Let alone the Facebook TOS.
