Facebook and Google are 'failing to take down scam adverts'

FACEBOOK and Google are failing to take down scam adverts, Consumer group Which? claims.

A third of people who reported an advert to Google after falling victim to it said it was not taken down.

A quarter of Facebook users said the same, a study said.

Which? consumer rights expert Adam French backed tighter regulation.

He said: “Online platforms must be given a legal responsibility to identify, remove and prevent fraudulent content.”

Facebook, headed by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, defended its record.

The firm said: “Our security experts and AI remove this content.”

Google added: “We’re constantly reviewing ads, sites and accounts to ensure they comply with our policies.”
