Martin Lewis drops Facebook lawsuit
Consumer campaigner Martin Lewis has dropped a defamation lawsuit against Facebook over a series of ads that ran on its platform, falsely claiming he backed several investment schemes. He said he had agreed to drop the case after Facebook agreed to introduce a scam ads reporting button. Facebook will donate £3m to a new Citizens Advice project. The scheme, which will launch in May, will be dedicated to fighting scams. "The aim of my campaigning lawsuit was always to stop scam ads, and to help those who have fallen victim to them."
