Help Keep Facebook Fake Free

We are recruiting administrators of Suffolk based Facebook selling groups to help us reduce the amount of counterfeit goods and illegal tobacco available on Facebook.

If you are an admin for a group, we would like you to contact us at so that we can work together.

All we are asking you to do is:

  1. Report Facebook users to us who are selling illegal goods
  2. Remove the illegal post from your group

We would ask that you take a screen shot of the post and either email it to us, or send it as a PM (Private Message) to our Facebook Page.  Then remove the post from your group.

You can also sign up to be a Trading Standards Consumer Champion so that we can keep you up to date with our investigations, and provide you with tips on what to look out for.  Every week we send an email update with information of scams, rogues and Trading Standards news.

The sale of counterfeit goods and illegal tobacco is an offence, and can lead to prosecution. Help us keep these posts off Facebook and ensure that the residents of Suffolk are not duped into buying something that is fake and/or potentially dangerous.
