    I had started an event on Facebook to take down some of these pages last year at:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/ 138905589592265/ 141944795955011

    It was very successful.

    They are not just getting paid for surveys and recruiting people, they are stealing people's identities through several means. They are gaining people's personal information from the surveys. They are also infecting people's computers when they are sharing the pictures. Take a look at my Facebook page to learn more.
