FarmVille fan Ellen Colson, who is more fed up with these scammy offers (and her friends who keep falling for them), created a group on Facebook called "Make a Bullshit-button that I can use when my friends join Fake-FV-Groups!"
Colson rants on the fan page:
"None of my neighbors seem the learn from their mistakes...
Farmville-groups that promise to give you something after you have invited your friends ARE BULLSHIT!
You NEVER get anything from them! Think Logically! "
There aren't any instructions about what to do once you retrieve the button, but we came up with the following.
- Join one of these scam groups and post the button to their Facebook page.
- If you find a scammy group, link it it from the Bullshit page as a way to warn players that they're not legit.
- Send the button to friends who ask you to join these groups.
Either way, we're happy to see a teed off farmer -- pitchfork in hand -- ready to take these seedy groups to task.
