And now... there are those who wish to "rent" your FB account to place ads... of course to minimize detection, you can't have placed any sort of paid advertising or promotions... you have to have had your account for a certain amount of time, AND must be willing to install an app that will allow them remote access to your HOME PC.

The only real way to combat this sort of activity is that once the source is identified (the usual players have already been identified) all providers simply depeer the offending ISP/s, and if that doesn't stop it, depeer the source country/countries until they get their act together. Yes, innocent users will be caught in the net, but this will only serve to put pressure on the authorities in those places to fix the problem. And yes, if necessary, I include the US in this as well. Extreme problems require extreme measures.
