UK consumer campaigner Martin Lewis, founder of the MoneySavingExpert website, has outlined two initiatives to combat online scam adverts. Lewis earlier agreed to drop its lawsuit against Facebook in exchange for a button on the service to report scam ads.

Facebook has also launched a scam ads reporting tool, unique to the service in the UK.
