Martin Lewis launches Facebook scam detection service
Our resident money man Martin Lewis was left livid after his image was used to promote various online adverts that included energy products, PPI reclaim companies and mortgage brokers.
But six months ago, Martin settled his case out of court - with Facebook donating £3million to set up a new anti-scams initiative.
Martin joins us from his office as he reveals more about two new schemes launching today - involving both The Citizens Advice Bureau and Facebook.
