Facebook has been ordered by a Dutch court to remove fraudulent adverts touting get-rich-quick cryptocurrency schemes featuring a local celebrity. On Monday, as reported by Reuters, the decision is the result of Dutch billionaire John de Mol suing the social media platform for failing to respond to reports of advertisements misusing his and other celebrities’ likeness to tout cryptocurrency schemes.
