As you may have seen this weekend, PPP's Facebook page (with over 200,00o Facebook fans) was hacked.
This morning, the hacker started adding outgoing affiliate links to places you all know I would never send you to.
He's now blocked myself as well as several other bloggers and friends from posting on his wall.
Here's what you can do to help.
On any spam posts that you see on the hacked PPP Facebook page, do this:
— DO NOT CLICK ON THEIR LINKS.
— Click the little grey carrot in the top right.
— Click “I don't like this post” (you may have to click “more options” first)
— Click “It's Spam”
— Click “Account has been hacked”
— Click “done”
My friend Cheryl had an awesome idea too – you can send the hacker a message on that page letting them know you want PPP back (and maybe pleading for help?) He's already blocked me out but it might be worth trying.
Guys, I have no idea what to do with this mess. In the midst of everything else we visited Alabama this weekend and our car broke down – so I'm sitting here working from my very sweet neighbors house until we can make the 8 hour drive home tonight.
If you can say a prayer or two that the right people at Facebook will somehow see the numerous emails I've sent that would be fantastic. I really am just a mom here – I've been so fortunate to grow the PPP page from scratch and absolutely love interacting with you all there, and am just at a loss about this mess.
I'm furious with Facebook for not doing anything at this point to help, and can't believe they've allowed this type of spam to go on. Please know that we're working to get things set up correctly, and pray that this is just a really bad bump in the road.
In the meantime, please sign up for free daily PPP emails, where you'll get updated each day around 1PM with the day's latest deals. Here are other ways you can keep up with PPP:

With all the craziness here it may be a day or two until we're back to our regular posting schedule, but know that we're doing our best. Thanks so very much for your support, and if you have any other suggestions please share them in the comments.
