The F.B.I. is investigating the use of fake 'Farmville' farms by individuals playing the very popular game on Face Book. The multi-state investigation has been under way for over 3 months amidst complaints by others playing the game.
Scott Llop from Atlanta says, "It's not fair when people try to cheat and send themselves gifts resulting in faster leveling up like my cousin Stacy does.
"Some of my own relatives are involved in this scheme and it's appalling."
The penalty for this activity on Farmville is uncertain but the CEO of Face Book is considering deleting anyone's account involved in such deceit.
Farmville is considered the most addictive game since the Uno craze of the 1980's.
