The biggest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook is fake

        The page, titled simply "Black Lives Matter," had almost
        700,000 followers on Facebook, more than twice as many as the
        official Black Lives Matter page. It was tied to online
        fundraisers that brought in at least $100,000 that supposedly
        went to Black Lives Matter causes in the U.S. At least some of
        the money, however, was transferred to Australian bank
        accounts, CNN has learned. Fundraising campaigns associated
        with the Facebook page were suspended by PayPal and Patreon
        after CNN contacted each of the companies for comment.
        Donorbox and Classy had already removed the campaigns. The
        discovery raises new questions about the integrity of
        Facebook's platform and the content hosted there.
