The only thing better than porn is celebrity porn, but that doesn’t mean you should use it as bait in a Facebook spam operation.

That’s what a man named Christopher Peter Tarquini is alleged to have done, and as expected, Facebook isn’t so pleased with his actions and has named Tarquini in court documents.

According to the BBC, Facebook spent $5,000 in the last year investigating Tarquini’s online behavior, who it said was posting “deceptive messages, images, and links” to users’ pages promising celebrity sex tapes, including an alleged Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez romp.

Users who couldn’t resist clicking (understandably) would be automatically sent to third-party websites, generating an affiliate commission for Tarquini. Plus, the script with pictures and links was automatically posted to those users’ timelines.

According to reports, Tarquini continued to spam Facebook even after being told that he was violating the social network’s terms of service.

Facebook is seeking reimbursement for the money and resources it spent investigating his spam blasts, and looking to ban him from Facebook for life.
