AU Dodgy patrol: Selling something you don't have

Who is the AU repping house selling Facebook News Feed ad units to clients, but not actually being able to fulfill them?

I have experienced first hand, and heard from others of a third party sales company selling these ad units to agencies, then ignoring requests for screenshots and proof of posting ... and then when repeatedly pressed finally admitting that they don't actually have the right to be selling these ads and trying to allocate the dollar amounts into properties outside of Facebook.

It's dodgy sh*t like this that gives the industry a bad name.

No Australian reps have access to the Sponsored Social Stories or mini feeds inventory as advised to me by FB. We had a similar experience but know go direct.
