Default Contest Stalkers ?

I know there are threads mentioning this somewhere, but I have been getting quite a few 'contest stalkers' fan me on FB. Have any of you actually looked into what this group(cult! lol) does? It just seems so crazy to me that there is a page to help people stalk giveaways and contests. When I come across these people, I ban them- IDK it just seems a little sleezy to me. Maybe I'm going about it all wrong? Here's a couple of recent pages I've found-

What do they do ... fan you and see if you are having a sale or something? I don't really understand all of these contests things that have been going on.

That's what I was thinking. I don't want these wackos winning all of my contests, I want my real customers and fans trying and winning.

If you go to one of those pages in my op you can see there's a page just to tell people 'so-n-so is having a giveaway, go fan them so you can swoop in and get free stuff!". There sole purpose is to get something free and it looks to me like they're good at it too.

I see. Then that explains why those that do those comment games say you have to purchase something in order to comment for something free....is that correct? I never do the free stuff...I just buy what I like because the price is so good. I bought my dd a top and matching capri set for $7.00 NWT. The tag said $26.00. Could not beat that price.

Yes there are quite a few contest stalkers I actually had a referral contest awhile back and some lady who had never even posted on my page started referring people, she was a new fan and referred around 150 new people to my page I thought well another freebie hunter well she has turned out to be one of my best customer once she received her $20 in items she hasn't stopped ordering from me.

Also when I do giveaways on my facebook I normally ask them to do something that would hint to the fact that there a true customer. ex. the first person to post a picture of there child wearing one of my bows, or the first person to post a picture of mommy wearing one of my flowers. you get the point. So that I reward the people who support me.

Is there a way to know when people fan you? I was thinking about doing a giveaway after the holidays, but this is just crazy!!!

My thought is that the winner should be someone who is already a fan, no new comers can win, but if they are a new comer and they stick around and stay active they could win in a future giveaway?

Maybe that sounds just wrong, but it might weed out the phonies who are just in it for the freebies and nothing else.

My husband set my page up for me this past summer, but I have only really had my page going the past week and a half and I already have 2 sales from it, I have just over 100 fans too I would hate to do a contest for those who have remained fans even through the past few months when nothing new was coming out because I was too busy with school/work/family, just to have a stalker win the prize.
