On third thought, after closer examination, I haven't seen Robert sign anything on the forum or Facebook, for that matter, like that. Seems to be a fake

It's fake. Hover over the little thumbnail and you'll see it comes up with something different to all the others. The images are also slightly different, and clicking on the name of the poster will take you to an error page, not the PMDG facebook page.Don't fall for it guys...

However, I liked to be addressed like a Dear Customer :) Robert calls us Captains ..... lol and his full signature is more formal than usual.

I don't think "Cpt. S. Randazzo" is similar to "Captain Robert. S. Randazzo". The annoucement is a fake. Though with the money I've given them, I like the sound of "Dear Customer".

if its fake do you think someone possibly hacked their FB? Why would PMDG pull such hoax?

I believe someone hacked their FB. I don't think this is PMDG's doing.

No one hacked their account just a little stupid guy that use the very basic of Facebook that you can create any page with anyname and take back the logo from PMDG for his own page. There is not any truth in it being from the team or from a hack.

The pages are the same, that's why. Someone has posted on the wall pretending to be PMDG. If you click on their name it goes to this page http://www.facebook.com/pages/PMDG/221083991247142, whereas clicking on any of the other posts made my PMDG themselves will take you straight back to the pmdg profile page. The little thumbnail beside the post is also different to all the other thumbnails.No one has hacked into the PMDG account or anything like that, they've just created an account with the same name and posted on their wall in an attempt to fool people, and it looks like its working!

Completely fake - I deleted the post and the offending page has been banned and reported to Facebook's admins as a forgery.www.facebook.com/pmdgsimulations is our real page - anything that gets posted from any other page that does not have that URL when you click on it is a fake.Also, you can set our Facebook wall to only show posts that actually came from our page/account too - that's one for sure way to check. The fake post did not show up when you filter the page to only PMDG posts.
