My FB market place is showing me as being in France.
Not 100% sure how this has happened.
I have this bad feeling that one of my kids has some thing to do with this 😀
Anyway I can not change my location back so any help appreciated.

Seems to have been happening on normal FB posts lately as well. Putting people either elsewhere in NZ or around the world.

Presumably a broken IP address location database?

I just wish you could turn it off. I have no interest in sales on an un protected platform. Nor the fact it appears every 4th or 5th post suggesting something despite my lack of interaction
