haven't seen or heard of that. If I get something like that over there and it is not in relation to anything I have posted, it goes ignored. I just mark it as read and move on.

I usually get a few of these sort of messages every other month (In different forms of what they may say).

If it is a group conversation, leave the conversation than delete it from your archive.

If it was just a private message to you personally, then do the latter. It's easier to do this on the web page rather than on a phone app (I haven't tried to delete a conversation on the phone app).

There isn't really anything you can do other than just ignoring the messages, not clicking on any links they may send and delete/archive the chat.

Not really drivel. A forum I moderated on ( PC World that just shut down ) had a discussion group for that sort of thing. We had some moderate traffic on that too. Granted, if you have a question about whether or nor something is malicious, then you can Google it. If you are not sure of what you are looking for, then a place such as this is a good option. There is a lot of stuff that goes on, on FB, but I have not heard of that.
