    I was sent this on messenger few days ago. It was not sent sent from my friend. They had her photo and were pretending to be her. I did not accept the link she wanted to send and blocked this scammer.

    If people stopped replying to message and friend requests from people they don’t know …the talk of payment would never come up. Better to ignore the requests, report and block . Done
