    In Facebook Messenger, I received messages from my deceased mother-in-law. Amazing! She was contacting me about a grant for free government money.

    Well, I figured it out pretty quickly it was not my grandmother, but instead some scammer. However, here is the link they sent...

    You can see that it is a form of abuse. It'd be my hope that your company has character and integrity and will stop the user who is creating such a form.

    Also... one should not have to have a login for your site in order to contact you. After you respond, I will be deleting my account.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your quick response. Sorry you may have misunderstood my earlier statement. You said you got a message from Facebook Messenger informing you about the grant.

    What I was requesting is a snapshot of the Facebook message so that once we take action on the suspected account or when we are making further inquiries with account owner we can refer to the message used to link users to their form.
