a scam on messenger

Hi Peter and Lori, thought you might be interested in these messages I’ve been getting on facebook messenger.

I’ve got this person? well not sure that it’s a person but more likely a bot setup to respond to input it might expect:

right away I realise this is not you, no FB account and created recently, must be a scam of some sort. But can’t work out where they got the name from.

at this point I’m wondering if he’s going to talk to me about god

quickly googled that and definitely US stuff

wow $150,000 that would be nice ðŸ™‚

the plot thickens

now do I click that link?

yes the link goes to a page confirming all that

to be continued…

Here’s the email that arrived and yes it’s going to cost me $3,250 to get my imaginary winnings:
