Where Does This Facebook messenger Gift Message Come From?

6 replies
I'm puzzled. My products are cuckoo clocks I deign and import from Germany. Expensive, so they aren't instant purchases. My first design is a quilt shop, so I have been looking for a way to find spouses of quilters to market to. But haven't found a way yet.
In the past two days I see Messenger threads that go like this:
Hi Rita! Nice to meet you.
Your spouse will be a champ happening upon the perfect gift for you. Just fill in his or her email address and I'll send a hint...

her response is then, Main Menu

and (supposedly) mine,
Would you like a cuckoo clock as a gift?
Last week I rolled out some Facebook ads. Is this something Messenger does now when one advertises? I didn't choose Messenger ads. And I sure wouldn't do it this way.

Thanks!

    I have never seen that before but if anything looks unusual or dodgy, I wouldn't touch it, even if it's in Facebook where some people think every word is legitimate.

      Laurence you got me thinking..."dodgy"... I did some digging and it turns out it's a bot from Chatbot. I had been curious about Messenger bots so I played with it a couple of weeks ago. It was NOT obvious that I had done anything to make it go live. I was simply kicking the tires. In fat I had determined that regardless of how I've read that its so effective, it appeared too spammy for my business. Jeezopete I consider myself pretty darned aware and careful and I didn't get that the bot had gone live. Thank you!

    No worries, Jodie. I am glad to have helped.
    Remember this... if it looks or sounds too good to be true, then it's unlikely to be true.

    Never experienced that. But there's an article in lifewire about this. I will share the link. You can go through this if you want to know about gifting:
