Fake messages in FB Messanger from Marketplace

Has anyone seen this? I post for sale in FB Marketplace... then I get messages "hello, is this available?" From a bunch of people.... I reply to them all with "yes"... 99% of them dont reply back.... i feel there is some algorithm (not surprisingly) with FB Marketplace making the user think the market is extremely active... I'm soo sick of FB

Problem is you get that a lot with Kijiji too. Even moreso on Kijiji with scams and those wanting to take advantage of you with some sort of BS sob-story and to ship it somewhere.

Don't think they are fake messages
Try shopping on marketplace... when you see an ad, and click "Ask for Details"
It generates that "Is this available" message

Here you go.... my theory is correct.... I just had a user say he did nothing on their end.... FB is a scam!
