Someone else getting spam messages?

This is the 3rd message I got on the middle of the night or really early in the morning and its increasing the time on my response rate, and its just a spam message
this was the one I got this morning 6 am

“I am Liu from China.
I am trying to work on Up & work.
I want you to lend me your info and computer.
You can earn more than 100USD per month with no work.”

and they include a Link , I’m not sharing or clicking on it cause it have to be risky. I think their trying to get into your PC so if you ever get a message like this do not Click on any link.

OMG.:astonished: thanks for your valuable information …

Thank for sharing your valuable information.

Yes, they already sent me 4 messages. When I go to my inbox, the conversation is no longer available, but it’s really annoying. I’ve reported it.

A lot of people are getting those. Unfortunately, way too many desperate sellers are falling for it, so scammers have every reason to keep doing it.

I got this one…
