    This has only happend twice but I get an add and message from an account on snapchat saying "lets ****" then it sends a link which is probably a virus. I just block them

    I am worried how do these spam things find my username?

    Nope! Don't worry about it. If you have posted your snapchat on the internet, e.g. facebook, twitter post, public chat like disqus, it is quite likely that either a (spider) bot or someone has got your username and spammed you.

    If you are positive you have not posted it online, some of them may bruteforce usernames and generate a list of possible usernames to use a spam.

    I've had these - go on settings and 'who can contact me' and change it from everyone to friends
