Receiving messages from people you don't know online...

Hey!

Have you ever received any messages from people you don't know online? Rather than just scammers or bot, I'm wondering if other people have had people messaging them (on like Whatsapp or Snapchat) who you haven't met in real life. Do you know how they get your number?
99% they are in fact scammers or bots - they've either hoovered up your number from online somewhere or bought it as part of some sort of sucker list. Why else would someone message a stranger in such a way?
