I think that if they have your e-mail address they can invite you into a conversation.

If you right click their name you can select Block.

ok ty vog but if my email address is not on public profile or anything how did they get it any suggestions on that

Maybe totally randomly or using the methods that spammers use. OK, I'm out of my depth now, I'll admit it.

click here How can I keep people I don't know from sending me instant messages?People who know your e-mail address can send you messages even if they are not on your contact list or on your Allow List. You can prevent this by adjusting your privacy settings.

To block messages from everyone who is not on your contact list or on your Allow List:In the Messenger main window, click the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Privacy tab.
Under My Allow List, click All others, and then click Block.
All others moves to your Block list. This forces anyone who wants to send you messages to add you to their own contact list.
