Note: We do not promote or recommend the above (second) method as somehow you are breaching the community standards of Facebook.

Anonymous Facebook Message Cheating
The anonymous cheating message on Facebook is not a feature. Some people make random fake accounts and message other Facebook users “randomly,” telling their partner is cheating on them. Often, it’s a prank, or the sender is just having fun.
Unfortunately, not all of the anonymous Facebook messages about cheating are fake.
Sometimes your family members or close friends text you are saying that your boyfriend/girlfriend is cheating on you.
It is better if you must confirm the news and then immediately block the anonymous sender’s account.

How To Find Out Who Sent An Anonymous Facebook Message?
You can find out who sent you anonymous message on Facebook by following ways:
1. Go To Their Profile Page
Click on the profile icon of the anonymous sender and go through their profile page and check if they have left any hints for their real name.
Go to their timeline and posts and check the comment section.
If the anonymous person who has sent the message has a username, you can search for their name on Google or Bing and check if they have any real personal information that you can use to find out who the person is.
2. Send Them A Friend Request
You may think this is a silly way to find out who has sent you the anonymous message, but at times some Facebook users have their settings ‘only to friends’ where only their friends can see their timelined and posts.
So when you send a friend request, and the anonymous sender accepts it, you will most likely find the important information to find the actual identity of the sender.
Note: Do not send the friend request if the anonymous message contains death threats or other serious warnings.
3. Contact The Law Enforcement Authorities
if the message contains death threats, harassment, sexual content, or other sensitive topics, we recommend you to immediately contact the law enforcement on Facebook.
Avoid replying to their message or panicking after reading the message. And make sure you have saved the message on your mobile phone before the sender deletes it.
You can contact the law enforcement authorities by sending them a request from this link https://www.facebook.com/records/login/.
You can send anonymous messages to other Facebook users by either using an email or creating another(fake) Facebook account.
However, it is better if you can contact the person directly without being shady and attempting unethical ways to send a message.
Facebook allows its users to post anonymously only in Facebook groups. You can follow the above steps to send an anonymous post, maintain decency in your message, and don’t breach the community guidelines of Facebook.
Some anonymous users may send you silly cheating messages. Simply ignore them.
If you are insecure about the message, you can confirm with your partner or family members as there are high chances that your friends are playing a prank on you.
