Those who do not meet the criteria will not be allowed to advertise. Facebook has never publicly disclosed the removal of these messages until now, and simply quietly deleted them from recipient's Messenger inboxes. Users dont have to ability to delete sent messages, but those at the top of the platform did so anyway, leaving the received messages intact.
