Seriously?

It's likely about as legit as a Nigerian prince scam.

Random strangers offering you pretend money? That doesn't sound fishy at all....

you are getting those on FB because your search engine (google, bing, MSM) have recorded your search and FB looks at recent history and brings it in to your timeline. Plain and simple. Stop looking at bitcoin stuff and the ads will go away. I know this because it explains why I recently saw Overstock stuff on my timeline. I just bought something from that site. Low and behold they expect you to buy another one almost like it. LOL

No they're all scams...I get them all the time. I'm in a crypto group which doesn't help at all.

I probably looked 1 time and that's where the ads are from then...doesn't take much.
