How to Report Harassment on Facebook Messenger
Users simply need to follow the following steps;

2- Scroll down to the option reading ‘Something’s Wrong’
3- Select from the given options what exactly is the issue, such as harassment, hate speech, or pretending to be someone else
Once the user has selected the appropriate category, they will receive an option to block or ignore the other individual.
When your report is successful, you’ll receive a confirmation message.
