Has anyone gotten a message from "Webnovel"?

So I was checking my inbox today, and got a message from some person saying they were an
"Author Liaison representative, representing TencentLiterature. . " inviting me to publish my story on some app named “Webnovel”

Now the name Tencent already makes me suspicious, but I wanted to know if anyone has gotten similar messages and what I should do about it. If anyone is interested, I could post the whole message (minus their name) below.

Yup! Most of wattpad has gotten at least one of these spam messages by now
