Someone keeps messaging friends with what appears to be my messenger account.   I've gone through Facebook's procedure twice, changing the password, tightening my security, and yet it continues.   I've been dealing with this for over a week.  Any suggestions?

They could be spoofing your account and if that is the case there is not much you can do. You and / or your friends should report this to Facebook Support.

On your side, change your password again and use a couple of special characters in the password

You need to secure all accounts that can be used to recover/change password
