Posted: Jul 7, 2018 at 8:31 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Kellyville, New South Wales, Australia I have been sent emails and survey's to join Stan and I would receive a free iPhone x, but I didn't bother with it I just deleted the email as I thought it may be a scam.
At least this way I know that I was right. Posted: Jul 6, 2018 at 5:34 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia I have answered the three questions and then it showed that it's detecting my ip address then lead me to the free iphone x page.
I quickly closed the page. My worry now is they have detected my ip address, will it be a problem? Posted: Jul 1, 2018 at 3:33 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi, India I am also being scammed by this.
I had already given my details and debit card credit card details but everytime I proceed for payment, it always says CVV is not correct. I have tried multiple times but didn't succeed so I stopped it. Are my cards in danger? Posted: Jul 1, 2018 at 1:25 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India HI I just filled up the survey along with my name and address, but when it asked for my card details I did not give it and closed the window coz I then realised this was fishy.
Would this enable them to get access to my bank details? Please let me know - much appreciated! Posted: Jul 1, 2018 at 1:00 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Tolichowki, Telangana, India I just had this survey.I gave my address but when I was asked for $1.00,I got suspicious.I looked it up online the website - techsuperpromo.cc but it didn't show any results.
I was in two minds giving my card details for the Iphone X,but thought why on earth will Google give Iphone X to users,just for answering 6-7 simple questions? The Iphone X here in India costs about INR 85000.00.So,common sense prevailed and I closed the page.Wish I didn't enter my address,though.
This is definitely a scam.There is no such thing as a free lunch and there definitely isn't anything free about an Iphone or whatever other products being offered. Posted: Jun 30, 2018 at 9:47 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Pune, Maharashtra, India Same story .
Infact when I just clicked next, it displayed all my details automatically. How ? Simple ! while I was answering the questions, they were extracting details ! The next button takes you to page wherein you have to fill in all the details of your credit card. To assure you it is authentic, every thing looks like original, like verified by visa etc.
Thanks to my AntI Virus Quick Heal, it alarmed me by poping up a notice that this website could be harmful. My elementary question is if Google is storing all our info while we are browsing, and selling it to politicians and others, how and why does it allow this under Google trademark ?
Probably they are too busy analysing our data than this scam data. Ha Ha Ha Posted: Jun 28, 2018 at 1:04 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Vernon, British Columbia, Canada I just received a pop up saying I won a prize from google if completed a 4 question survey. then it asked me for my personal information and my credit card number telling me that I will be getting a Galaxy S9 for only 1$ shipping cost.
As I read the terms and conditions it stats that I will be given a 7 day free trial to some business service and that if I don't cancel within that time frame they will charge me for a membership of 49.99. it's definitely a scam so don't give any personal or financial information to this kind of pop up. it does look pretty official but don't be fooled Posted: Jun 27, 2018 at 6:18 AM by info Here is another scam: "Dear user, congratulations!

Posted: Jun 25, 2018 at 7:28 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Turin, Piedmont, Italy I also fell into the "trap" of walemedia, flattered by the fact that I could have an iPhone in "gift" in the month of March and May I found two debits of € 49.95 each on the credit card I had indicated.
I would like to interrupt this situation; what can I do? Posted: Jun 19, 2018 at 6:15 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Hamilton, Queensland, Australia HI everyone! While browsing on the internet a sign popped up saying "congratulations!
you have been selected by google for our google gifts". It only gave me the option of saying "Ok" and immediately after a tab was open that lead to this website: http://www.google.com-win-a-free-gift-fromwalmart-amazon-iphone.febrd.com/ At this stage, you have 3 minutes to answer three questions: 1) Who founded Google?
2) Where is Google based? 3) When was Google founded? After you answer these questions you are taken to another website where, since you have successfully answered the three questions, you get to choose your prize.
You have 3 options: amazon gift card, I phone and something else (can't remember) but it only allows you to choose the iphone. Afterwards, it takes you to the following website to choose the colour of the iphone that you supposedly just won and it gives you 20 minutes that run to the next website where you complete your personal details (name, email, date of birth) : http://app.ln1.quiztionnaire.com/...
Then, it takes you to another website that says "where can we send your prize"? I put a fake address, fake email, fake phone number, and it all takes you to very personal questions about your incomes, home ownership, insurance and whatnot.
No bank account details though. fter that, it takes you to a cut out voucher that says: STEP 1: Click the button below to call the win computer, STEP 2: Press "0" to claim your prize You have 20/30 seconds to do it, but if you exceed the 30 seconds it doesn't make you lose your "opportunity".
The phone number that pops up is 1902 224 422. Anyway, I didn't make the call. My gut tells me it is all fake and that we should stay away from these websites.
I hope this helped someone else. Camila Posted: Jun 18, 2018 at 2:42 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan I got this: "CONGRATULATIONS!

Posted: Jun 8, 2018 at 12:11 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa I filled in the credit card info but I received an error message.

Damned if they are not using SEEMINGLY CREDIBLE SITES to perpetrate this scam. backhander.cc looks like a CREDIBLE SITE til you read a little , it's a site seemingly devoted to Polo ??? AND ,the Delft Technologys leads you to a Brazilian University of Technology. In my experience this is TYPICAL of SCAMMERS , cause most of these Clowns come from institutions of Higher Learning , thinking they're Smarter than the rest of us.
The "let's Fleese the Flock" mentality . You may Disagree , but like I said ,MOST/95% I have found have have connections to Universities ,Colleges ,Institutions in Silicon Valley ,Washington ,etc. The 5% Others ,Chinese at the Top of the list with third World Countries filling in the bottom of the list. Gonna go back to that page now and fill in some PHONY NUMBERS. Hope they follow the Fake Bread Crumbs to an Empty plate .

When Google was founded and where is its headquarters and I answered them and provided some personal information They have said your answer is correct we are giving you iPhoneX but answered one of the question wrong they counted it correct from there. I got the hint that this is fake. Please tell me am I right about it and now what to do about personal information Posted: Apr 25, 2018 at 2:48 PM by info Not necessarily.
The scammers may change their merchant name and may attempt to charge your card again under the new name, which may bypass the block created by your bank. I would recommend getting a new card and canceling the current one. But, talk to your bank about this first. Posted: Apr 25, 2018 at 6:52 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Marathi, Maharashtra, India I have lost 20 rs this morning from my bank a/c via debit card.
They said you won Iphone x & now only you have to pay $1. There's also a order number displayed which I receive at my home. I have screen shots also. After processing of my transaction, suddenly the website has changed to the name megabook & payment has been deducted from megabook website not from google iphonex. This is really cheap activities which should not be done & all types of these scam on internet should be strictly prohibited.
Its a cyber crime & we must raise our voice against it. It's not a matter of my 20rs. It's a matter of our money, the all people's money by which these types of scammers make 20 rs to 20 crore.

If you gave them your credit card information, contact your bank before they start charging your card. They will randomly charge your card without your consent.

I remember the site as in a page of sale and promotion of iPhones, buying there sends you to ebooki.cc, in my case, being there, I just closed the page because I was not interested, but it seems that it was enough for them to access my data and steal me something over fifty dollars ...

Posted: Apr 16, 2018 at 4:16 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria I got my own this evening, when I was searching something online, behold a notification piped up, they said, techno is giving out iPhone x to their loyal customers that I have been selected also,I wanted to quit but I saw about 4 comments saying that they have gotten theirs, even though, they thought it was scam, I was motivated to try, they asked me some survey questions, like who created Google?
what year? Which social media is related to Google,etc, and I was congratulated, and they demanded for my details, including, name, email, postal code, city, I gave them, the next thing they asked was my card no, the already put my name as the cardholder, expiry date of the card, last 4 digit, I didn't give them this, I paused to google if it's a scam, and that's how I got to this page, where am commenting right now.
Posted: Apr 16, 2018 at 7:59 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria Im surprised because everything you just said happened to me, but in this case it was itel, and I was told to have won an iphone x, after filling my personal details I was asked to put in my card details, I then paused and landed on this page. Posted: Apr 16, 2018 at 3:01 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Edgware, England, United Kingdom I received an online message this evening while on google saying I was one of 50 people chosen for a free iPhone,could not get the message off the screen ( only allowed me to press yes) gave my phone details then got scam text messages on my phone.l Posted: Apr 14, 2018 at 10:37 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan I just got the same message as I was downloading something, a new tab opened and it said all of the above mentioned.
At first I was like this is too good to be true but then I was like it’s from GOOGLE PAKISTAN So I did the stupid thing and did the survey which asked 3 questions which were ‘Are you sarisfied with Google?’ And ‘Do you recommend Google?’ And ‘What is your favourite Quality(something like that) of Google’ and I answered the questions as ‘Yes’ , ‘Yes’ , and ‘Service’ for the last one then another link loaded on the same page which was in Spanis(and I had to literally google what it was saying) and I so stupidly entered details like full Name, email Address, Postal Code, MY HOME ADDRESS,and my city.
After which I submitted it, I came across another form which required Bank details and that’s when I started to doubt if This be really is real.
And spend 2 and a half hours searching ways to contact GOOGLE and see if this is true and then I suddenly wondered if they actually give gifts or prizes to users? And hence, I’m here. I feel so ridiculous for even believing all that crap (when I was never one to believe such things) but what I’m really worried about is Am I really Safe?!?
After all I gave them my details such as My home address,email address,etc. Please Help. I’m really worried here. What should I do? Posted: Apr 10, 2018 at 6:10 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Ilford, England, United Kingdom for example google.com? this is where it comes from! same company! ..I use both, facebook, and google, I thought it's convenient, but after this, and reading, and understanding, what are these companies about, i'm considering just to quit.
...witch means, back to stone age. ...no phone, or normal PC. ....maybe Linux, but.. ...they are layers, nothing is for free! Posted: Apr 10, 2018 at 1:45 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria I knew it was all scam. Came across it while browsing and immediately I went on Google search page and searched for it... Then got to this place 😂😂😂 don't trust anything you see online.. If you need iPhone X, go buy it from. AMAZON. 😂😂 Posted: Apr 9, 2018 at 2:08 PM by info The scammers can use your credit card information to make local purchases.
In order words, they can sell your information to scammers who are local to your country, who will use the card information fraudulent. So I do not think you are safe. Contact your bank to verify. Posted: Apr 9, 2018 at 10:26 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia I am from Ethiopia and I saw the gifts but below the gifts, there were comments from users, and they asked me some questions and I answered all then they ask my name and phone number then my card number which I didn't give them.
I have a question about the users' comment saying "oh um so lucky I won iphone x and it arrived just today". Posted: Apr 9, 2018 at 2:06 PM by info Your bank may have blocked the transaction from a certain merchant, but the scammers can change the merchant's name and try to charge your card again. Therefore, contact your bank for help or check your credit card statements for fraudulent transactions and report them to your bank.
Posted: Apr 7, 2018 at 5:43 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Lusaka, Zambia HI I also received the same sms from the MTN that I have won an iPhone x, I just entered my names and address.so are they working together, I mean even the MTN are in same category?? please help me before I go further!!! Posted: Apr 6, 2018 at 2:36 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Bradley Stoke, England, United Kingdom My partner has done a question survey and I am getting really sick to death of the goddam phone calls off the survey even though he ticked the box to say that he was not intended at all in receiving anything to do with anything that they were offering to pass our address and information on to they are still sending me emails and asking for me and my partner to give other people phone number and email address and they are hounding me and my partner and it's starting to become a damn nuisance.
Posted: Apr 5, 2018 at 2:50 PM by info Yes, but the scammers have your credit card information and can change their merchant name to get around the block. So, check your credit card statements carefully and report fraudulent transactions to your bank. Your bank may cancel that credit card and give you a new one. Posted: Apr 5, 2018 at 3:23 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Caracas, Distrito Federal, Venezuela Theft of data through false web pages. This type of scams is one of the most used by Philippe Ballesio and his criminal organization.
It consists in cloning web pages of banking entities and, like many people when they want to consult their account statement, they do not usually write the link of the bank's website in the Internet bar, but they use a search engine.
This action means that, from the search engines, you can probably access a cloned page created by Philippe Ballesio. By entering the username and password of these sites, it is certain that the data of the "clients" will be stolen, which will allow the band of criminals led by Philippe Ballesio to enter the real account to make transactions and steal the balance banking. Posted: Mar 26, 2018 at 11:37 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India I Also received this kind of notification when I opened the google chrome website, first of all, I was very happy.
I started moving forward but it clicked my mind that why it is not coming local newspaper or anywhere else. Also, I was a bit confident because the web address was starting with https:// which gave me a feeling that this is a secure website. But to my full satisfaction, I used google chrome to google this promotion & I landed at this page which gives me the confidence that the promotion scheme website is false & it can lead to a fraud, so I immediately closed the website.
Be aware of such kind of fraud. Posted: Mar 13, 2018 at 4:35 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada Here's a link to a site that popped up while checking out 3-d sterograms using chrome on my tablet.

No deduction from account and nothing happened in the browser. Is my account secure? Posted: Mar 6, 2018 at 9:57 PM by info No, your account is not safe because you have given the scammers the information you need in order to take money from your account.

Posted: Mar 1, 2018 at 12:35 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Perth, Western Australia, Australia I fell for a SURVEY, on the media, Phone will arrive in three days .... nothing.

Posted: Feb 6, 2018 at 3:19 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Coincidentally or on purpose the target zone are Africa and Asia region. Perhaps these conmen had easier prey from these places than in more developed country where the iPhone sells cheap and people are more rational.
Posted: Feb 5, 2018 at 8:48 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Dela Paz Norte, Central Luzon, Philippines I was asked some stuff about Google, like who is the founder, where is the headquarters of Google, when it was established. It also says that my phone blackberry 10 (I'm using a z10 blackberry) is selected.
So, I almost believed in it. but when I was asked about the details, I realized its a scam. Please do something to get rid of it.

Since this appeared through the Apple news app, I could not make it go away. It wasn’t in the browser. So I deleted the news app and reinstalled, then I was ok. Since I backed out did any of my information get through.

Good thing that I read it from you. thanks man Posted: Feb 1, 2018 at 9:45 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria I saw this just mins ago, in my case, it was a compensation for Opera Mini users in my country Nigeria.
I already knew such promos are fake so I took my time to feed them with fake information. at the end they requested that I pay 1$ for shipment cost, lol...! Anyways thanks so much for this information. :-) Posted: Feb 1, 2018 at 9:14 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Accra, Greater Accra, Ghana It happened to me but I trusted opera's privacy so much that I believed the scam.
But why would you guys allow such scam with all your huge privacy. I'm totally disappointed, I guess I should be afraid to store any information on Google now since it's privacy is a bit shaky. Posted: Jan 31, 2018 at 10:15 PM by an anonymous user from or near: New Delhi, Delhi, India Why do you let such fake ads on your search engine?
I respect google how it provides privacy to its user. but, scammer got a new way to sniffing. please, you must fix it else google users will get shorted away.

Posted: Jan 31, 2018 at 1:33 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa aaarrrrgghhh... can't believe I fell for this! (new mom - I blame the lack of sleep) My alarm bells finally went off when I reached the payment page, which is where I stopped.
However, I now realise that they have my details [*face-palm-plant!*] Besides blocking the flood of spam emails I expect I'll be receiving soon, is there anything else I can do to remedy the situation? I've got a good anti-virus - TOUCHING WOOD!! Would appreciate advise. Posted: Jan 31, 2018 at 1:11 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria Thanks be to God that I read your post, almost fall a victim. I tried to pay with my verve ATM card but they rejected it an demanded for MasterCard or Visa Card, I just decided to confirm online before I make payment through my MasterCard.
it looks real, but thank God. this people needed to be stopped. Posted: Jan 30, 2018 at 3:38 AM by an anonymous user from or near: Ongole, Andhra Pradesh, India I got this too. Your cell suddendly starts vibration for a second and this page pops up which says, "Congratulation. You are our Lucky Visiter at Google. Complete the survey...." They give you a survey related to Google chrome.
Ask for your name and address. And then ask you to pay $1 to get a chance to win iphone X.Here a facebook page gets appended where people are commenting...omg I got this ..and the likes. So better be aware of such scams. Posted: Jan 28, 2018 at 4:10 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Lagos, Nigeria I also fell into this trap and went all the way to pay for shipping. I keyed in the wrong postal code and realized what I had done but it was too late because the small database had been submitted.
I felt anxious that my little mistake was going to make me lose my gift, Pfft! I tried to sign in again so I could key in the right postal code and it showed that my email had been registered already so a second purchase couldn't be made. However, it still showed the same number of products available as the first time I saw the site despite its warning that another happy customer was going to get it and that I should hurry.
Later that day, my bank sent me a message that money had been deducted from my account for that purpose, making it all the more genuine. Still not sure about it, I googled the authenticity of such promo only to see this. Oh well, that iPhone x gift would have been really nice. Posted: Jan 24, 2018 at 6:16 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Mandaluyong City, National Capital Region, Philippines I just received this message few minutes ago..but when online payment was ask, I did not proceed in entering my atm card info..it stated that iphone x is available for only 1$..good thing I googled about this hoax..
Posted: Jan 23, 2018 at 11:52 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Manila, National Capital Region, Philippines It just happened to me earlier. I just answered the survey and registered but didn't purchased it for $1 using any card. at last I thought it was a scam. Cause it needed a ATM card number or code to purchase it. What would be possible cause? Id registered my name email place but didn't purchased it at the end.
Posted: Jan 22, 2018 at 9:09 PM by an anonymous user from or near: Colombo, Western, Sri Lanka today, eventually I had that fake offer. Event the date was wrong. today is Tuesday but they say it is Wednesday and actual IP address not connected to google service it's just a trick and DO NOT ENTER YOUR CARD DETAILS.
best fishing dating free iphone x giveaway no survey - Free Iphone X Giveaway (@xavi_husa)
Estimated reading time: 3 minutes Ever came across an online survey that promised you a handsome prize? I did. And here’s what happened. While I was going about my daily work on the Internet, I came across the below page. As you can see, I received a congratulatory message for being a loyal Google user and that my computer’s IP address has been selected for a free Apple iPhone X.
I thought this should be my lucky day! I decided to press on and check how lucky I am. After clicking on one of the blue tabs above, I was asked two more questions about my experience on Google. I answered them with an uncontrolled excitement of grabbing an iPhone, and landed here: And there I was – just a step away from claiming my free iPhone X for just $1.
“How great is that?!”, I thought. So, without wasting a second, I clicked on Claim Now and reached here: ‘Ok, this should be the very last step’, I said to myself. I filled up the form and clicked on Next. This took me to the billing page. And this is where I stopped and closed the window. Why? Because I knew better and asked myself these basic questions before falling for this shoddy trick: 1.
Does it seem logical or reasonable that someone is randomly giving away an iPhone X (that actually costs a fortune) for free or $1?
Answer – No 2. Why would anyone do that? Answer – Not sure. 3. Was I part of a genuine contest ran by the device manufacturer or any trusted organization?
Answer – No 4. Did I read about this contest/survey/offer on a genuine website? Answer – No What would have happened if I had given my credit card details here? In India, credit card transactions are OTP (One Time Password) protected. Which means, even if somebody has your credit card details, they won’t be able to steal your money without the OTP. International online transactions, however, are not OTP protected.
So, if this whole thing is a scam (which definitely looks like it is) and if I had given my credit card information (card no., name, CVV, and expiry date), it would have gone straight to a scammer who could have made several illegal transactions under my name even before I could sense that something was wrong.
The lesson to be learned here • Online offers that look way too amazing and unbelievable should be treated with caution. Ask yourselves the same questions I asked. • Always verify such offers/promotions with the official vendor/manufacturer. • Never click on links or tabs in pages that pop up while you are browsing the Internet. Doing so might install a malware on your computer or take you to an infected page.
• Do not click on links or download attachments received from unknown or unexpected emails – especially if they talk about money or an offer and urge you to take an action immediately. • Protect your computer with an that offers layers of protection – blocks infected and fake websites, prevents unwanted downloads and blocks malware. So, when it comes to tempting deals/offers on the Internet, do not let your excitement cloud your logic. Pause and think before you click.
We are currently observing many websites claiming that your browser developer (or your Internet connection provider) has chosen you (or your IP address) to complete a survey, provide personal information or buy some gadgets to win a free iPhone. Unfortunately, this is a scam. These websites are in no way related to the companies mentioned, including ours. Like other Internet companies, we are trying hard to suppress such websites by blocking them in our browsers.
The fake websites are created and multiplied in many variations and it is very difficult for us to block them all automatically. You can help us by reporting these websites to the Netcraft database, which is one of Opera’s information sources for our built-in fraud and malware protection mechanism ( ).
