Beware of Google Chrome Quiz Contest and Survey Scams

If you are asked to take part in a Google Chrome Quiz contest or survey in order for a chance to win an Apple iPhone, Nexus, Sony Play Station or some other prizes, please do not. This is because Google, the maker of the Chrome Web browser, currently doesn't have a Google Chrome Quiz contest or survey, offering its users a chance to win prizes. Scammers or cyber-criminals are using fake quizzes and contests to trick their potential victims into disclosing their personal and financial information, which they will use to rip them off.

      Giving your information is still safe until u give OTP or secure transaction passwords to the scammers. So don't share your personal details like mobile number or OTP for any transaction to anyone.

      Contact your bank, dispute fraudulent charges already made(if there is any), to have your bank cancel them and refund your bank. Then, cancel the credit card you used on the website and get a new one.

    I gave a significant amount of information, before getting seriously suspicious and then got off.
    Am I in any danger of Identity theft?
    I did give address and birthdate, but no banking or credit card info.

    The scammer is currently trying to get my info right now. My concern is that he also has access to an email I received today, so it goes further than just sending out random Google Chrome Quiz Contest and Survey messages to random people.

    What pees me off is I cannot contact Google Chrome at all to report this. What can I do? They say you should report fraud but make it impossible to do so...

    delete


    • Posted: May 29, 2018 7:51 PM by info

      The scam has already been reported. And, the scammers can only send you emails, and display popups when you visit certain websites. So, just ignore the emails and popup messages.

    If you are asked to pay a nominal sum by credit card for delivery for something worth several hundred pounds, ask yourself why. Could it be that they simply want your credit card details?

    I answered the Chrome user quiz but I didn't give them any more info because then the warning flashed up on my screen that if I continued I could be hacked. I shouldn't even have answered the quiz, I should've remembered the mantra: If SOMETHING SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT USUALLY IS, you RARELY get anything for free, ESPECIALLY on the internet they always get something from you in return, even if it's just personal information, which you think is harmless.

    It could result in identity theft so think carefully before you give information to just anyone. I noticed that I was only allowed to "like" the quiz and when I tried to post a comment on the site warning that this is a scam of course couldn't. The picture of the phone that someone supposedly received is blurry and shows an unmarked box that could be anything.

      You gave them your debit card info, which means they can charge it at anytime. Contact your bank and let them know you have unknowingly used your card on a fraudulent website. They will advise you.

    I Just had the same type of thing on my cell phone -- it really looked like google -- I answered the quiz and picked a prize. I did fill out things with my name and address, but when they asked for 19.95 in shipping and handling -- I went off the site -- could I be in danger?

      No, you are not in any danger once you didn't give out sensitive information, or download and installed an app.

      No, that is not enough information to steal your identity. But, the scammers will contact and use the information that you have sent in an attempt to scam you.

    Hello - This just happened on my LG phone. I have no idea if any of the answers I answered was correct and surprised that they said all 4 were correct. Then I saw that others said they purposefully answered them incorrectly and still got them "right". It was a popup on my phone, so I thought it was legitimate, since I don't get pop-ups. It's weird, because right before that popped up, an app that I recently uploaded popped up to ask me to upgrade, which doesn't usually happen. That app was "speechnotes" (which is an amazing app) and the advertisement in the display is from an app called Wish Inc.

    I think I accidentally clicked on the ad and that's when the scam popped up. Before I paid for "shipping", I read the terms and conditions. Basically, the scam is from a company called "Premium Content Network". In 10 days, they charge you $69.99 every 45 days with the same credit card you provide for shipping. That's when I started to do a search and found your site. I signed up with you guys, so I could post my experience.

      After downloading and opening the Bible Gateway app from the App Store, a pop-up message opened in SafarI saying it was from Google offering free iPhone 7 or PS4, cruise or up to $500 gifts after completing a quiz. To claim the prize, personal info and credit card have to be provided. Below is an extract from the terms and conditions that also have to be accepted as well as the URL of the site. I can't believe this Bible Gateway app would allow this type of scams. I regret having to delete this app and place this as a negative review since it is completely inappropriate for a Christian related app to expose their users to scams.

      Extract from the terms and conditions:
      "Recurring Membership Fees
      At the end of the 10-day trial, your membership in the Premium Content Network will automatically continue unless and until canceled. You agree that for the Savings Benefits portion of the Membership, the Premium Content Network will charge the same credit card you provided a fee of sixty-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($69.99) 8 times per year starting at the end of your ten day trial membership and approximately every 45 days thereafter unless canceled (the "Saving Benefits Fee") In addition, you agree that for the Magazine Subscription portion of the membership, Premium Content Network will automatically charge the same credit card you provided a fee of $73.99. 4 times per year, starting at the end of the trial period and approximately every 75 days thereafter unless canceled. You may cancel either portion or both portions of the membership to avoid future billing and you may receive a refund if you cancel within 30 days of any charge. To cancel call customer support at (844) 340-3897 or email support@superiorcustomerservices.com."

I started to fill in the survey questions, but as they got more invasive, I decided to abort the survey. Since then I have bombarded with emails and phone calls from people who want to ask me even more questions. I can't believe I was such a fool. Don't follow my example.

      Google doesn't have such promotion. The fake promotion was created by cybercriminals to trick potential victims into entering their personal and credit card information on a fake website.

      Therefore, Google did not receive your credit card information, the cybcercriminals have instead. Keep an eye on your credit card statement for unauthorized transactions and report any to your bank, because the cyber-criminals will use your credit card fraudulently.

Answered 3 questions and confirmed mob no but then alarm bells went off when received txt saying entry would cost 2 x 4euro each week.

    There was option to text STOP to 57721 which I did but am concerned have left myself vunerable to finacial fraud even though did not give any financial information. Am I safe? I will report this scam to my local Supervalu store as am sure they would like to warn their customers. This scam is very clever as if they only referred to winning phones I would instantly ignore anything like that...PLEASE WARN PEOPLE that they include vouchers for local trustworthy stores to lull you into false sense security. I thought I would always recognise a scam but this one came close to fooling me I have actually never won anything in my life so should have known better than to think my luck had turned!

    Received via email:

    "I am petrified, and I think I am really stupid. Yesterday I was on YAHOO, looking to buy a dog, and this completion appeared on my screen, said it was from GOOGLE, and it was to win an I PHONE 7, I took part in the competion, and was told I had WON THE I PHONE 7, I could choose the colour and everything, I did that, then it asked for my address and postcode plus DOB, so that the phone could be shipped out.

    Just now, I had a nice gentleman phone me, he spoke about the phone that I had WON, and asked if I would like a free SIM card, with O2, saying that the new phone would cost me a lot of money, if I was to go with pay as you go!!! I have his telephone number, as I asked him to phone me, tomorrow, when my husband is here.

    I have his phone number, if you would like it.

    Please tell me, that this is not a hoax, am a very vulnerable person."

      Dear Online Threats Team,

      You see I don't know if this GOOGLE COMPETITION thing I did last night is true or not, have I won an I phone 7?? Are you able to tell me??
      Ok, so this guy that phoned me this morning offering me A FREE SIM CARD 02 pay as you go, sounded genuine, or was he?

      His phone number was:- 0161 814 9316

      He said he would PHONE me again tomorrow evening, so that I could tell him if I wanted the FREE SIM CARD or not. You see if I have won the phone, I would give it to my husband, as his is broken!! I never win anything usually.

      If you could kindly look into this, I would be so grateful.

    I had a pop up telling me I was one of 10 lucky winners of an iphone7 and to select 3 answers to a quiz which were correct. Then was asked to give my name address and mobile number and e-mail address which I did but then something felt wrong as it asked if I was a homeowner and then lots of other offers were listed I.e home improvements and so forth so.

    I went no further. Not sure if they got my details as I didn't press continue.
    Am I now at risk? My phone then rang (withheld) but I didn't answer and no message was left.

      You are not at risk if you do not follow their instructions. Since they have your telephone number they will continue to call you in an attempt to scam you.

      If you are continously being call by the scammers, contact your service provider for help.

      Yes, you are ok. As long as you did not provide them with any personal and financial information, download an app, or was taken to a website that asked for your online account user name and password.

        So I just did one ( I feel dumb). It was from Google chrome. It said every Sunday they give out 1000 dollar gift cards for being a loyal google chrome user.

        Filled out the address part and my phone number number and financial info. Answered some questions and left. It said my card was reserved but I immediately felt weird about it.

        Is there anything bad they can do with that info? If so what can I do? They had a box you could check agreeing to have them contact you with offers and agree to their terms and I didn't check the box. Kinda worried right now.

        • Posted: Jan 1, 2017 1:43 PM by info

          If you gave them your credit card information, please contact your bank for help before the card is used fraudulently. Otherwise, there is nothing to worry about, just be careful next time, because the scammers will contact and attempt to scam you.

        I gave them a fake name, but my email, and then I nearly gave them my post code. Of course I wrote it down but I didn't press continue because I wanted to check it was true, then I found this.

        So I deleted my post code information and went off the website, but does this mean they seen it even though I didn't press continue.

    • Posted: Aug 8, 2016 2:15 AM by info

      What do you mean by his account numbers? How was the payment made? If you are referring to his credit card, yes, they can continue to charge his card. Therefore, your friend will have to contact his bank and have them stop the transactions, or get a new card. The bank will advice him.
