Beware of Apple iPhone 7 Test, Survey, Reward or Giveaway Scams

If you have seen iPhone 7 survey announcements while browsing the internet, asking you to complete surveys in order to receive an Apple iPhone 7, please ignore them. The announcements are survey scams created by cyber-criminals to trick their potential victims into completing surveys. What the cyber-criminals behind the scam have done, is to create pop-up messages, advertisements and social media posts, in an attempt to trick their potential victims into completing surveys, by claiming that they were randomly selected to receive/test a brand new iPhone 7, due to be released in 2016. The scam also claims that Apple is looking for additional users to test the IPhone 7, and attempts to trick the potentials victims into acting fast, by claiming there are limited spots available.

Please continue below.

The Apple iPhone 7 Survey, Reward or Giveaway Scam

Congratulations! You’ve been randomly selected to test the brand new iPhone 7 (arriving 2016)!

This is not a joke! You’re invited to test our brand new iPhone 7 before its release to the public. We’re looking for (20) additional Apple users for feedback so we can make this the best iPhone ever. If you’d like to join our private test group, simply answer the 4 questions below, As a “thank you” we’ill even send you an 16 GB iPhone 6, free of charge! Act fast, since spots are limited.

Question 1 of 4: Do you currently own any Appl products?

iPhone 7 Survey Scam

Most of the iPhone 7 scams that we have seen so far, take potential victims to the following fake iPhone 7 or Apple website: “www.iphone.com-rewards.xyz,” "www.best-iphone6s.com" or www.free-iphone6s.com, where they will be asked fill out surveys.

The information collected by the survey may be sent to spammers, or scammers, who may use the information to attempt to rip their potential victims off. And, the cyber-criminals behind the iPhone 7 scam, may receive payment for each completed survey. Therefore, they will make millions if people continue to complete the surveys, thinking they will receive an Apple iPhone 7.

    Got this today only, it was for a $1000 walmart gift card or $1000 Visa gift card.

    hxxp://Usarewardspot.com was the survey site & it gave a short survey, then a smiley face graphic with this below:

    "Now just take our survey and follow
    instructions to get your $1000 Walmart Gift Card!"

    When clicked on it take you to a file download link. I did not download nor do anything further.

    To remove all annoyances do the following:

    1. Pull down notifications.

    2. Long press the annoyance and press the! point.

    3. In Site Settings press the garbage can under Usage; set Permissions to BLOCK; then press CLEAR & RESET.

    This ensures that the annoyances don't return on reboot.

    Do this for each annoyance.

    You Are Welcomed.

    The scam showed up on my computer page (I am only 12)and I knew it was probably a scam and enter a bunch of bogus answers.
    For example Gmail: [email protected]

    I received the iPhone 7 scam today. Without thinking I went through the survey but I gave no other information, close the website as I realised that it cannot be true. By answering these question, could they collect any personal information from my phone like Apple ID etc ...

    • Posted: 2017-08-31T14:06:47 by info

      No, they cannot collect your Apple ID or credentials, unless you were taken to a phishing website that asked you to sign-in. But, remember, online scammers collect personal information to sell to our scammers, who will use it to contact their potential victims in an attempt to scam them.

    I received the IPHONE 7 scam today. It was suppose to be from my carrier, the maker of the phone I have & the IPHONE manufacturer. I thought something was up since I know who manufactures my phone & it is not apple. I took the survey. However my McAfee would not let me go to the site to fill out any information. The scam is still going on.

      Naturally that's how some people are, so you have to be careful when you are online. Cybercriminals make billions of dollars every year robbing people online. And, they will stop, because they are getting rich from it. With use of technology, they operate from countries where it is hard to track down and prosecute them. That is why we try our best to educate people about cybercrimes.

I powered my phone off, then turned it back on, then opened Chrome, and the stupid popup was still there. I can't access anything else in the Chrome app, because the pop up won't let me.

      Try removing Chrome and then installing it again. Remember, that will clear all your data in Chrome.

      Here are instructions:

      . Start your iPhone and go to the Home screen (press the Home button below the screen, or touch all five fingers to the screen and draw them inwards like a claw.)

      . Find the icon for the app you want to delete, and press and hold it for a few seconds.

      . It (and all the other icons on the screen) will start to wobble gently, and a small cross will appear in a grey circle by each.

      . Tap the cross, then confirm you want to delete the app.

        Thanks! I wonder about doing this, but I'm not sure what it would do. What do you mean when you say it will clear all my data in Chrome?

        delete


        • Posted: 2016-03-22T11:46:02 by info

          It will clear your browser's cookies, cache, history (websites that you have visited) and usernames/passwords stored by Chrome. You will not lose any critical data/information.

        You will be receiving a lot of call s from scammers who will attempt to scam you. Just be careful going forward.

      Nothing bad will happen unless you allow it. The scammers will use the information that you have to sent, to attempt to scam you, so be careful next time, especially of email messages and phone calls that request your personal and financial information, and ask you to send money.

    Had this survey. Answered the four questions, but when it asked for personal details I exited.

  • Posted: 2016-02-27T03:47:27 by an anonymous user from or near: Leeds, England, United Kingdom

    Completed the survey as it only asked 4 questions about what features I'd use on an I phone but then didn't continue with filling in any of my personal details as it seemed too good to be true and would never divulge my personal information to an unknown pop-up. As other have said it did look legit with the apple logo.

    I was on a website and the following came across the screen: "Rewards Center," and I clicked it and the message popped up there and there was no "Cancel" button. I did the steps below to correct the problem:

    Step 1: Press home button twice.
    Step 2: Swipe Safari away.
    Step 3: While it loads again click x.
    Step 4: Continue on browsing.

  • Posted: 2016-02-17T05:47:36 by an anonymous user from or near: Billund, Denmark

    Since Safari is locked with this scam pop-up, is there any risk on pressing OK, and then just close down (not completing any survey etc.)? Or will there be another way to clear the phone and get rid of the pop up?

    • Posted: 2016-03-01T01:22:12 by an anonymous user from or near: Portland, Oregon, United States

      I turned the phone off and back on, then went directly to SafarI in settings and deleted history files. The survey popped up 2-3 times and went through the process until it was finally eliminated.

      There is no risk of pressing "Ok", just don't complete any survey or download any apps on the website that you will be taken to.

      If you are having problems removing the pop-up from Safari, please read other users' comments for instructions to remove.

    This is happening in Melbourne, Australia. I had the same message (except that it says for Samsung users instead of Apple) popped up when I turned on my phone without going into any web site.

    Took me a while to get rid of the message because it just doesn't go away. It looks real with the apple logo and the appledaily/ web site but I don't believe it as it is too good to be true.

    It popped up on my phone a few minutes ago. I tried deleting the pop up, but I couldn't get it to go away so I turned my phone on/off and deleted all my internet cache before it could pop up again.

    "I had this iPhone 7 scam pop up on my phone today not with either of the sites listed above it was best-iphone6s.com

    The part that made it look legit was that it had a pop up inside my phone like a regular announcement I would receive on my phone."

          Just to be clear, if we answer the questions, but do not provide any personal information, then there should be no further concern, correct? Other than the scammers maybe attempting to contact again?
