Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into visiting phishing and malicious websites created by cyber-criminals to steal their victims' personal and financial information, and infect their computers with malicious software like viruses and Trojan horse.

    You have been chosen to receive a prize from AmazonRewards.com. Just answer these questions correctly in one and a half minutes and you qualify for certain prizes. Ie 1000.00 gift card or a smartphone etc. It happens when I use Amazon. This pop up occurs and I can't get rid of it.

    I did try to claim but in end, they redirected me to choose a deal I picked Apple Music they obviously took that as I received an email from Apple Music thanks for subscribing. I have this already as the library I have for iTunes showed up? How do I make sure I wont be charged for a subscription. Nancy.

      If you have given them your credit card information, please contact your bank for help. Tell your bank that you unknowingly entered your credit card information on a fraudulent website.

    It reads "Hello! Your latest activity qualifies you for a new promotional gift. Access your $50 Reward. only until 11:59PM today. See details."

    I never believe all this stuff I get in email anyway....it just looks so phony...on another note...watch out for variations in a name...like they put a 1 after the name...etc...I got an email from Delta1 .com one time saying that I am being charged like $375 for an airline ticket and to click on the email to verify...I knew it was a scam, reported it and blocked it....the old saying "if it looks too good to be true, it isn't "
