    Today I rec'd a pop-up while on Google that had the Amazon logo with the shopping cart on my phone but it had no way to X out. It asked you to spin the wheel and it said that I won $1000 gift card and had five minutes to claim it. I then was able to close it and looked and found a similar story about it but it involves FB.
