Beware of "www.swinklr.com" - it is a Fraudulent Website Created by Scammers

"www.swinklr.com" is a fake survey-taking, voucher and gift give-away website that should not be trusted. The fraudulent website was created by scammers to trick their potential victims into taking surveys and sharing the same fake website with their friends either through WhatsApp, Facebook or other social media websites, by promising them gifts, vouchers and other prizes. The surveys were created by scammers to harvest their potential victims’ personal information, to be used to scam them and to make the fake website popular, by promising potential victims gifts if they share with a few friends. Also, potential victims who complete the surveys may also be tricked into signing up for premium phone services and downloading malicious applications.

    Is my personal security now compromised after having done the survey?
    Can the scammers get to my banking details, for instance, just because I completed the survey?

      Only if they ask you for your financial information and you send it to them.

      Remember, the scammers will ask for basic information and then aftèr request financial information. The scammers will claim they need the information in order for you to collect your so-called prizes.

    "Hi, I just want you to be aware that someone is trying to use whatsapp as a way to scam people. Today, December 21, 2016 there is Wal-Mart Free $200 voucher promo going around. Make people aware that this is a scam. Probably even WHATSAPP should contact people and let them know. It is unfair for those that are gullible and fall for such scams."

    I received a whatapps from my friend and open the website at http://swinklr .com/parkson-vouchers. My phone vibrate once I clicked on the website, what does it mean? Are they hacked into my handphone that's why it vibrate? Please advise.

    I complete the survey questions and discontinued when it lead me to my Whatapps contact list, I didn't share out to my friends and didn't give out any email address. Am I good from here?

    delete


    • Posted: Nov 2, 2016 at 3:23 AM by info

      No, your phone was not hacked. The vibration is caused by a set of instructions sent to your phone by the web page.

      And, yes, you are good, you have nothing to worry about. You did the right thing by discontinuing the survey.

      The scammers will contact you in an attempt to scam you. So, be careful.

      Also, you may have signed up for premium phone service when you sent the SMS, therefore, please check your phone bill or statement to see if you have been charged for such service. If you have, contact your telephone service provider and let them know you were tricked or scammed into signing up for such service.

    I have opened the link, completed the survey and then forward the link to a few friends. Yet I did not submit any personal info or download any apps, I have scanned my phone and the antivirus apps told I am safe. Any problem I should worry about was I hacked or installed an illegal programme?

      Remove the app and look out for phishing or malicious email messages from cyber-criminals. They will use the information that you have sent, to contact and convince you into falling for their scams.
