    Hi, I have actually sent through my personal information. It seemed wrong but the advert was sent by a friend I trust so I didn't thinkabout scam until it was too late.

    Am I safe in that the only thing my personal info would be used is for email spam and spam calls? I am really worried if they could use the details for anything else and don't know what to do!

    Thank you!

    Someone sent the link to me in a messenger group. I clicked on it out of curiosity. I answered the multiple choice questions but looked at the URL and went no further. I clicked off it and removed myself from the group. This was done via my iPhone. Are my personal details safe from these cyber criminals? Thanks.

      Once you didn't send your personal information, you are ok. If you did, the scammers will contact you and attempt to scam you using the information that you have sent, therefore, just be careful next time.
