"Sams Club Survey Reward or Invitation" Spam Emails

If you are asked to complete the "Sams Club Survey" below, please do not participate in it, because it is a trick to get online users to purchase products, services, complete questionnaires or surveys, by pretending to offer them free rewards which are actual advertisements. The fake survey or invitation is not associated with Sam's Club and the website that displays the survey will receive compensation for the products or services that they have tricked online users into purchasing. Therefore, online users are asked to delete emails that they have received asking them to take the same Sam's Club survey below, because they will not receive the free products or services they have been promised.

Sams Club Survey Reward or Invitation Spam Emails

The main purpose of the fake survey is to make online users think they will get a reward for taking it, but the rewards shown at the end of the survey are advertisements that the people who have created the survey will get paid for, once the online users purchase the products or services that are being advertised.

I got a recurring monthly subscription after I chose my free item with paying for shipping only.

Who did/do I contact to cancel this?

I also did the "Sam's Club" survey and selected the "free" flashlight for only a $5.95 shipping fee. When I printed the order confirmation and read what was on the second page which was that in 15 days they would charge my card $54.95 for the flashlight, I called the customer service number - was hung up on after giving my zip code - called back and got a different service rep and asked to cancel the order. At that time he offered me the flashlight for half price ($27) but told him that was a bit steep for a flashlight so he went to the trouble to cancel the order. As they say "Let the buyer beware!" I am going to carefully watch all my credit card charges to confirm they don't charge my card in the future since they have shown they are doing business legitimately using a bogus Sam's Club survey.

I bit on the earbuds as well. It was for a total less than $10, plus free CBD oil. I realized it after the fact and contacted my bank and USPS. The company sent shipping confirmation and all but when I opened the notification further, the tracking label number given had been canceled. Sam’s was never referenced again. It was a company called ESSENTIALPOWERBOOST.

The charge is still showing pending on my checking account. After the fact, I noticed satisfaction survey was misspelled. I hope I caught this soon enough to avoid any further complications from my experience. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT’S NOT TRUE! Don’t fall for it!

Same thing here! I contacted Sam’s and sent everything I had to them. Now today, I have another pending charge on my account. The bank and credit card company both notified.

OK so I bit on the earbuds. They were offered at six dollars and some odd cents and then of course it added a couple of other charges for a tether and the ear pod charger. So two weeks later I got a notice from my credit card that there was a $79.95 charge and they declined it because it was sketchy. The service is supposedly those for a subscription. A subscription to what I have no clue. Anyway I did just get a new credit card number.

I took the bait. But the transaction said that it was not completed. Yet there were two charges on my Credit card account. I only use one credit card when buying things online. There the charges were anyway. During the quarantine it takes a while to get in touch with your Credit Card company... it is worth the wait to rid your self of these crooks. I still have not seen the great product they claim to have sent. God save us from these evil people.

Yes, I answered the survery. I have answered a few of them but never found anything offered that I wanted until June 12th. I saw a flashlight that stated it retailed for $49.95 but it cost me $0.00, $4.95 shipping and handling. I thought I could use another flashlight and at $4.95 I would get me one. So I clicked on the Flashlight and GadgetsandFlashlights which also showed the flashlight for $0.00, $4.95 shipping and handling.

I clicked, gave them my address and credit card information an was charged $4.95. A few days later I received my flashlight. It checked out ok, no paper work with it. So I got me flashlight that is ok but not $49.95 ok but for $4.95 ok.

Then I was checking my credit card June 27 and gee I have been charged $49.95? After much looking I found a way to contact GadgetsandFlashlights. I was told that that was a 14 day trail and I had not returned the flashlight so they charged my credit card the $49.95.

I talked to someone from their return center and was told I needed to return the Flashlight in the original box and they would charge me a $5.00 restocking charge. Gee

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • Identitytheft.gov: If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at www.identitytheft.gov. This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
