Beware of "BOOTS Gift Card" Spam Emails

Beware of "BOOTS Gift Card" Spam Emails

If you are asked to complete the "BOOTS 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 BOOTS' 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 BOOTS' survey below, because they will not receive the free products or services they have been promised.

Please continue below.

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 received an email from "Boots" this morning. It claimed "Congratulations with your gift card, today only. 500 Euros Gift Card. Let us treat you."

    I'm so glad I checked online first. I was tempted to "Claim"
