A small number of people from the United Kingdom have been selected to answer some short questions in exchange for a brand new Galaxy S8.

Today, you are one of the 10 selected!

The Galaxy S8 Infinity screen redefines the design of smartphones. In dimensions similar to traditional smartphones, now enjoy a spectacular screen that covers the entire front of the device.

In a case of glass and metal, the result is simply dazzling.

The survey was created by online scammers to steal online users’ personal information, which they will sell to rogue online marketers and spammers, like the owners of the fraudulent website: hxxp://thelatesttechscreens.com/. Also, the survey will attempt to sell bogus products and services to potential victims on fake websites. The fake websites may also steal their victims’ credit card information, which will be used by scammers/cyber-criminals fraudulently.

In order to scam you, online scammers need your personal information. This is why they create fake surveys to trick their potential victims into disclosing their information. Once, they have their victims' personal information, they will contact them and attempt to scam them. They may also sell the information to other online scammers.
