Beware of "Google FREE Apple iPhone X Visitor Browser Opinion Survey" Scam

If you are asked to complete the survey below "Google FREE Apple iPhone X Visitor Browser Opinion" 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 rewards which are actual advertisements. The fake Chrome Opinion Survey is not associated with Google and the website that displays the survey will receive compensation for the products or services that they have tricked online users into purchasing.

Please continue below.

The main purpose of the fake Google survey being sent by online scammers 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.

    Recently I got a message from Google that thanks for being a loyal Huawei we are giving you free iPhone x for free of cost only we will take 1$ for shipping and we need your credit card information and some personal information and also answer us some questions like who is the founder of Google.

    When Google was founded and where is its headquarters and I answered them and provided some personal information
    They have said your answer is correct we are giving you iPhoneX but answered one of the question wrong they counted it correct from there. I got the hint that this is fake.

    Please tell me am I right about it and now what to do about personal information

    • Posted: Yesterday at 3:14 PM by info

      The message is not from Google. The message is being sent by cybercriminals.

      If you have already given them your personal information, just be careful going forward, because you cannot undo sending it to the scammers.

    • Posted: Yesterday at 2:48 PM by info

      Not necessarily. The scammers may change their merchant name and may attempt to charge your card again under the new name, which may bypass the block created by your bank. I would recommend getting a new card and canceling the current one. But, talk to your bank about this first.

    I have lost 20 rs this morning from my bank a/c via debit card. They said you won Iphone x & now only you have to pay $1.

    There's also a order number displayed which I receive at my home. I have screen shots also.

    After processing of my transaction, suddenly the website has changed to the name megabook & payment has been deducted from megabook website not from google iphonex.

    This is really cheap activities which should not be done & all types of these scam on internet should be strictly prohibited.

    Its a cyber crime & we must raise our voice against it. It's not a matter of my 20rs. It's a matter of our money, the all people's money by which these types of scammers make 20 rs to 20 crore.

      They first ask for personal information, once they have received it, they will ask for money or credit card information next.

      If you gave them your credit card information, contact your bank before they start charging your card. They will randomly charge your card without your consent.

      If you did not give them your credit card, just be careful going forward, since they have your contact information, they will continuously contact you and will attempt to scam you.

    hello, good day, I just received a payment notification from my credit card as I bought in this site ebooki.cc, site where I have never registered ... of course they are thieves, because if not I have registered and at the moment I see a purchase that I have not made at full 6:30 in the morning, it is that they steal information from somewhere else ...

    I remember the site as in a page of sale and promotion of iPhones, buying there sends you to ebooki.cc, in my case, being there, I just closed the page because I was not interested, but it seems that it was enough for them to access my data and steal me something over fifty dollars ... here I leave , for something, the link from where this site of thieves appeared ...

    Which social media is related to Google,etc, and I was congratulated, and they demanded for my details, including, name, email, postal code, city, I gave them, the next thing they asked was my card no, the already put my name as the cardholder, expiry date of the card, last 4 digit, I didn't give them this, I paused to google if it's a scam, and that's how I got to this page, where am commenting right now.

    I just got the same message as I was downloading something, a new tab opened and it said all of the above mentioned. At first I was like this is too good to be true but then I was like it’s from GOOGLE PAKISTAN So I did the stupid thing and did the survey which asked 3 questions which were ‘Are you sarisfied with Google?’ And ‘Do you recommend Google?’ And ‘What is your favourite Quality(something like that) of Google’ and I answered the questions as ‘Yes’ , ‘Yes’ , and ‘Service’ for the last one then another link loaded on the same page which was in Spanis(and I had to literally google what it was saying) and I so stupidly entered details like full Name, email Address, Postal Code, MY HOME ADDRESS,and my city.

    After which I submitted it, I came across another form which required Bank details and that’s when I started to doubt if This be really is real. And spend 2 and a half hours searching ways to contact GOOGLE and see if this is true and then I suddenly wondered if they actually give gifts or prizes to users? And hence, I’m here.

    I feel so ridiculous for even believing all that crap (when I was never one to believe such things) but what I’m really worried about is Am I really Safe?!? After all I gave them my details such as My home address,email address,etc. Please Help. I’m really worried here. What should I do?

          Your bank may have blocked the transaction from a certain merchant, but the scammers can change the merchant's name and try to charge your card again. Therefore, contact your bank for help or check your credit card statements for fraudulent transactions and report them to your bank.

      Yes, but the scammers have your credit card information and can change their merchant name to get around the block. So, check your credit card statements carefully and report fraudulent transactions to your bank. Your bank may cancel that credit card and give you a new one.

    Theft of data through false web pages.
    This type of scams is one of the most used by Philippe Ballesio and his criminal organization. It consists in cloning web pages of banking entities and, like many people when they want to consult their account statement, they do not usually write the link of the bank's website in the Internet bar, but they use a search engine. This action means that, from the search engines, you can probably access a cloned page created by Philippe Ballesio. By entering the username and password of these sites, it is certain that the data of the "clients" will be stolen, which will allow the band of criminals led by Philippe Ballesio to enter the real account to make transactions and steal the balance banking.

Also, I was a bit confident because the web address was starting with https:// which gave me a feeling that this is a secure website.

    But to my full satisfaction, I used google chrome to google this promotion & I landed at this page which gives me the confidence that the promotion scheme website is false & it can lead to a fraud, so I immediately closed the website.

    I also received a trigger of the same type when I went into to Google Chrome to search for some details...I got a popup message saying I am the chosen one and I must click on the survey and rate how satisfied I was with Google...I clicked on very satisfied.
    I was also told that I would receive a free iPhone and it asked for my card details and within the next one week Rs.3000 was deducted from my account. I had to get my card blocked...however I lost my money.

    I got the same message. I answered the online questions but I didn't give any personal information. Will that scam harm me anymore.
