Beware of "Amazon Satisfaction Survey" Scams

If you are asked to complete the survey below "Amazon Satisfaction Survey" 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 survey is not associated with Amazon and the website that displays the survey will receive compensation for the products or services that they have tricked online users into purchasing.

The main purpose of the fake Amazon 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.

    From St. Louis, MO. On Dec. 20th, I received an email allegedly from Amazon to take a "satisfaction survey".

    I would receive a free gift for doing so.

    I use Amazon, so I took the survey - to my great dismay.

    I was offered 4 "gifts" to choose from - none of which I wanted, but I finally selected a free watch.

    It turned out to be a man's watch.

    I had already let them know on the survey that I was over 65 and female.

    I attempted to reach Amazon, but was directed to a "technician" who told me my Amazon account was corrupted, as well as my entire computer.

    I was told my computer was about to crash.

    I needed to have Absolute Solutions get into my computer to correct all of the many errors that had been put there by "GuruAid", which I have used for 8 years now to my satisfaction.

    The "technician" said it was all GuruAid's fault; that they were using my account, my computer, etc.

    I needed at once to let them onto my computer to "fix" all of the errors.

    I let them on.

    They wanted me to go AT ONCE to send them a money order for slightly over $300.00.

    I told them I was going out and could not do this until the next day.

    They agreed and I left my house with them on my computer.

    What should I do next?

      It is a scam. Those people are cybercriminals who are attempting to steal your information and money.

      Shut down your computer and do not sent them your money.

      Then, have someone, a tech savvy family member, friend, or a legit computer technician scan your computer for spyware, which the cybercriminals may have installed on your computer.

      Spyware is software that is used to remotely gain access to your computer without your consent or knowledge.

      The cybercriminals behind the spyware can steal the information on your computer, monitor your activities on your computer, or even watch you via your webcam.

    AMAZON PRIME SCAM:

    Oct. 29 received an "Amazon Satisfaction Survey" with Millard Brown Associates, 47 Washington Ave. #308, Wheeling, WV 26003 US. Offer included several "gifts" for completing the survey.

    I choose a watch and then was charged $6.95 S&H (several days later did receive a non-working cheap watch unlike any shown). THEN, Midnight, November 11, 2018 credit card alert notified me for confirmation of a $98.00 charge. The charge was blocked and the credit card was terminated.

    Am now waiting for the contact requesting immediate payment. Comments and suggestions appreciated.

    I did participate in this survey. They sent a cheap watch (shipping of 6.99) for as it said, participating in the survey.

    The watch fell apart after one use. Then a week later they charged my account $99. I called them and they said they would cancel it, whatever "it" was but because they said I had it for more than 14 days, which there wasn't any trial since it was a survey they charged for the watch.

    I wonder what they were actually canceling when they said they would cancel it.

    I asked to talk to a supervisor and they said all were in meetings.

    They would not refund the money or allow me to return it back to them for a refund. This is not the first time that a survey was sent to me by email. Costco had one too.

    After an Amazon purchase I did the survey thinking it was from Amazon. I opted for a free moisturizer but gave my credit card details for the shipping cost which was $3.06 Euro.

    I ticked the box which opted out of repeats. One week later I was billed for 83.71 Euro. I will now contact my bank. I'm usually more careful than this!

    Just got this: from amazon.com9921.co Satisfaction Survey about AMAZON.

    "IT HAS SHORT SURVEY AND SHOWS OFFERS LIKE Apple iPhone X $500 Amazon card etc."

    all free except for shipping.

    Has lots of reviews that are great. I did not put in my credit card number address etc.

    I'm sure it's a scam! But how do they get my name and phone number and know that I've ordered something from Amazon in the last week? That freaks me out! It was on a text to me. Not email.

    I received this text message from (240)239-5722

    "Nita your brand support is amazing. We created something special for you hxxp://y72ha.pw/7 Hope you enjoy!"

    I always research for scams when I get this sort of thing.

    I got scammed by YLWSQRE * YELLOWSQUAREF. I thought it was a reward from amazon because I order a lot of them.

    I am very worried because I have given my credit card number for paid handling fees; so sad that soon I will dare to order online.

      Contact your bank for help. Dispute fraudulent charges with them. And, you may need to cancel the credit card that you have used and get a new.

    I received an email today and was thinking that Amazon was going to add a credit to my account.

    I was then asked for personal information when I completed a satisfaction survey.

    It offered me products, but wanted credit card information to cover shipping. I exited out, deleted the email, now believing a scam.

    I then received a text on my cell a couple hours later advising that I hadn't complete the form and giving me a link.

    The text came from 832-981-6671 and the link showed to a website hxxp://antaresclktrk.com. I googled that website and found no reference.
