    What's the real threat from that link?
    And if it was sent from a number on What'sApp group, is the owner aware that this message is sent?
    And, does it mean that this number is at risk (or the phone device itself)?

    This is the message
    "Adidas is giving 2500 Free pair of shoes to celebrate it's 69 anniversary, get your free shoes at @ http://www.adıdas.de/shoes"
    And it's clear it's not adidas,

      The link goes to a fraudulent website that asks visitors for personal and financial information, and if submitted, goes to online scammers who will use it fraudulently.

    I shared the link but did not give any of my personal details to the questionairre. The questions asked were about whether I liked the Adidas brand. Should I be worried?

      No, once you didn't send any personal, online account or financial information, you should be OK.
