Amazon Rewards Event Scam

If you have been exposed to the Amazon Rewards Event Scam, you need to investigate what is going on. Maybe a malicious infection has silently slithered into your operating system, and now it is exposing you to scams by redirecting you to malicious pages without your permission. It often is hard to determine whether or not malware exists because most malicious infections are silent, and they can stay hidden so as to evade removal. Luckily, you can choose from a variety of legitimate malware scanners to learn if your operating system is infected by malicious infections. If that is the case, of course, you must erase them immediately because the longer you wait, the more virtual security issues you are likely to face. If you continue reading this report, you will learn how to delete Amazon Rewards Event Scam-related malware if it exists, as well as how to protect yourself against scams in the future. Please take note of any questions that you might think of, and then add them to the comments section.

According to our research, the suspicious Amazon Rewards Event Scam was recently controlled via the hxxp://playing.youphone.club/raffle/en/azwc-c-opt/ page. At the moment, it is not active, and it is likely that it has been taken down permanently. Of course, if we have learned anything from analyzing hundreds of scams it is that schemers can set up new pages to represent the same scams. Therefore, although the page we are aware of is no longer active, that does not mean that the scam itself is dead. A few other scams that have been reviewed by our malware analysts include Wannacry Detected Scam, Critical Security Warning! Scam, and Pegasus Spyware Activated Fake Alert. In most cases, they are operated via pages to which victims are redirected to randomly when they interact with corrupted links or advertisements. Even if that is the case, inspecting the system with a legitimate malware scanner is important because you want to be 100% sure that malicious threats do not exist before you figure out your next step. In this situation, if you do not need to worry about the removal of Amazon Rewards Event Scam-related malware, you might have to worry about the protection of your personal data.

The Amazon Rewards Event Scam page that we knew of was built in a very smart way. At the top, you could find an Amazon logo, which would trick less experienced users into thinking that the offer presented to them was the real deal. When testing the scam, our research team was offered a $1000 Amazon Gift Card, and that is not something Amazon users would ever pass up on. The Amazon Rewards Event Scam instructed to click the “CONTINUE” button and then enter “correct information.” This information is likely to include your full name, email address, telephone number, and other sensitive information. Unfortunately, the gist of the scam is to make you disclose your personal details, and, of course, once you do, no real rewards are offered. You cannot pay any attention to the allegedly legitimate “comments” that are shown below the reward message because they are fictitious. In case you have revealed personal information already, you need to figure out what data you disclosed and how schemers could use it. For example, if you revealed your full name and email address, you need to be cautious about personalized spam emails.

If you want to remove Amazon Rewards Event Scam page from your screen, you should be able to do it by closing the tab or the browser altogether. If the scam page remerges after you restart your browser, it is very likely that malware exists. If the malware scanner of your choice discovers malicious threats, delete them immediately (we recommend using anti-malware software), and then restart the browser and clear browsing data. We suggest doing this even if the misleading Amazon Rewards Event Scam disappears after you close the page representing it. When it comes to facing scams in the future, it is imperative that you employ the right security software to assist you. You also need to be vigilant about too-good-to-be-true offers and misleading rewards. Remember that nothing that is allegedly free is ever truly free.
