Google Survey Scam

If you keep seeing pop-ups claiming that you can get an expensive item for free, there is no doubt that you have encountered Google Survey Scam. If you cannot get rid of those annoying pop-up messages, e.g. they show up on your screen again out of the blue, or you are taken to http://yourlink.online/iphone-en2/?device=generic%20web%20browser%20Desktop&isp=%20usa%20ab&aref=http%3A%2F%2Frnpol.adsb4trk.com%2Fsite%2Fredirectpage%3Fsid%3D69143%26hv%3Dszmoq5a7c46df4dd77310606966%26hid%3D325556#b and then get redirected to https://organizejobs.net/r/iphonex18/?transaction_id=6-82-d0322932-063d-49cc-9604-cc0c4f6bc86a&sub_id=41549&c3=pub&c2=kimia&c1=kUS25FT309H5K010034M18NC803K4GWF0TPC0QMc8fJV00GU017H800 automatically when you surf the Internet, it must be true that you have malware closely related to this scam installed on your computer. It must be an advertising-supported application (adware). The content of these pop-ups might change depending on the user’s location, browser type, and Internet Service Provider; however, we can assure you that you will not get any item for free no matter what kind of message you are presented with, so do not even bother taking surveys or providing personal information about yourself. Instead, find out why you have encountered Google Survey Scam and make sure it no longer bothers you. In some cases, closing the web browser works wonders, but, in most cases, users have to find and delete an untrustworthy application that is installed on their computers. If you have nothing to do with its installation, it does not mean that it is not there. Check Control Panel – some untrustworthy applications have uninstallers and can be deleted quite easily. Then, you should reset your browsers to default settings because you could have encountered Google Survey Scam because your browser’s settings were changed without your knowledge.

We can assure you that nobody is going to give you iPhone X or another expensive item. It is more likely that Google Survey Scam is used to extract personal information from users. For example, to “get an iPhone X for $1, users need to provide their names, surnames, addresses, postal codes, emails, and places of residence. Another pop-up might ask you to take a short survey and then, at the end, enter personal details to claim a prize. Do not provide any personal information because privacy-related problems might arise in no time. In the worst-case scenario, all these details you provide will end up in cyber criminals’ hands and might be later used for various malicious purposes. Extracted data might also be sold on the black market. As mentioned, you will not get anything in exchange, so close the pop-up opened to you and make sure it does not appear to you ever again.

Even though some users encounter Google Survey Scam because they open dubious domains by mistake or get redirected to them from other websites, the majority of people see pop-ups claiming that they can get an expensive item for free because there is some kind of untrustworthy application installed on their computers. According to specialists working at pcthreat.com, the chances are high that this program in an ad-supported application. Some adware programs have official websites and can be downloaded from them. Some of them can also be downloaded from P2P websites. Of course, not all users download adware themselves. There are many people who do not know anything about the installation of adware because it enters their PCs without their knowledge. In most cases, they are spread bundled. Since they hide behind other applications, users install them together with those programs. Adware programs are quite prevalent and sneaky, so you should not leave your computer unprotected.

You will get rid of Google Survey Scam by closing your browser if you have landed on some kind of dubious domain containing this scam; however, you will need to put more effort into the Google Survey Scam removal if you have encountered it because there is an untrustworthy program installed on your computer. As mentioned in the previous paragraph of this report, it is very likely that this program is an adware program.
