I had a message pop up on my phone that I could win $1000 gift card from Walmart - at first I thought it was tied to the app I was on and it was ligit. I answered three questions - then typed in email. Then next screen wanted my home address and phone number. that's when I got suspicious and searched on line - Did not type any more info - the only info was my email address so I will probably be bombarded with emails now. Glad I looked it up and found out it was a scam.

Been scammed by Andrew White
Feb 1, 2018
Monetary Loss: $0
Offered $1000 Amazon gift card.
Had to do survey that requires you to pick a deal before you can get the gift card. Asks for personal info. Never actually get gift card. Looks very legit but it's not. Now I can't get them cleared off my browser! Then says I need LifeLock to protect me! Screw you all!
I was browsing for mp3 songs when i was redirected to YouTube and i got a pop-up from YouTube Survey "you are one of the lucky ten to win a $1000 visa reward card or $1000 walmart card. Although it looked so real, i was very certain it's a scam. I was asked to answer five questions; How old I am. if I like the popup ads on YouTube. How frequently i go on Facebook. My Facebook details, etc. My answers towards all that was no, (I don't have a Facebook account). Next screen popped up for my email addy and name. I input an email addy cos I know how to cut them off. Next screen popped up with two cards, the number of cards left and option to choose. Although $1000 walmart card (3), visa card (0). Then I clicked on the Walmart. Another popup came up asking for my house address and details. I didn't even bother to put in my house address so I decided to check the website and look it up and found it's really a scam. Samples are attached.
