"You've won a free HDTV" scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I received a text message yesterday stating that I'd won a free Samsung 4K HDTV. There was a link to a website which stated that I just needed to complete a survey to win the TV, so I did, and upon completing the survey, I was told to give my credit card # to authorize a $1 fee to ship the TV. I foolishly did this without checking with the supposed sponsor of this prize (Cox Communications, my TV and Internet provider). I checked with Cox today, and they told me they're currently sponsoring no such promotion, so I called my bankcard provider (Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.) to report the fraud and cancel the card. Fortunately, no fraudulent purchases were listed on the card. I'm really embarrassed to have fallen for this scam.
