DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE CHRISTMAS AMZON GIFT CARD THING GOING AROUND

hayli-copter:

IT IS A SCAM, IT IS FAKE, IT IS NOT RUN BY AMAZON OR ITS AFFILIATED COMPANIES.

So, a lot of you are probably going to see this. It’s a website that looks like it’s owned by Amazon, with a very similar look to the page as well as a similar domain. It’s a nice looking website, and it has a security certificate attached to the name. 

The advertisements for it claim that you can either receive a $50 card for completing a survey, or  a $100 one for referring three people via social media

I personally tested this website out for legitimacy. I went through its surveys with fake information and a fake email/address and it sent me tons of spam. I also did a background check on the website, which turned up with results saying it is NOT SAFE and not run by Amazon or its affiliates.

.

DO NOT, AND I REPEAT, DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK.

It will steal your information that you provide for it and send you waves upon waves of spam e-mails, as well as make automatic posts for you on whichever social media account you’ve given it. (You can disable it and remove permissions from this company by going to your connected apps page in your settings)

There are dozens upon dozens of scam accounts being made to promote this website. However, this is because the sites hijack your social media accounts and send out automatic posts promoting this scam with Amazon branding and very fancy, professional graphics. These aren’t real people promoting it.

If you see someone reblogging this, please email amazon at 

stop-spoofing@amazon.com to help them take down this awful, illegitimate website!
