WARNING: INTERNET POP-UP SURVEY COULD BE A DANGEROUS SCAM

red-flag[4] The first red flag for any advertisement or solicitation is the lack of a clear company name on the pop-up.

The second red flag is a well-known logo or product name without reference to the vendor’s true name.

While browsing the Internet, I was presented with a page that appears to be designed like the type of survey that would come from Microsoft …

scam

It looks like an Internet Explorer product given the explorer logo, color and design.

It also looks like a Chrome product!

When I switched browsers, the scam site detected the switch and changed its logo and language  to Google’s Chrome browser. Given the trivial nature of determining what browser you are using, this is not even a hack.

Who is really behind this attempt to trick you into responding?

It appears that the people behind this highly deceptive practice is an advertising company in Amsterdam with servers in the Bahamas.

Bottom line …

Before responding to any request for information, anonymous or otherwise, check the IP address in the address bar and never assume that a dangerous attack on your identity would not look like a phishing attempt from a well-known organization. Best practices include ignoring all pop-ups.
