Hey people. Just a friendly head's up. I was over on the Telus web site and it asked me if I wanted to do a survey when I was done. Meh... why not. Typical Telus satisfaction survey.
Then a bit later I was on a slightly sketchy web site and downloaded an MP3 ring tone. Next thing I see another Telus survey pop up. Needy much Telus? What's with you today? But the site looked very legit - just like the last survey I took. Maybe I forgot to close a window or something? But this time I got a free Note 10. Mmm... Ok... I could use a Note 10. One question in I happened to notice the survey URL was BellRewardsMe
Wait a second... Bell and Telus don't team up to survey me about Telus. And nobody is handing out free Note 10's - Telus is super cheap! This smells like a SCAM! So I quickly closed the browser window then just to be safe I tossed the laptop out the window (just kidding).
A bit of googling later I found the fake Telus survey a fairly well known scam where they get you to "only pay for shipping" which usually runs you about $180 - $350. And of course you get nothing.
So watch out for fake Telus surveys. And probably don't do the real ones either just to be safe.
Nope. No time. I was too busy drilling a hole in my hard drive to stop the virus from infecting my network. 🙂
But next time I'll be sure to do that. Thanks for the info. I didn't know Telus had an email for reporting abuse like that.
