Amazon Rewards Event Scam has been created by schemers to extract sensitive personal information. If they succeed, unfortunately, they could use this information to scam you further. Let’s say you are tricked into revealing your email address. Then, the schemers can sell your address or use it themselves to send you spam with potentially corrupted links and files. If you did not know this already, extremely dangerous file-encrypting ransomware is usually spread via corrupted spam emails, and so you really need to be cautious. Schemers could exploit the data you reveal in other ways too, and so if you have been tricked already, you need to be cautious about any additional scams you could be involved in in the future. While you cannot really do much about this, you can inspect your operating system for malware. If it exists, you must delete it immediately. In fact, there is a good chance that you need to remove Amazon Rewards Event Scam-related malware. Please continue reading to learn more.

How were you introduced to the Amazon Rewards Event Scam? Were you routed to the page representing it (http://playing.youphone.club/raffle/en/azwc-c-opt/) once you clicked an unfamiliar link or visited an unfamiliar website? If that is what happened, most likely, the link was corrupted, and you were routed to the scam page deliberately. Needless to say, if you want to avoid such activity, you need to be careful about the links and websites you interact with. In a scenario where malware is involved, you need to install a trustworthy malware scanner to help you inspect your operating system. We offer a free malware scanner, and you can acquire it via the Download link below. If any threats are found, you MUST delete them promptly, and, hopefully, the devious Amazon Rewards Event Scam will be disabled for good. If you ignore the scam but do not remove malware that is active on your operating system, you could be at risk of experiencing much bigger security breaches.

The misleading Amazon Rewards Event Scam is meant to push you into reclaiming alleged rewards. In reality, these rewards are bogus, and they are displayed only to trick you into disclosing information about yourself. The rewards page is very misleading, and you have multiple comments from alleged users stating that the rewards program is real. Of course, it is not. Amazon does not just give out products and gift cards for free, and if it did, it would not be using a random page to do it. Although the logo of Amazon is shown on the top-left corner, that does not make the whole scam legitimate. At the time of research, the http://playing.youphone.club/raffle/en/azwc-c-opt scam page was not working, and right before that, the “CONTINUE” button would lead to the “400 Bad Request” page. Obviously, this page has been taken down. Unfortunately, new ones could be created to expose you to the devious Amazon Rewards Event Scam. If you face it or any other similar scam (e.g., Critical Security Warning! Scam or Mozilla Firefox Critical Error Scam), you need to remove it immediately.

What happens if you reset your browser and then clear data? You get rid of cookies, cache, and other traces of unwanted services. If you delete Amazon Rewards Event Scam-related data and reset your browser, there is no doubt that you will not face it again. Unless, of course, malware exists. We have already discussed at length how you can discover malware, but what should you do when you find it? You can install an anti-malware program that will automatically remove Amazon Rewards Event Scam-related infections, or you can research and eliminate them manually. If you choose the latter option, check out the guides available on our site, and also comment below if you need our assistance. In either case – whether or not other threats exist and you must delete them – you have to reset your browser and clear browsing data. You can do that using the instructions below.
