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.

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.
