Hi friends, we alerted you about Sandisk Rs 19 fake offer a few days back and a similar message is now doing the rounds on social media especially Whatsapp. Although, it might be irritating for you to see such scam alert posts on dealnloot again and again but we want to keep posting about such stuff for 3-4 times so that most of people get to know how companies are wasting precious time of users and also collecting their personal data and free traffic.
We got a Message from our Users about Samsung J7 Mobile Phone at Just Rs 499 by Amazon because of their Golden Anniversary. We will get into details soon but to start with, we just want to inform you that it is 100% fake and meant to collect your personal info.
Request – You would have seen that we usually don’t ask users to share any of our deals but such kind of posts which are essential for creating awareness must be shared. So make sure, you don’t keep this useful info limited to yourself and share it with everyone you know.
What is the exact message ?
The exact wordings of the message that is being circulated consistently on social media is as follows –
Breaking News, Amazon selling Samsung J7 mobile phone at just Rs 499 because of Golden Anniversary. But it now Before Sale ends. Cash on Delivery also available. Visit just now http://amazon.mobile-flashsale.com/
Reasons that we call it fake/scam –
1 . Amazon will always sell products on their site with domain http://www.amazon.in not on some fake domain name like http://amazon.mobile-flashsale.com/ created 2-3 days before.
2. The message says that the offer is because of Amazon’s Golden Anniversary but there is no such thing. Golden Anniversary means 50th Anniversary whereas Amazon was launched in 1994 outside India and in 2013 in India.
3. Even if Amazon wants to giveaway then they will do it professionally on their own website through some contest like treasure hunt or sweepstakes.
4. A never heard before “Torento Seller” is Having 516,350 ratings
5. Above the “Buy Now” button, it shows – “If you order in next 1 hour and 34 minutes, you get guaranteed delivery by….”. Well this 1 hour and 34 minutes remains the same always unlike amazon where the clock keeps ticking. These guys can stop time also. Genius Minds !
6. After you click on “Buy Now” and “Proceed to Checkout” >> You will be asked to share the message with 8 friends or whatsapp groups and you will be surprised to know that you can just click on Share and then you will be taken to Whatsapp and you can then press back button without actually sharing in any group and it will be counted as 1 successful share.
7. After you share with 8 friends/groups, you will be asked to download a suspicious app which can harm your phone. After knowing all of this – Do you still want to do that ? Well – Your choice, at the end of day !
8. English Grammar – There are more grammatical mistakes than the amount of English in their sentences. Some like – “Visit just now”, “For book Samsung Galaxy J7″, “Download our Official App for buy now” and many more……… A top notch company like Amazon can never make so many mistakes.
Lessons to be learned ?
This message is not the only one which is tricking people to share their personal information and download harmful apps but there are several others too.
So boycott these things and yes if you ever receive such message from your friend, explain them about this. Awareness is essential. You can give them a link to this post so that they can understand themselves .
Why are they doing this ?
The answer is pretty simple – To get people’s personal data & to get traffic on their website and making them install apps through which they can earn per install and apps which can collect data like all your contacts and much more….
Now the decision is yours – Do you want to be scam-smart and ignore not only this campaign but also others like these or still participate and waste your time/
