|Comment / Review||You receive an email that looks like it’s from Kohl’s, and it tells you that you’ve been selected to participate in a survey for a chance to win a reward. The whole email is just an image with a link embedded in it. Click on the image/link, and you’ll be directed to this website: https://eloclimbr.com/d8742280166677f5def4cd626258bb30 <— this is where you’ll do the survey. Once you finish the survey, you’ll win the reward. If you click “Claim Now”, you’ll be redirected to this website: https://firstclassfeaturedproducts.com/a/Lecreuset/v1/?affId=2&subAff=&c1=bo0ei3f0p1t4&c2=&c3=&c4=&click_id=8764c37add8046ca9869044443d8d677 <— this is where you’ll be asked to provide your personal info to confirm the order - your name, home address, phone number, and email address. When you finish this step and click “Continue”, you’ll be redirected to a different page on the same website: https://firstclassfeaturedproducts.com/a/Lecreuset/v1/checkout.php?affId=2&subAff=&c1=bo0ei3f0p1t4&c2=&c3=&c4=&click_id=8764c37add8046ca9869044443d8d677&sId=&prospect_id=3206617 <— this is where you’ll be asked to provide your credit card details.|
Do *NOT* actually do any of this, please. I only went along with this (I did not provide my real info) so that I’d be able to properly explain how these emails turn into phishing scams. If you receive an email like this, ignore it or delete it - scammers like to send these emails to try to trick you into thinking you’ll win a free/discounted reward, hoping that you’ll be willing to follow all the steps and eventually provide your personal and credit card details to them. If you do give them your information, they’ll take your money (you have to pay for “shipping fees” when you order the reward) and use your personal/credit card info to make unauthorized purchases in your name - you’ll also never receive the reward you were promised.
