Do you all run giveaways where once a Saturday 7 firefox users get to spin a wheel and win a prize?

Posted

Clicked on a random tab and it said something like "Congrats! Every Saturday, Firefox picks 7 lucky users to spin a wheel and get a chance to win a great prize! I won an iphone apparently... but thinking it's probably a scam of course. It did have comments from other "users" probably fake of course, saying "this works! Got my gift as promised" but still think it's a scam. Thanks!

No.

Mozilla (the company that makes the Firefox web browser) has never offered prizes to random people. Especially not expensive phones like iPhone X, Samsung S8 or S9 or a $1000 gift card from some place like Amazon.

They (the scammers) are trying to get your personal information like name, address, phone#, email and say credit card details for what might be a claim of $1 shipping to send you said item.
