Good day I received a survey by your name as firefox 2020 annual survay where the prize I received a survey under your name Firefox and the prize is an iPhone XR. I dealt with the questionnaire with confidence, and I obligated the four questions to guarantee your website and distinctive emblem. Unfortunately I missed a screenshot of the survey page but I will attach you a link page image. Moreover, they ask for master card&Pin number. I would like to know whether you are responsible for this survey or if a hacker is using your name.

best regards Omelkhair Elbarouni

Mozilla (the makers of the Firefox web browsers) has no involvement with this Obvious scam. Mozilla is aware but only so much can be done wihen the domains may be disposable as was the case with the fake Firefox updates sites.

Variations of this scam that you have won a expensive Samsung or iPhone or a $1000 Amazon gift card has been posted about on forum for a few or so years now. It comes by way of a malvertising Ad and they hope to trick people into giving out personal details like name, address, phone#, email and credit card to pay the so called $1 shipping.

Do not give them any personal information or send them any money by any means. Variations of this sort of scam has existed for a long time, not with mention of Firefox on it but in general. Nobody is going to send you a item that is worth say $1000 for only one or two dollars shipping cost.

Mozilla has done surveys over the years by way of http://qsurvey.mozilla.com which is surveygizmo.com however no prizes are given.

The only gifts I have seen from Mozilla were simple things like T-shirts and such given to say extension authors or such and never for something like expensive phones.

Oh and If Mozilla (the company that makes Firefox) was legitimately giving out such prizes to random people it would likely be on a *.mozilla.org page and not some random weird url site.

No, it's not our survey.

The survey is fake. Mozilla does not give away phones. If you provided them with your personal details, please be on the lookout for suspicious activities.
