Isnt's that a scam or something?

Not sure that Firefox is used to "surveys".

Many thanks.

Looks scammy. First, there is a peculiar address in the URL bar. Second, Mozilla doesn't give away electronic devices.

Thanks a lot! That's what I thought but I'm no geek.

As a matter of fact the scam is a pop-up (?) of sorts. It always comes with an e-mail featuring an address that's not mine, for example:

• arfab.paca@wanadoo.fr

Mine's:

• jerome.arfi@orange.fr

Orange.fr used to be wanadoo.fr

Thanks a lot.

Useful.

In French it's called: "Signaler un site trompeur."

I fell for it as I trusted "Firefox" and gave them my credit card details, email address. Should I change my card?

Call your credit card company for advice.

Thanks--I called them and they'll send a new credit card. BTW, the scam was to connect me to a porn site, so I knew something was wrong after I got the email from them. I reported the abuse to Mozilla.
