IKEA Malaysia Whatspp Survery? Phishing Scam?

Recently, there is a purported IKEA survey and contest which promises FREE IKEA gift card worth RM5,000 spreading across social media, particularly Whatsapp messaging application.

It's just another phishing scam survey?
Yes. This was confirmed by IKEA Malaysia via their Facebook page, stating that they are not associated with such activities and advising public not to share their personal info via the link.

How was the message like?

  1. You will receive a Whatsapp message stating: "Look http://...... /ikea-giftcards" from your friends
  2. Once you clicked the link, you will be landing in a page like above.
  3. Answer a few very simple questions.
  4. Then, you will need to share this survey with 10 friends via Whatsapp and fill up your shipping details in order to get the gift card.

So, don't become the victim and spreading the fake survey. Instead, you should share this message to your friends. Thanks.
