Youtube Reward Center Scam

What is Youtube Reward Center Scam?

If you see a pop-up from Youtube Reward Center on your screen, you must have encountered Youtube Reward Center Scam. It is one of many scams that can reach users. Its content might slightly differ depending on the time you access the domain showing it or the web browser you use, but there is no doubt that it will try to convince you to provide certain personal details no matter which of its versions you encounter. Do not do this and close it immediately because Youtube Reward Center Scam is a hoax. It might seem that it is displayed by YouTube, but we can assure you that it has nothing in common with it. Generally speaking, users who encounter Youtube Reward Center Scam see the fake message. Because of this, they should not expect to get an expensive item (e.g. iPhone X) just for taking a short survey. It only seeks to extract some personal details from you, but you should not provide any information about yourself. Instead, close this convincing message right away. Unfortunately, it might not be that easy to get rid of it.

What does Youtube Reward Center Scam do?

The main goal of Youtube Reward Center Scam is to convince users to provide certain personal details. This is also the reason the message users see claims that they can get a free iPhone X or another expensive item by simply providing “your details for verification”. Ignore the advertisement you see completely and make sure it does not appear on your screen again. You might even need to find and delete untrustworthy software from your computer to make it gone. Unfortunately, some users fall for the trick. They see that they have only 2 minutes to provide personal information necessary to claim the prize, so they do not think much and go to do that right away. It is a very bad idea to provide name, surname, telephone number, and email because all of them might be used for malicious purposes. For example, you might start getting various spam emails. In addition, you might agree to pay for some kind of service every month by submitting all those details about yourself. Last but not least, they might be sold to cyber criminals that are going to use the provided information for fraudulent purposes.

Where does Youtube Reward Center Scam come from?

There are three possible reasons why you see the fake pop-up that looks like an official YouTube promotion. First, you have opened a domain with it yourself. Second, you have been redirected to the domain with Youtube Reward Center Scam against your will from some kind of dubious website. Third, untrustworthy software installed on your computer is the one responsible for the appearance of the scam on your screen. Most probably, it is an advertising-supported application (adware), specialists say. It might be any adware program, so it might not be a piece of cake to find and delete it from your system. It is very likely that you installed it on your system next to software downloaded from the Internet. There are many suspicious applications that are spread as additional offers so always read terms of use before installing new software on your computer and do not skip software installation steps too quickly. We cannot promise that this will be enough to prevent all untrustworthy applications from entering the system, so it would be best to have a security application always enabled on the system too.

How to remove Youtube Reward Center Scam

Close your browser immediately if Youtube Reward Center Scam appears. Some users might not see the fake pop-up ever again after doing that; however, if it is reopened to you after some time, the chances are high that you will need to erase untrustworthy software from your computer. As mentioned previously, it should be an adware program. Some ad-supported programs can be erased through Control Panel so check all programs listed there and delete those suspicious ones. Then, reset the web browser you use to default. If it happens that this does not help either, performing a system scan with a powerful antimalware scanner would be a smart move.
