Sky customer survey links?

On both my iPad and iPhone when browsing I keep being redirected to a page supposedly a Sky customer survey?

It offers a voucher or something ? It may be the router Iím using but only seems to effect rib net?

Anyone got any ideas?

I get similar on my iPhone and only ever when on Ribnet… mine tells me I'm a winner in a BT customer survey draw.

It a spam/scam that works out you isp from your IP address then claims to offer a free prize or survey gift........ but is this something which is authorised by the site admin?

My advice is DO NOT click on any link that you do not know or understand. If you do, then you may introduce a virus to your mobile or laptop.

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book - called 'phishing'.

Repeat - my advice is DO NOT click on the link. If you have already done so, then you should run a full anti-virus check as soon as possible.

It’s not an ad or link I click on, I am taken to the survey page while browsing Ribnet. It then can’t be moved on from or closed without closing the phone browser.

If you normally get ads then it could be malicious code in a random ad that you are served - you wouldn't have to click it as it might be running a script. Are you using Tapatalk or the mobile version of the site?
