Here it is again, that same popup, which occurs when I want to answer a post. It says:
The page at www.rewardsdaily.net
says:Congratulations Avsforum Visitor!
You are the survey winner for: Sunday, December 9th, 2012 (or whatever today's date is)
Please complete the following Avsforum survey to claim your gift.
(With an OK box to check.)
Now that I look at it closely, it comes from www.rewardsdaily.net
, not from AVS Forum. However it has evidently copied the AVS Forum part of it from somewhere, and is using it.
Once you hit OK, the next box saysCongratulations!

Pretty simple questions, and then of course you "win". I will not be continuing this time, but they have AVS Forum all over this thing. And the extra "an" in there was in their script, as the second part was able to be copy/pasted, while the first part had to be typed out longhand. Bad grammar is one of the first signs of illiteracy.. And phishing...
It proceeds to offer deal after deal, with a SKIP box at the bottom, usually out of sight until and unless you scroll down to it, and a note saying you have to answer to proceed. You don't. You can always hit SKIP, tho for the first one I did not because I had not discovered that SKIP box yet, and did get something in my inbox later from Shop At Home.
I skipped all the others, and in the end they gave me a choice of 3 prizes, one of which was an ipad, another of which was a $500 Visa debit card. I never did the final click tho, as the things they were asking for were classic phishing questions. Again, I am not sure if they got enough already to be sending out info about me to those wringing their hands with glee at the thought of another mark to send spam to.
Not sure how to proceed from here...
