A few weeks ago a close friend of mine sent me a link similar to this one (current first google result when searching "saks $200 gift card"):
- hxxx://saks.rewardscards.co/code/qro8mtre]Get a Saks Fifth Avenue $200 Gift Card[/b Mod Edit: Disabled link - Hamluis.
To Celebrate Valentines Day Get a Saks Fifth Avenue $200 Gift Card Simply Invite 3 Friends to Get Your [b]Gift Card After 3 Friends Click Your Link.
My link ends .../code/4xdw6ho9/
I thought it was a scam, so I ignored it, but the friend told me she had actually sent the email, and against my better judgement I clicked the link. I can't remember if it had me enter any information or not.
I was on my Droid Turbo with Android OS 5.1 using Dolphin browser. My phone says it is up to date with System version 23.21.44.quark_verizon.verizon.en.US vzw. Build number SU4TL-44.
If you try to go to the link that my friend sent me, and if you try to go to the link above for that matter, the browser gives back "Page cannot be displayed". Ie the link appears to be broken.
I have noticed odd behavior on my phone browser (Dolphin), though. A new tab opens on my browser every once in a while with the above URL (with my 7 end characters, not the above-linked address). The tab shows page cannot be displayed. It happens in the background, and I only notice it when I start closing other tabs on Dolphin and I notice extra saks.rewardscards.co tabs that weren't there before.
I tried TrendMicro's internet security app scan which found nothing. I installed that app just for the scan and then uninstalled it. I have no other security apps on my phone. Please let me know if there is any more information I can provide that may help.
Thank you very much for your time.
