How to remove “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam

About this infection

The most probable reason you are seeing “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam adverts is because of an adware infection. These scam advertisements will try to convince you to call Tech support so that scammers could sell you useless programs or get access to your machine remotely. Adware can make highly invasive adverts so expect the pop-ups to show up regularly. An advertising-supported application is often attached to freeware, and if it’s not unchecked, it will install alongside the application. In case you are worried, the pop-ups are rather harmless by themselves, and if you do not dial the number, no harm will be done. The reason calling them is not a good idea is because you would be fooled out of a lot of money, or some damaging software would be installed. Authorizing some questionable technicians remote access to your device might turn out badly, so be careful. And when it comes to this ad, just ignore it, you’re machine isn’t in danger, neither is your data. When you terminate “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam, the ads should disappear, and you will be able to go back to normal browsing.

Why are the alerts popping up

An advertising-supported software is usually found bundled with free applications. It is adjoined as an optional item which Default settings don’t show, and you can not uncheck it if you can’t see it, which will allow it to install. Instead of Default, you should use Advanced or Custom settings. The attached offers will be made visible, and if you do not want them, just deselect them. And while those items might not necessarily bring about danger, if they did not inform you about their installation properly, they should not be allowed to install. If you want to avoid having to terminate “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam and similar constantly, pay closer attention to how you install software.

All of these types of warnings are the same, they all want users to think that their OS is experiencing some kind of problems. You’re likely seeing a supposed malware, licensing or system problems, because scammers aren’t very creative when it comes to scenarios, and they are all basically identical. These kinds of alerts will also attempt to scare you by warning you about data breaches and stolen data because this puts pressure on less experienced people. In order to stop those data loss scenarios, the user is required to call scammers who are acting as tech-support. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, it is obviously a scam. If you did call the number, scammers would state that they must clean your computer, and that would cost you a lot of money. Tech-support scams are quite obvious but because less-computer knowledgeable people haven’t encountered them before, they could fall for them. It isn’t difficult to imagine why some people may fall for these scams because if they are popping up regularly, they might look somewhat legitimate. However, even if you fully believe the warning, you need to still look into it using a trustworthy search engine. The first few results will certainly confirm it’s a scam. So don’t pay any attention to the alerts while you deal with the issue. There’s nothing to worry about if you’ve came across it once, but if you frequently get them, you will have to eliminate “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam adware.
