Be Careful Fake Messages related to Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale Roaming on WhatsApp

Few days are left for the festive season sale to start on e-commerce sites and buyers are also ready with their 'wishlist' for the biggest festival sales. Scammers also do not want to miss this opportunity. The popular messaging platform WhatsApp is replete with messages stating that Amazon is offering 'Spin and Win' as a part of the Great Indian Festival Sale 2019. This message is completely fake and it is sensible not to click on the link provided with it. The Great Indian Festival Sale starts from September 29 for all users and September 28 for Prime users.
Messages related to Amazon Spin and Win or any such offer being sent on WhatsApp are completely fake and the company has not made any such offer. A link is also given to the messages with spin and win offers, by clicking on you can become a victim of phishing. You may have to bear the loss of responding to such messages as data theft and you may become a victim of scam. Boom questioned Amazon about this and Amazon said that they had nothing to do with any such offer or message.

In its report, Boom has said that he received a similar fraud message on the helpline in which it was written that, "Thank you all for making Amazon the No.1 shopping website in India." On the occasion of becoming the biggest company of India and the Great Indian Festival Sale, Amazon is offering you Spin and Win, in which you will be given a free gift. Click on the blue link below and win thousands of gifts. ' It is also written, 'Note, this offer is valid till September 25, get your free gift soon.'
In such messages, a link is given, on which click the web page opens, whose address is www.free-gift/#. There is a spinning wheel on this page and comments of some users are also seen, which talk about the results obtained after this spin. The spin wheel rotates after touching and a price appears on the wheel. You can spin it multiple times, until someone wins the prize. After this, the site asks for your sensitive information like name, address and bank details, etc.  The user does not get anything in return because the purpose of this whole process is to steal data through scam.
