The website has a survey in the end. As you see, the website has no advertisements whatsoever to keep it going. Once you end it, it'll probably ask you for your password or something.

I'll pass, it involves social media, the thing I don't have.

Hmm... thanks for the heads-up.

Yep, searched a bit and it's actually a scam. A real-life scam. Like always, when something is too good to be true it probably is.


1) Is to drive traffic, you do all this work for them and get all your friends to join in as well
2) Is to perform survey scams on as many of them as possible, looping if possible.
3) Is to leech off their social networks in which they shared upon.
4) Is to hijack or snoop the steam account.

They could give you a fake error, a loop to attempt to get that code over and over, a fake code, a already used code, illegally purchased code, or simply revoke the code at a later date on you. Normally they would say something like 'Authorisation Error' and try get you to do a humanity check 'to ensure that your not a bot' on your steam account or something similar, when really just gathering your personal details.

After all the effort of getting the clicks - the person is more likely to do the survey.

After all the effort on doing the annoying survey - the person is more likely to repeat the cycle if said it simply failed or leak personal details/logins if asked to confirm the account.

I've scanned one not so long ago for my own amusement (not actually visited) and tracking back the owner to a Go-Daddy account created just 3 days ago:

The download.php webpage in leads you after the 20 click/invites, has the following:
MD5: ECF0EDDC5AB5C85F1F816B0923380B61
Threat: Mal/FBScam-A

Mal/FBScam-A is javascript malware which forces survey scams and then attempts to steal your social network logins, etc.
