Youtube Survey...Possible Scam macdad64 8/6/10 3:31 PM
I typed in www.youtube.com and it redirected me to some site that said YouTube survey or something where they were giving away some crap or something. I smell a scam. Fortunately I did not fill out the forum and AVG did not bring up any warnings abou the site. Have any of yall gotten this before? As if this is legitemately from YouTube then, why are they giving away cash/prizes for the survey? I got the properties of the page and got the URL:
Confirm this with me.
 
Thank you

If there's a form, it's probably a phishing scam.

Sorry, I actually typed in www.youtub.com without the "e" and thats how it brought me to the page. And the URL was actually punkinbear.com or something like that, but the properties of the page still showed theinternetsurvey.org. I'm just not going to take my chances especially since it's over the internet and during a recession like this.

But oddly enough, after I arrive there and close the tab, and try to reconnect with that site it brings me to another site.

LOL- yes- the link www (dot) youtub (dot) com does indeed lead to a scamming site with clearly NON-YouTube associations.  :)  Something about entering for gifts...  ;)

Walk away- it is no good.

The same thing happened to me 2 mins ago.  When i've type youtube.com ive been redirected on www(dot)internetsurvey (dot)org , here's the adress.
 
 
 
They say that we've to complete a survey to get a free gift but there's clearly no form to fill.  Also, the link is accessible more than once.  Finally the "comments zone is fake. It is a jpg picture, here's the link : http://theinternetsurvey.org/youtube/comments.jpg

Yea i got tricked by the site too and they started sending me tons of text messages on my phone for ringtones. I was worried because it said there may be $9.99 charges. 

The call back number for the text messages was 877-707-1775

I typed youtbe.com instead of youtube.com and it redirected me here...

You tube is in bed with these people, this is crazy, how can they do this, this is why you can't trust any corporation online or off.

I also accidentally typed youtub.com and got to the survey page....foolishly gave it my name, zip and email but bailed out before giving my cell #. Norton reported an attempted intrusion during the couple minutes I was on the page. Youtube has serious trademark grounds to end this, they are representing themselves as being affiliated and are clearly not.

The scam page must be triggered by mispelling Youtube. 
 
I mistyped www(dot) youtubr.com and found myself at the fake survey site complete with a "Thank You" scripted 'youtube' style on the top left of the page.

I should have suspected something, but I didn't.  All I gave them was my email, though, and I've been getting a buncha spam.  I wonder if I should remake my email?  Nah.

Crazy indeed. It is absurd to think that YouTube would derive any benefit from a phishing scam pretending to be affiliated with them.

Sam here. I was trying to go to YouTube and this site, "http://www.videosurveypanel.
com/?sov=12004" came up instead saying that if i do a small survey i will receive a prize.

After checking my history, i found out I typed in YouYube in stead of YouTube which redirected me to the scam site.

I accidentally typed yuotube.com, because of the way I type. if you have any close spellings of youtube it directs you to the SCAM! THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!!!! there is a new link each day. November 13                                http://www.videosurveypanel.com/?sov=24092
