About this infection

“Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam is a false warning claiming that your system has a damaging software or that there is a severe problem. These tech-support scams are just aiming to scam you, nothing they say is true, unless the issue is completely unconnected. If an adware is indeed to blame, expect pretty invasive adverts. An advertising-supported program generally comes along with freeware, and if you don’t uncheck it, it will install together with the application. In case you are worried, the advertisements are quite harmless by themselves, and if you don’t dial the number, no damage will be done. The reason calling them isn’t a wise idea is because you would be fooled out of a lot of money, or they would install some kind of malware. Allowing some suspicious technicians to have remote access to your OS could turn out to be a very bad idea, so you should be cautious. And when it comes to this warning, don’t pay any attention to it, it is not real. In order to make the adverts no longer pop up, all you need to do is delete  “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam.

What does it do

Since adware installation seldom happens knowingly, it’s commonly spread via freeware. If the application has something added to it, you should uncheck it, and it can’t be done in Default mode. We recommend picking Advanced or Custom mode because otherwise, the adjoined offers will not become visible. If Advanced settings disclose something, ensure everything is unchecked. And if you think they could be of use, take into account that they did not intend to properly disclose their installation, and you would have installed them by accident. If you want to avoid having to uninstall “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam and similar constantly, pay attention to what you install onto your OS, and how you do it.

Whatever alert you are seeing on your screen, we can assure that it is trying to make you think that your operating system has came across a problem and requires urgent attention. It could be cautioning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, con artists will come up with all kinds of schemes. It’s also not uncommon for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks as this scares users into reacting. A phone number would be flashing somewhere, the warning requesting you to dial it, and if you did, you would be dealing with skilled scammers. Take into consideration that no real software or security company will ever ask users to call them. So if you get an advertisement from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you are being fooled. Scammers on the other side of the line would say that the problem needs to be dealt with immediately but that would cost you a lot of money. Tech-support scams are not a threat to regular computer users because they aren’t very convincing but less computer experienced users may fall for them because they haven’t ran into one before. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable users may fall for them, as even if they don’t fall for the first attempt, after they start popping up over and over again, they might think that it is a trustworthy alert. If our reassurances about the majority of those pop-ups being scams are not sufficient, you could easily find out by using a search engine to look into it. We can guarantee that the first couple of results will be of people complaining about being tricked. So don’t be scared of closing the warning and entirely overlooking it while you deal with the problem. If the warnings are frequent, you will need to remove “Amazon.com Membership Rewards” scam adware to make them stop.
