There I was just signed into HubPages and cicked on my earnings to see what I had earned today.
All of a sudden a survey thing appears asking questions about how often I use Hp
I duly fill it in and choose a phone and then the penny drops it is not a HP survey but an ad from the consumer association.
I think I just clicked on an ad on my own account- what on earth do I do? Is this an HP ad?
Any thoughts much appreciated
I haven't had that pop up. But yesterday was wierd my earnings kept rising and dropping. So far that hasn't happened today and my earnings are way up (for me anyway).
Don't worry about it if it was an ad. We can all make the odd mistake and they know that.
What was daft was giving them your phone number! lol
Expect to get spammed to death now. Your phone number, especially your mobile, is worth up to £500 when it falls into the wrong hands. Hopefully it won't be sold on, but it could be.
My guess would be that it is malware as there shouldn't be any pop-ups on that page.
I would suggest running an antivirus program.
I assume you didn't enter and details about yourself like your emails or password?
pscheskinner is correct. There are no ad placements in My Account for these pop ups to spawn from, so it does sound like you might have a virus. Running an antivirus scan is a good start. Good luck!
it is from a consumer service group and refers to Hubpages directly- wow it is sophisiticated!
Thanks for all the replies
