Ebay survey scam? In an unguarded moment I clicked on a survey supposedly from ebay...looked genuine.Now realise it probably wasn't,appeared on advert space r/h side of screen,as I was browsing ebay. As soon as I ticked first box of survey they closed survey. Then a message from avg, 'Your firewall is turned off' I turned it on,and as far as I can tell,no harm done...but is there? Any one else experienced this?

Changed passwords...normally Very wary of ads...just caught off guard this time,,,and it did look genuine! As for adblocker,will research..maleware,will AVG not do that? Paid for,not the free version. Some days now passed,and all seems well...Hope so! Be interested to know if anyone else has had the same experience.

Thanks for the link, I didn't get as far as completing the 'survey' They stopped it as soon as I answered the first question.So no offer made. Just concerned that my firewall was turned off at that precise moment.presumably by the 'survey' ....Do have some sympathy with those who think ebay should take some action though. Advert was a blatent copy of ebay logo etc. Also,do ebay make money from the advert ? If so can they not trace them?
