I actually saw this advertisement before I saw this notice on WI.
I knew it couldn't be Webkinz affiliated, just because it says "coins." I knew that if it was something from GANZ, it would have said "kinzcash." So, since I knew it was a scam, I clicked on it just to see. It was a simple ten question survey, and at the end it said something to the effect of, "We're calculating your score. Enter your cell phone number below, and we will send your results to your phone."
I obviously exited out of the window then, because I knew for sure that it was a scam.

I just wanted to let you all know what it actually was, and that you can't get hurt by clicking on it, just don't enter your phone number at the end!

Thanks for warning us FIA. I definetly would have clicked on it - but now, I won't, since you warned us. I wonder who's going to tell Ganz about this through phone/computer. I know I can't call them because I'm not 18. But still. This is horrible. Why would people do this? There are little kids, 6 years of age the youngest on there!

What the??? Who does that??? That's so mean! I mean who tricks little kids?!? Thx WI for the warning. I would of probaly clicked on that if I saw that ad!

Also, someone needs to call Ganz about this or the POLICE since we paid real money on our acounts. So it's like he/she or they are trying to scam us out of our money.

Also, COINS? Um... wow VERY nice......

FYI. Anytime something pops up or even any website that is suspicious you don't want to X off of it. If you click on it even to X off (close it) you are down loading a trojan and/or malware. You need to hit Alt and the F4 key (located at the top of your computer, it is a function key). This will close out the webpage without having to click on anything. Because trojans and malware place their stuff in the X (close button) so as soon as you click on it to close it you have given 'permission' for the trojan/malware to download itself into your computer without realizing it.
