Private message asking if I wanted to Win, Is This Legit?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I got a PM asking me if I wanted to win a new phone by completing a sign up.

I am just wanting to know if any MOD can confirm this is legit?

thanks to anyone who can address it.

thank you for the reply @frkhrd . 

If this is scam bait then there is a registered forum that should be contacted by a MOD as I am sure Roku does not want this happening on the forum.

@RokuDanny-R tagged you to read this thread and if you need, I can shine more light to the member sending out this possible <un-authorized advertising> I will call it for now....although @frkhrd has reason to believe it is possible malware so everyone be real careful about Private Messages asking to click or sighn up to something to win a phone ...

I also received this prompting me to come to the community page.

I received this phishing/spam message as well.  @RokuDanny-R I see the sender's profile (RainbowDreamss member since 11/30/2020) in the community still, so perhaps more than one profile was created.
