This app tells people that if they watch enough adds they will get a few $50 gift card to PlayStation Network. It requires access to card information on your Google account, and an email, it signs people up for subscription to random expensive and ridiculous things.
Like a joke per week email that costs $15 per month. Once you have watched all the adds, it never sends a gift card. It sells your email though. One of the ways for people to earn “coins” (the app currency, usually earned by watching adds) is to give the app a 5 star review, so there are so many good reviews that there is no way to know it’s a scam from looking at the app page. It has a 90% 5 start rate, because everyone is trying to get coins.
But if you look at all the reviews, no one had actually got a card. Everyone says, “easy to use.” Many of them say they are rating it just to get coins, but not one person had talked about getting a card, because they don’t actually ever send you one. It’s a brilliant system really, people get scammed into giving a good review so more people can get scammed.
But the worst part is that you have the option to buy a timer boost yo get more coins faster, so you can get your gift card faster. The card that isn’t coming. People pay 10 dollars for the timer boost, and never get anything out of it but adds. It’s disgusting
