[SCAM!] Congratulations! You won iPhone 11 Pro Max! Only $1!

Recently I got this pop-up that appeared in many forms. One such example was in a Chrome browser survey.

Just for fun, I attempted it :grin:. It then told me that I could win an iPhone 11 Pro Max for only $1 but it needed credit card info. Do not give it. How do you know they will only charge $1? To me I was wondering “$1 isn’t that much of a difference, why can’t you give it free?” It happened that I was considering to buy iPhone 11 Pro (Max) way before that :sweat_smile:.
Then, after a few weeks, a similar pop-up came up and since I had the time I filled up the survey again. It told me that I could win a Galaxy S10+ for only $1 (that was before the Note 10 was released).
I traced the website to one where I was looking for OS X Mountain Lion’s ISO file for my VM, and I found that a certain website I clicked always redirected me to a pop-up.
