Watch out for more scammy surveys

What's New

Alert WTC customers have let us know that the scammy survey and prize pop-up windows are again appearing with increased regularity.

If you've never seen this scam, it most commonly happens when you're about to leave a website. At that time a pop-up window will appear, with the legitimate-looking headline, "Dear WTC Communications User!" or some variant therof.
