Specs: Android
I've been sent several emails saying I've won an M&S voucher, when I go to the bottom of the email the address is sm beauty salon. I'm not sure if I did enter as I've recently completed some reviews for several different things. Please could anyone advise me thanks

Only the sun goes up for free.
It is a trick to lure you to their shop and then being presented with a "complete" package ... that will cost you...

Ignore it as otherwise you may find yourself constantly bombarded with more junk mail and who knows what...

It's one of many similar scams.

If you were even tempted to think that was genuine then it would be an idea to run some quick checks on your computer to ensure you've not picked up any malware in the past. Run these three freebies, which are well respected on these boards and often find what anti-virus programs miss. Run them in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwa...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If any of them find something please copy/paste the associated logs on here so we can have a quick peek at them..

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
