What is happy.luckyparkclub[.]com?

Happy.luckyparkclub[.]com is a deceptive website that, if visited, offers its visitors to participate in various lotteries and win various prizes. In order to get a chance to win something it is required to fill in some survey first. Typically, people do not visit websites like happy.luckyparkclub[.]com intentionally. They get redirected to them through some clicked untrustworthy ads or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that are installed on their browsers and/or computers. As a rule, people download and install such apps unintentionally. When installed, PUAs feed their users with ads, cause redirects to shady pages like happy.luckyparkclub[.]com and gather various information. We strongly recommend not to fill in any surveys that are promoted through the happy.luckyparkclub[.]com or any other similar website, they might be used to extract various details that could be misused to generate revenue.

happy.luckyparkclub[.]com scam

Happy.luckyparkclub[.]com offers its visitors to participate in different lotteries. All of them ask to fill in a survey/answer to various questions. Once a survey is completed, people supposed to be able to get a chance to win prizes such as $1000 Visa or Walmart gift card, Netflix membership, Apple iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy S10. It is worth mentioning that neither Walmart, Visa or Netflix companies has anything to do with these lotteries (or surveys) provided by happy.luckyparkclub[.]com. Happy.luckyparkclub[.]com is simply a website that is used to gather various details about its visitors by tricking them into answering to various questions. It is very likely that visitors might be asked to provide information such as their email address, name, surname, telephone number, etc. Also, surveys opened through happy.luckyparkclub[.]com could be used to trick people into providing sensitive information too. In this article we provide three examples of lotteries/surveys, however, it is known that happy.luckyparkclub[.]com leads to more than just three of them. Either way, none of those surveys can be trusted.

Apps that open pages like happy.luckyparkclub[.]com are usually designed to serve users with other unwanted content like pop-up ads, banners, coupons, etc. Typically, people who click those ads get redirected to other untrustworthy websites, sometimes those ads run scripts that download or even install unwanted software too. Furthermore, installed PUAs are often used to record various data, for example, user's IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, geolocations, and so on. Their developers usually share those details with third parties who might be cyber criminals and misuse them to generate revenue. Besides, some PUAs are designed to collect not just browsing-related information but personal, sensitive details as well.

Happy.luckyparkclub[.]com is virtually identical to happy.goodluckspace[.]com. However, these pages are not the only deceptive sites that are used to trick people into filling in surveys and providing various information. Either way, people behind them use provided details to generate revenue and visitors never win any prizes. We advise against providing any information on pages like happy.luckyparkclub[.]com, also, we recommend to uninstall any PUAs that are installed on a browser or computer as soon as possible.

How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?

Sometimes unwanted apps of this type can be downloaded from their websites. Nevertheless, most of them get installed through intrusive ads (that are capable of executing scripts) and/or when software developers include them in setups of other programs by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". They use this method trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with some other software. They achieve it by hiding information about included PUAs in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar sections of download or installation setups. However, unwanted downloads or installations happen only when people leave all those settings unchanged.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

We recommend to download all software from official and trustworthy websites not use third party downloaders, installers, unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule) and other channels of this type for that to download or install any software. Also, we advise not to complete any download or installation without checking what settings (like "Custom", "Advanced") are available in a setup of software. If a setup contains offers to download or install additional, unwanted software, then they should be dismissed before completing installation or download process. Ads that are displayed on pages related to adult dating, gambling, pornography, and other pages of this kind should not be clicked. Typically, they cause redirects to untrustworthy websites or cause downloads or installations of unwanted programs. To stop a browser from displaying ads and/or causing redirects to shady pages it is required to remove unwanted, suspicious or unknown extensions, plug-ins, add-ons that are installed on it. Programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system should be removed too. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
