Paymentsweb[.]org displays a fake CAPTCHA to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications. This page claims that it is necessary to click the "Allow" button to prove that its visitors are not robots. Notifications from this page can be used to promote scams, questionable apps, web pages, and so on.

Offersworld4u[.]online is one of the pages that paymentsweb[.]org is used to promote. Both of these pages share the same purpose. Other pages opened by paymentsweb[.]org are likely to be untrustworthy too.

Paymentsweb[.]org page in general

Paymentsweb[.]org and similar websites cannot be trusted. The same applies to notifications that they can display. Usually, these pages are promoted via shady ads, other websites of this kind, or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).

How did adware install on my computer?

Users often download and install PUAs when they download or install programs without checking and changing "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings available in downloaders and installers. A big part of PUAs is distributed by bundling them with other programs.

In other cases, users download and install PUAs by clicking on advertisements designed to run specific scripts or through fake installers downloaded from untrustworthy pages.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Download applications (and files) from legitimate/official pages. Avoid using P2P networks, unofficial sites, and similar channels/sources for downloading files. Do not download or install programs without checking their downloaders or installers for "Advanced", "Manual, "Custom" or other settings.

Also, do not click on advertisements that dubious pages have on them. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?

Internet users should be very skeptical when being asked to allow notifications. While this is a useful feature that allows you to receive timely news from websites you like, deceptive marketers frequently abuse it.

Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
