Why do I get pop up notices that ‘my’ IP address has been selected to receive a new iPhone 11? Is this a scam? I also get warnings of ‘unusual activity’ and have to prove I am not a computer. Connected?

@Medesimo 

Yes it's a scam.

Ignore them.

You may have an app with airpush ads installed.

You can download malwarebytes app to try and trace it.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
