Possible spam?

[ Edited ]

Random question but occasionally when I am using Google a popup appears apparently from 02 saying that thanks to my ip addresss etc I have won either a tablet or phone if i pay postage for DHL to deliver.  Never know if its genuine or not and i dnt wnt to risk it. Would be nice if it was genuine but I dnt know if it is or not.  Any thoughts?

 

Thank you in advance.

It's a scam I'm sure. I would never click on any links from a pop up.

You know the old saying...'If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is'...

100% scam.
Download Malwarebytes and run a scan. Delete any apps it identifies as dangerous.
