Adwizz adware virus presents a multitude of online advertisements and they all promote products from Banggood.com online shop. From the look of this shop, it appears legitimate and reliable: a perfect place to purchase goods for lower prices. Despite this initial assumption, we conclude that BangGood services are as genuine and respectable as the ones from Alibaba. Adwizz ads presents coupons/sale offers from Banggood.com and most of them will be a waste of resources.
According to multiple Reviews, the received goods do not function, orders are getting randomly canceled, or they arrive damaged. However, the company neglects the inconveniences of customers by refusing to pay refunds or taking long periods of time to reply and solve issues with the received products (Avoid dangers of online shopping).
This attitude towards online clients should not be supported and we hope that you won’t be tempted to click on advertisements that are generated by the Adwizz adware.
Adwizz adware will display numerous promotional offers from Banggood.com
While usually we indicate vague explanations on the origins of adware programs, Adwizz malware parasite has a very specific method of distribution. Security researchers have determined that it is distributed via a fake “Blue Screen of Death” or BSOD (legit version is common for Windows users). The infection later on shows a rogue Troubleshooter application which will declare that your operating system is no longer fixable.
After this, users will be encouraged to purchase a specific program to solve all issues. Sometime during this process, a sneaky Trojan installs the Adwizz virus into your operating system and you will be forced to repetitively battle the online advertisements from Banggood.com.
One of the customers of Banggood.com addressed the issue of the coupons from this online shop. According to the disappointment consumer, the online advertisements are deceptive as they often include bad deals. Take a look at the full statement:
“Don’t buy anything on flash sales or other seemingly great promotions. Banggood’s tactic is to mix good deals with bad deals. If you get confused and choose a bad deal, you pay and you get the product. On the other hand, if you wisely choose a good deal, you pay and you wait… and wait… After a week or so, they will claim that the product is out of stock and suggest something else. Of course this “something else” will be a bad deal. Even if you choose wisely for the second time and get your money back, you lose a lot of your time. And if you complain, they will offer you some point, worth maybe a dollar. I know what I’m writing as I was (un)lucky to buy a laptop for $500 on a flash deal with 20 or 30% discount”.
In other reviews, the store promoted in Adwizz Ads is called out as “the worst company ever” and “waste of time company”. In addition to this, a lot of shade has been thrown on the customer service of this Banggood.com as they are refusing to reply to consumers’ concerns and have strict refunds policy (which usually means that you will not get back your money).
With this knowledge, we hope you will turn to another online shop for Christmas presents and save your money from being wasted on products that will arrive late/damaged or do not arrive at all.
We should mention that Banggood.com appeared to have some positive reviews a while ago, but the number of negative feedback started to intensively grow. As many people are clearly complaining about this service, we insist you to re-consider the possible purchase from this site.
