Often, Ouisys.com is advertised by pop-ups that don’t need you to click on any ads; these pop-ups get triggered by you clicking anywhere on the page, or by clicking on elements that are not ads. For example, Ouisys.com might pop up when you click on a video or a download link.
Once Ouisys.com shows up, it might display a video player or a download link of its own. It tries to blend in with whatever site it’s advertising on. This makes it look as if Ouisys.com isn’t an ad, but a real part of the site that you were just on, even though it’s not related.
Ouisys.com wants to sign you up for a subscription
Ouisys.com shows pages that look like video players and file download links. It then asks you to provide your phone number. Supposedly, it’s needed before you can access the video/file that Ouisys.com pretends that it has. You then get a message with code that you need to type into another site.

The services that Ouisys.com tricks people into subscribing to cost a few Euros a week. Our examples show costs from 3.2 to 3.5 Euros a week. This can add up to a substantial sum, especially if you fall for more than one similar scam, and especially if you don’t notice the added sums in your bills.
