How Does The Fruust.com Scam Work? – Reviews & Complaints
I registered a product code with worksharper, Fruust.com came up when i scanned the image. In order to validate the warranty, a credit card number is required. I immediately contacted worksharper’s business office. They said they would follow up with it. If their product is made in China, that is probably where the QR code on the back of the warranty card was inserted at the manufacturing plant.Big D
I parked in a public parking lot and had to register with a QR code and Fruust popped up and I missed it was not the company running the garage. Had already submitted my CC information and tried looking at the site later on and it is blank. I have informed the parking management company and my bank. Will look for a charge to show up.Dave
Was trying to register a gift card. Fruust.com came up over and over. I thought it was part of the registration because it wouldnt let me do anything else until I put in my information. As soon as I realized what it was doing I tried to go back and cancel. Cant even get in the site. A complete scam. I would like it canceled immediately.Joe

Then scam also manipulates reputable mainstream websites. It pops up on dental office patient portals, doctor connection sites, restaurant QR code menus, parking apps, scooter rental apps, etc. as an Ad. The free entertainment trial lures people, and they end up clicking and providing their personal information.
