A dubious website, is not a destination that users are likely to open willingly. After all, the site appears to be primarily interested in taking advantage of its visitors instead of providing them with any meaningful service. Indeed, when infosec researchers analyzed the page, they observed it displaying various clickbait and manipulative messages designed to mask its true intentions.

When opened, the site tries to convince visitors that they must pass a CAPTCHA check to reach the content of the page. Of course, there is no such content. In reality, users who follow the instructions of the fake messages will be unknowingly subscribed to the site's push notifications. A variant of the messages shown by the page includes:

'Click 'Allow' to verify that you are not a robot!'

The notifications associated with these untrustworthy websites are, in most cases, simply intrusive advertisements promoting equally untrustworthy destinations and products. Users could be shown advertisements for other online tactics, phishing portals, shady adult-oriented platforms, etc. In addition, users that interact with the advertisements or itself could trigger unwanted redirects. One of the sites that users may be taken to has been confirmed to run a variation of the 'AMAZON TRIAL' scam.
