Beware of Winning Voucher Link Received on WhatsApp, its Fake/Fraud/Scam (Updated)

Once you click on the link, it opens a website showing a 1 min survey from famous brands like H&MStarbucksMcDonalds.comKFCIKEASamsungNextSPAR7-Eleven, which will result in free voucher of a few 100s. This website is customized to your region thus you will see local cities names and local currency:

The customization of the region can be seen in the weblink, this is based on client side scripting, I changed the interface of the website by just changing the weblink:

If you proceed with the survey it will ask you a few questions and then it will ask you to share this survey with 10 friends on WhatsApp. You will also see some fake comment which will appear as if those are from Facebook:

If you click on Share it will ask you to open your WhatsApp. Once you have shared it, it will ask you to enter your information:

From here they will gather your personal data and then it will be used for either selling it to Spammers or for Customized Fraud where you will receive an email addressed to you (Phishing Hacking). (You can read more about it at:http://naumankhan.blogspot.com/2015/11/to-spot-phish-infographic-phishme.html)

Once you enter your data and click continue, you will see the following screen with promotions and in addition some spam/advertisements/adult websites will open:
