The phone winning survey scam

Doing a little surfing on Chrome over here for some information on regular type things and I have been hit twice with the 'phone winning survey scam' popup. It adds several items to history even though you don't do anything. I closed the browser and restarted it, cleared browser history, cleared recent cookies from my computer, and did a quick scan with my up to date Microsoft Security Essentials program.

It's really quite rare for me, which is why I bring it up. When I first got the internet, I would wade ten pages deep in a search and click on anything. I got more Trojan horses than the Greek had ships. I am a smarter searcher now. If I don't find a link in the first couple of pages, I will modify my search terms.
