willycontrol.com - hijack attempt or just spammer?

Recommended Posts

I have been recently getting messages in the lower-right NOTIFICATIONS section of my Windows 10 Desktop, referring to a web site willycontol.com . 

Google searches on the topic have yielded no results.

 

Most recently, I received two instances.

 

The first one is from yesterday (2/5/19)  at 3:45 PM, and appears to be an ad from "Walmart Hilton", saying "We have decided to award you $1000." There is a radio button in the ad that says "CLICK HERE."

 

I also received a message yesterday, that said:

"willycontrol.com

This site has been updated in the background."

 

Has anyone on this forum experienced this?
