I recently purchased the Tab4 (8 inch). The preloaded stock File Manager app (called CZ File Manager by ChaoZhuo) serves ads that request your Paypal information. I will try to upload the photos in a following post. Loading the app takes you to the app's Home screen. See that little treasure chest in the bottom-right corner? If you click that, it takes you to the other picture I've included, which urges you to "Spin the Wheel" and transfer your "winnings" to Paypal.
I returned the tablet to Amazon. I tried calling Lenovo and was transferred to various departments. No one really could understand the issue not did they seem to care. They just kept asking for the serial #, which I did not have - as I tried to tell them multiple times - because I returned it.
Wondering if anyone else outthere encountered this and also if Lenovo intends to do anything abot it as it poses a risk to their customers.

This isn't something I'm familiar with, but additional information may help in figuring out what it is and where it comes from: who was the actual seller on Amazon? Amazon? Lenovo? Some other vendor?

A link to the Amazon page might be helpful.

Can you provide a link to the Amazon page in question? It would be helpful to know this. Thank you.
