    Good evening all...

    Just wondering if anyone has had this land via email today please?

    Did not go in to spam folder, straight to inbox so politely wondered whether its linked or from an affiliate etc of one of the casinos I maybe am a member of.

    Not heard of the sender but try and help out when and where I can if it is indeed genuine.

    Rarely click links these days as I've in the past 6 months gone from about 50-60 "Junk" per day to over 200 lol!

    As spammy as spam can be. Probably some huge affiliate site that have asked this company to do a survey.
    A casino send out their own and tell who it's from.

    I didnt get this but I know that GFK is a legitimate marketing company. Ive taken surveys with them in the past on other websites and been paid.

    With that being said, that GFK symbol is the logo their company uses but I have no idea if that email is legit or if the link is safe.

    I just noticed the grammar/spelling "you could be in with the chance of winning in our prize draw"

    That is beyond poor.

    Avoid!

    Yes that does look like familiar, I've had this come through twice in the last few months, reason I say that because the prize/ reward was so crap!

    Done a few surveys here and there , but each one came with something to make it worth my time, unlike this junk :eek:

    Prize draws are a joke. 15 minutes of my time to be entered into some draw that may or may not exist.

    Let me guess, a single mother of 18 children won the draw and she was on her last bowl of cereal for her kids. :rolleyes:

    Ahh yes, that sounds like 'Janet' from Scarborough, who managed to win the 10 mil Euro jackpot when she used her last 25p credit on Mega Millions, thinking she was playing bingo. Timely too, as the bailiffs were already breaking her door down :eek::eek2:

    GfK = Gesellschaft fuer Konsumforschung - corporation for consumer research

    The best known German consumer research company and what used to be once a state owned company. Since their privatization they branched out into all sorts of consumer research areas.

    Would not classify them as spam TBH. Based in Nuremberg, Germany. Worked once for them as a student during my school holidays, but only sorting and handing out the daily mail earning a grand 9.50 DM / hour, which today is 5 Euro but at the time it was enough for a night out :D

    Now, whether the email and logo is legit, that's another story....did you look at the link without clicking on it? or followed back the email trail?
