Simon Fell > Its just code > Microsoft Survey ?

Monday, November 29, 2004

So I just this in an email, is it legit? looks legit, contains pointers to pages on microsoft.com that mention the sending company, but the participate button takes you to www8.survey-poll.com not to surveysite. Trawling whois indicates that survey-poll is registered to surveySite in Canada. I think it's legit, but I'm not 100% sure, I actually did the survey, and the reason I'm still not sure, is that after 2 questions it asks you for your email address and seems to indicate that the survey is over (having not answered a single question yet about a Microsoft product). So, (Scoble, you out there?) is this legit and just a survey problem, or a good scam ? How am I supposed to differentiate this against other email that claims to be from Microsoft and isn't. If Microsoft wants me to take their survey (or anything else for that matter that comes in an email), the content better be hosted on www.microsoft.com, or its just not going to fly anymore.
