Microsoft Adcenter Survey?
Is this legit?

I received an email inviting me to participate in an adcenter Survey. It says the survey will take 6 minutes and that I will get a $10 amazon gift certifcate. I don't see anything about a survey on the adcenter site. Does anyone know if the email is legitimate?

We had a phone call a few weeks back offering 75 for taking part in a 40 minute phone survey.

We smelt a rat too.

If the email isn't from a Microsoft address, I would be very wary.

Hi there,
I can confirm that a 3rd party company, Sotech, is conducting a survey for us - if the mail is from Chad Law or references Sotech, it's legit.

A while back I tried completing an online survey from a company that MSN had hired, but on the final submit page I got a 500 Server error.

Thanks, ac411. Someone should alert the adcenter support team - I submitted the same question to them before posting here, and as of their reply to me 4 hours ago, they are still looking into it.

Better yet, post something on the adcenter site about the survey. MSN doesn't really expect people to click a link on an email without checking it out, do they?!?!

Anyway, I am off to have the most productive 6 minutes of my day...

edit: Turns out the survey is now closed. So much for the productive part of my day.

I got it, but I think it had ended by the time I began. I know that I did not click on an email link though.
