National Tobacco Survey?

Usually I don't go for these survey-type things but I thought that I would add this information that I got in an email.

If you got an email like this would you participate?

I would only take the survey if I knew I was getting the $100 VISA card. Otherwise, it is a waste of time and future attempts would only cause people to trash such emails. There needs to be some type of verification of getting the money. Perhaps a phone call to legitimize the business offering the survey, proof of the company's existence.

I took a brief glance at the survey myself but just didn't want to do it. Goodness knows that I could use $100 but I still didn't do it though.

That's simply amazing. Two people responded to this "A Smoker's Blog" from back in 2008, and both today. I also got my Email today.

The gotcha is where they say "complete the participation requirements." Not me.

I am pretty sure this is a data-miner intended to set you up for tons o' spam. It's not much of a questionnaire, for one thing. What use is the information in such a limited poll??

How exactly is one to collect the $100? Do you have to give youe credit card number to recive the credit? I'm not doing THAT!

I just saw it on Craigslist which is probably gonna get a lot of curious people looking like me:

was the ad complete with "SURVET"

It's still something that I don't take too much stock in. I doubt that I would participate in it at all.
