Really need a poll for this? Go to zoomerang.com and see what you think (that's a pretty slick site for a "scam").

Zoomerang is a legit site used for conducting online surveys. You can e-mail support to be safe and confirm, but you should be okay here. Plus, they aren't asking for your personal info or anything.

There is a unique web ID that they are using for tracking but is meaningless to anyone outside of zoomerang. Most likely, the ID you have means nothing to zoomerang either. They will use that ID to collect your responses and will send that ID to Stars so Stars will know who to credit the FPPs to. Stars may not even get the answers you provided. Those may be tracked in aggregate.

If this was a scam or spoof, I would expect the link to take you anywhere but the actual website. That's pretty common with phishing. The link will say www.paypal.com, but when you click it the actual URL it takes you to would often be something like http://123.456.789.012/paypal/verify. That's why people fall for phishing. They see paypal in the phony URL and don't give it another thought.

Misch, I think they mean your ZOOMERANG username. They want you to create a Zoomerang account. My wife has been using Zoomerang for years and they are very legit. Like has been said, your best bet is to email support for the final word.

EDIT: oops. Time overlap.

Did I not premise this with "I know this is old". Did not think I needed to start a new thread. The I just get yelled at for not looking up things first.

This thread has everything I wanted to see except an answer to your first question. So now I am the stupid one:D :D , not you.

Sorry, I don't surf 2+2. I barely have time to look at all the stuff posted here.
