I received an email from "PayPal" addressed to me (first and last name), asking that I go to *removed* and participate in a research thing, with a chance to win $1000. I am suspicious. I downloaded and installed Iconix (using gmail mail client) but it doesn't work (even with it's own "verify your installation" email).
The web address is clearly paypal-research.com, but lots of companies use secondary web addresses for user surveys. I am not clicking any links or opening the website until I get more info. I've Googled the address, but it's unclear whether it's a scam, just from the Google results.
So, is this PayPal research emai legit?
