I received an email today from "Harold Meyers" for "Gongos Research". It was a survey asking about card shopping habits and how the other stores compare to Hallmark for various things.

For doing the survey, you're to receive 300 Gold Crown Points and there's a contest for all those who complete the survey. I forgot to write down what the prize was, since I've done a lot of surveys over the years, have NEVER won their prizes and that's not the reason I do surveys.

I think Hallmark is probably behind it, since I don't know how any other company would have access to my Gold Crown account!!

I was just curious to find out if anyone else got this survey.

I did. I'm not sure of its authenticity. Nowhere in the email does it give my HMK Gold Crown member number so I still don't know if it's from HMK. I haven't gone to the link but I am guessing I'd have to give this person my Gold Crown member number and I'm not sure I want to do that.

Can anyone see our email addresses if they are not Yulelog members?

I checked the site out through McAffee and it's legit. I took some of the survey. It stopped me when I responded that I shop at HMK 2-3 times per month so I didn't have to give my Gold Crown number but I also don't get the 300 points.

Karen, how often did you say you visit HMK?

I got this email and the thing that bothers me most about it is the very last sentence that says "If you have received this electronic message in error, please notify us immediately and destroy the original message and all copies." WHAT? Somehow I don't think a legitimate offer would include that kind of statement, so I sent it to Spam. Mine also didn't say anything about a contest.

Hi Debbie,
It didn't ask me for my gold crown card, so that's why I figured Hallmark was the one who wanted the survey done, along with the questions having to do with where else you buy cards (I only answered Walmart, since if I don't want to make another stop and I'm going to Walmart anyway, I've bought cards a couple of times there, since the Hallmark that was in that strip mall closed last year.

I answered once a month on the question, since I figure it's an average of the times I don't go there after Valentine's and before Premiere and the number of times I go there several times a month from Premiere to 12-31.

Lynn, I didn't get the statement you mentioned in my survey.

Interesting!

I got that email / survey too. I was never asked for my gold crown number either.

Lynn,

I have received legitimate notices with that same statement.

Do those of you filled out the survey think you answered all of the questions or do you think you were "cut short" at some point?

For the survey I did, it got to the end page, thanked me for doing the survey and said my gold crown account would be credited.

That survey wasn't as interesting as the one I did for The X Factor tho!
