It might well be genuine, and I like to help out students. But a post on here as an introduction would be a good start.

I got it and confess that I opened the link. It was a very simple questionnaire about reasons for choosing cars and what are main priorities etc. E.g performance, cost etc.
There want any request to provide personal info, except age group and it didn’t ask what model you own.

Basically it did seem quite innocent but I agree it’s jot something that should be opened but I did it just out of curiosity.

I’m a sucker for a scam but I don’t think I’ve been caught this time.
