I've gotten some emails from Opinion Research <[email protected]> saying they were taking a survey on transportation-related issues. They were offering $10 Amazon gift cards for competing the survey.

I looked at the survey and it was all about Uber & Lyft and I wondered how they knew I drove for them? How did they know to send this survey to me!? Hmm...

Made me wonder if it was a phishing scam? Like by hackers trying to get some information from you. Or even from our auto insurance companies trying to scope out and see if we were driving for uber & lyft. They did ask that exact question in fact! When I wouldn't answer that question they bounced me out of the survey.
