I got an email from someone claiming to be from GamesSalad ([email protected]) and it looks very suspicious. It may be legit but I am posting a screenshot...

    Yea, it's spam. You can tell by the sender's address. It's "[email protected]"

    If you can "win something" they'll want to have you enter your address.
    Report it as phishing.

    I wouldn't panic just yet. We do use Intercom and we have an Alex that might send these sorts of things. I sent him a message about this thread so hopefully he'll poke in here and clear things up in the morning.

    It's legit. I'm looking for 100 answers to a developer economics survey. There are prizes, and respondents get to see a snapshot of what other developers have answered. Please do fill out the survey if you get invited! In case you don't know me, I'm the marketing guy; I'm the one that sent the mail. - Alex (at GameSalad).

    Alex also sends the emails after attending the monthly meet-ups i believe. I did the survey as well.

    It's legit. I have received emails from Alex a few times but I didn't get that recent email you got ... :wink:

    It's legit, I did the survey and all you need to do to complete it is answer a few questions, send in your address, bank details and a couple of passwords (for security reasons) so it's pretty straightforward, what was also great was that Alex then told me that I had a distant cousin in Zambia that I was unaware of, who turns out to have been a prince who recently died in a skiing accident and left me $40m, which came at just the right time as there has been some screw up at the bank and my account has been frozen (something about a massive cash withdrawal ?).

    :tongue:

    Wow... I got this email also and was going to ignore it but after reading @Socks post clearly that would have been a horrible mistake. Here's to hoping I have a distant cousin who recently died in a freakish accident and left everything to me. :crosses fingers: x :# x

    You are to late! I used my time advance in germany and filled in all details 10 hours ago. And you know what - the prince of zambia already sent me the $40m to my bank account :-)

    It's legit and I was given a useful PDF after completing it. Oh yeah I think I did this survey last year as well...

  • pHghostpHghost London, UKPosts: 2,301Member

    Last year as well? How much of the $40m do you still have left?

  • iamcarteziamcartez Houston, TexasPosts: 648Member

    Its all gone - I spent it on Apple watches and a rMBP.

    I can see you showed frugal restraint, getting a refurb MacBook Pro. You'll go far in life!

  • gamestudentgamestudent Posts: 504Member, PRO

    Hmmm... An Apple watch for each arm... Not a bad idea...
