Did anyone receive an email from "TNS Custom Research Inc on behalf of QVC"?

I just did and it has links in it....I would NOT participate or click on the links--it looks sketchy and unprofessional.

Just my hunch, and wanted to alert you all in case.

Nope. LOL, they are on their own-- I wanted to warn you all. I could be real, but ...

No, I didn't receive anything like that, but you are smart to not open any links. Sounds very fishy. Scottie's suggestion to forward it to the Q is a good one.

There was one a while ago to test their beta site. You got a $50.00 QVC certificate. I didn't get one but my bff did.

I would be suspicious of it too - especially after what happened a whlie back with email accounts exposed and other information.

Is TNS Custom Research a real company, by the way????

There is a company called TNS Research, I just looked it up. Whether or not Marianne's email is from them is a different story....

Marianne, hover your mouse over a link (DON'T click on it). See what shows up at the bottom of your screen-it should be somehow related to the company. That's how I found out the email I received from Wells Fargo really wasn't from Wells Fargo. It would have taken me to some phishing site.

Yes, TNS is a real company.

If you don't take the bait you won't get caught.

I received one from QVC several months or so ago. They didn't offer anything in return. They just wanted me to fill it out. I've never heard of the company mentioned.

There is a company that is called TNS Global, but that does not mean THIS email is real.

I am unimpressed with their presentation in the email IF it is real. Really cheesy looking, unprofessional.

kdgn, I hovered and nothing shows up. I am on a Mac, don't know if that makes a difference.

Well, even if it is a real company, if you're suspicious, you shouldn't open it.

THere's lots of threads floating around the different forums about people getting malware after answering a supposed QVC survey. Not sure about email. Some said they were getting a popup.

I take pleasure in my 'transformations'. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.
