I got this in my mail; Is it really from Crucial?

It was headed: "Your recent Crucial memory order"

The reason I ask is that the "Mailto" link does not work.

I'm a Direct Sales and Support agent from Crucial Technology. We’re currently looking for ways to improve our service and products, and we hope that your feedback will help us to do this.

I’d like to invite you to complete a quick online questionnaire relating to some memory you bought from us a few weeks ago.

The survey consists of 11 questions about PC memory.

To give us your input, please go to:

It's only a survey.

Ignore it if you're concerned - it won't affect your order if you do.

The Mailto link, that set me thinking it was someone trying to direct me to an iffy site, works here.

Where-as it didn't on the page of my e-mail.

Oh, and the order was some 11 months ago.

the fact there's contact information makes me think it's a real email.fake email don't usually give contact details

you could always phone them and ask them if surveys the same as this were being sent out to previous customers or current ones?

The reason I posted this is because the Contact Information in the e-mail didn't work, which made me suspicious.

as i posted at 16.54. It does work here so I filled it in and closed the thread

You will note the middle contact is to a site called "zoomerang". Unknown to me and clicking on it and downloading whatever it contained could have left me, and if a fraud, potentially others to risk of a Trojan or Virus.

I am a little wary of unsolicited e-mails suggesting that I visit unknown sites.

This is why I posted here, before I stuck my head over the parapet. "zoomerang" could have been anyone anywhere. It appears that they are the real McCoy but i only know that in retrospect.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
