As long as it isn't asking for any personal information, I assume it's safe. We do contract with third-party vendors to do research on our behalf.

It asked for age, race, income, and *** but that's as close to personal as it got.  LOL, didn't like that three letter word that is synonymous with gender.

You have on-going issues with account security. You have every reason to be paranoid and untill You get back up and running and have all issues resolved I would be a little dubious about any E-mails You get. To be safe i would let that one slide.
