    I'm okay with this, it is legitimate research from university, not spam or scam, or a politician trying to convince me to vote for them. This is also very different from market research, where people sell the information you give them to advertising companies. Instead, this research will likely be used to inform decisions for the betterment of society.

    I had coffee at a cafe and they made me sign some random social survey contract. I had no idea what it was but I only wrote my name and nothing else but somehow I received a text from this number saying I’m going to get a call for a survey in a few days. How they got my number is beyond me because I did not write anything in that form except my first name

    'You've been selected to take part in an important survey for the Tasmanian Government.
    An interviewer from the social research centre will call you in the coming days to see if you can take part. Call 1800 023 040 to get more info or unsubscribe.' This msg is a trap! The scammer wants you to give them all your personal data. I sent back an sms telling them I would take part if they paid me $120.00 an hour in advance for my participation in their market research. I never heard back?!
