It sounds really appealing. But it sounds fake. Can't find anything on 'Fast Track Research' other than some organization that researches drugs. Also weird as hell the guy's name is 'Tinkerbell' and the email originates from firstname.lastname@example.org (notice the three T's).
Anyone else get this? I'd assume it's a scam, but they're going to mail me something apparently. They're not asking me for any info, which I would expect from a scammer. I don't remember providing my address, but I do all kinds of surveys so it's certainly possible they have it.
