    My Dad received this email. I've edited out identifying names and email addresses.

    The website looks very pretty.

    A few things that bother me:
    - Why do they need 5000 testers?
    - They operate outside of the US
    - Privacy Policy seems sketchy

    Sounds like a scam to collect people's personal data to me.

    Do not click on links (most especially if you're using a Windows PC).
    Delete the email.
    Very, very bogus.

    If it sound too good to be true, it's usually a scam.

    If you ever have to stop and ask yourself (or anyone else), "Is this a scam?" it's a scam.

    Always know this, Anything that sounds too good to be true is a scam or has a catch.
