Email from a \"marketing research\" company to do a survey on Western Union for $300. I do surveys all the time but they never offer money like that. That is what raised the first red flag. Then, when I checked for their website, there were too many similar companies with much more official credentials. When I looked up their street address, that it is when it finally flagged on another scam site. Apparently, the Western Union scam of years ago is back. It has been gone so long, it wasn\'t even in my brain anymore. Good thing I looked it up first. Hopefully others will too. Here is the email:
