Rifftrax survey real or scam?
« on: July 12, 2017, 01:42:42 PM »
I received an email saying it was from Rifftrax through Survey Monkey offering me a credit on my Rifftrax account if I completed a survey. Wondering if this is real or a scam?

I'd hold off.  I certainly haven't received one.

I DID get one, and the opening line is:

"This is David Martin, CEO of RiffTrax..."

So, I'd say it's a scam.

"Here at Rifftrax, we produce... I want to say jazz albums?"

In 2012, RiffTrax was purchased from Legend by Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett and RiffTrax CEO David G. Martin.

Well, that's the answer then.  Now I feel bad for not getting one.

You are of a special breed.  As is Kiwi Mike.  I guess this is a quiz just for the Oceanians?

Well that's a relief. Thanks for the reply. I do own every Rifftrax apart from the most recent one, maybe that has something to do with it.
