Scam - Facebook Instagram Research Study Survey

The survey below, which goes by the name: "Instagram Research Study Survey," is a scam.

The information collected can be used to help scammers deceived their potential victims into sending them money or more information. Also, the scammers make the scam more tempting by promising their potential victims a $100 Amazon gift card for taking part, and make the email message, which contains a link to the survey, appear as if it came from a Facebook email address (, when it was actually sent from some other email account.
