They are out there for Moderna also...we have received both...I was pretty sure we would not be getting surveys deleted.
Thanks for confirming it is a scam. 👍

Check your credit cards action closely, I got a charge yesterday for 253 dollars from Midwest and it is pending so I have to call the credit card company tomorrow, I locked my account for now. I think I saw that survey on my email!

The local news here has been warning people about this.

I have gotten the survey one too, but haven’t had any shots yet, so didn’t pay any attention. The spam email that I got that did draw my attention was one with an address somewhat similar to Amazon, so I opened it. It had a partial password that I use, in the subject line! The email stated that they have been looking through my computer and saw all the porn sites I’ve been on, and evidently a video that I supposedly have out there that would be pretty damaging to my reputation, so if I send them $2800 they will leave me alone and not make it public. Sheesh!! As if! I told my siblings about that and my brother said he got the same type of email, but they only hit him up for $1400! It’s really scary that part of my password was in that email....wonder how they got that! That’s a great idea to check out the credit cards often!

Yes, I have gotten multiple emails already, from both "Pfiser"and "Moderna". I send them straight to junk blocker.

Passwords get leaked regularly, just change them often and don't worry about it. It's a common scam known as the extortion scam.

Recycler, I’ve received the porn scam twice in the past month. The first time, I opened the email because I was curious to see what the scammer wanted. The second time, sent to junk folder.

Thank you so much for the warning about the COVID scam. And, I also received the porn scam.

I received such an email but knew right away it was a scam. There is no charge to have the vaccines anywhere. And especially, as you said no one is offering you $$ directly from the company. What a hoax. I of course went to the local hospital for mine as soon as I was called. I was already in their system so I didn't have to do a thing. Thanks for sharing this.
