Paypal Survey Scam

Got this in my email box, I'm 90% sure it is a scam:

Dear scamcomwebmaster,

In a continuing effort to provide our users with the best possible online payment experience, we randomly select registered users, like you, to participate in surveys. Your feedback will help us enhance your PayPal experience. We appreciate your taking a few minutes to respond.

Upon completion of the survey you will be entered into a prize drawing to win $1,000 CAD.

To complete the survey, simply click on the Web address shown below (or copy the address into your browser).

https://www.paypal-survey.com/survey...f2affe28267420

Sincerely,

PayPal

Notice it is not paypal.com. I think they are pshing for my identity to wipe my account out.

Re: Paypal Survey Scam

Please tell us why you feell that way about the likelihood that you would recommend PayPal to a friend or businessperson as a way to send money online. Please be as specific as possible.

I tried it. I don't see in the survey that they ask you for any identity or bank details.
