I say stay away from this survey.
I did a few minutes of research on them (through the Leeds website and Facebook) a couple weeks back and don't find any pertinent connection between what their Leeds biographies say they are studying and what the survey purports itself to be. They most likely are using some subtle form of deception to gain information they feel could not be obtained directly, which, to be truthful, is what most surveys attempt.
It also shows quite poorly on their advisory committee that both the survey and the survey invitation e-mail were written in such bad English. Either the advisory committee doesn't know this survey is being conducted (which is against the rules of academic research) or has not performed its due diligence by reviewing the survey for content and correct grammar.
At worst, they are trying to gain information to sell. At best, they are trying to make us more likely to buy certain products by manipulating their intrinsic appeal to our irrational mind as it more often than not over-rides our rational mind.
we would like to let you know that both me Alessandro Biraglia (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and Vita Kadile (email@example.com
) are indeed Doctoral researchers at Leeds University Business School and the reason why you have not found this project on our official web profile (not to mention Facebook) is because this is an additional research we are conducting besides the PhD.
Also we would like to inform you that our supervisors Professor Matthew Robson and Dr. Josko Brakus are aware of this and support us in all matters.
Moreover, we would like to state that we are not using any form of deception, manipulation, persuasion, misconduct etc., and this research is only for academic purposes.
Therefore, if you still have any questions/comments please contact us personally and refrain from abusing our sincere academic research intentions
