Diverse Learning Environments (DLE) Survey Scam!

<p>Has anybody actually received their BruinCard credit?
When I completed the survey the website said:
30% response rate = First 2,500 respondents
40% response rate = First 5,000 respondents
50% response rate = All respondents recieve $5 in BruinCard credit
(7,500 respondents if you calculate from linearity of previous two)</p>

<p>They just changed the website, which now says:
$5 BruinCard Credit for the first 12,000 Responders</p>

<p>If you combine those two, it would mean that every respondent would now receive credit. But I have not received anything after completing it. But, it seems like they changed the website since 12,000 have already responded, which would mean that nobody else would receive credit. To me, it seems like a scam, since they changed the conditions all of a sudden.</p>

<p>I got it. The email (sent 3/11/11) said this:</p>
