In today's world one has to be very careful on what to click on when receiving mails.

I received a mail titled:
"Snagit research - share your opinions to win an Amazon gift card!"

This mail looks very legitimate and it probably is: when hovering over some of the links, they refer to TechSmith.

Suggestion: maybe it is worthwhile considering to publish a kind of notification here, so it can be verified that it is okay. 
Personally, in most cases, I delete such mails right away.
