sent to "current resident" would have gone unopened into the wood-stove, but the return address
: UCLA Center for Health Policy Research
piqued my curiosity, so I opened it.
Stated I will hear from them in the next two weeks, answering a survey on Health Care Policy - one member of my household will be selected to answer questions, preferably a teenager.
Participation voluntary and confidential...and so on.
Enclosed is a $2.00 bill to thank me, even if I don't want to participate.
The letter, on good stationary and nice graphics, comes in English and four languages
I am sure it's not a scam, i wonder what they want to do with that research.
I don't plan to participate, I don't do surveys, they are usually slanted and I don't wish to bother myself,
they don't usually like my answers anyway, they don't fit the mold.
I think I donate the two dollars to a local charity and let my answering machine deal with them.
What would you do?
