Default is this a scam or legit

I recieved an email from dodge stating they are offering reimbursment plus 10 bucks on oil changes in return for a service review. There was some personal info I had to submit and it caught me right at the time I needed an oil change wich will be next week. Before I go further with the process I would like to find out if its legit or a scam. Has anyone else recieved this email and does anyone no anything about it, thanks

I would check out the source. Make sure it's coming from where you think it is. Perhaps even go so far as to print it out, and take it to your local dealer to see what they have to say.

I myself, would be a little weary of sending personal info out when I got the request in an unsolicited email.

good luck

Exco

This smells of scam. Dodge usually contacts owner via regular mail. Unless you previously signed up / registered on a Dodge site and selected something about contacting you by email with special offers, etc; I'd be very wary. Besides.....if you did signup/register, then they should have all the information they need....

Dodge will not ask for personal information.

Call your dealer's service department. They may have more information and if they don't, I'm sure they'd like to know someone is scamming their customers.

I am unaware of any Chrysler program doing this. If it were from Chrysler, they would already have most of your information from when you bought/serviced your truck.

I smell scam.

Agreed ^^^^. I get e-mails from Ram but it's advertising only i.e. current incentives, pricing etc. The other e-mail I get from them highlights current service specials at my local dealership and that dealership is mentioned by name but nothing else. I would definitely print that out and take it in to see what they say but would not reply to that e-mail.

I received the same thing.

There is contact info in the mail if you want to check with Dodge.
I don't think it is a scam but a recruitment for "Secret Shoppers". They use you (an unknown mystery shopper) to collect data for thier clients (Dodge). There are a lot of hoops to jump and through and reports to get your repayment. The SS program can work for you, but, it is a "job". Don't for get the IRS, you pay taxes on this new income and the SS company reports it.

I opted not to sign up! Not worth the hassel.

This smells of scam, run from it. I receive oil change promotion on the mail last month from my local dealer, they already have my info, why would them ask for it again?
