Oxford University would like to invite you to complete an anonymous survey on online gambling. As a thank you for your time, you will be given the option at the end of the survey to enter a prize draw for the chance to win one of six 80GB video-playing iPods.

Online gambling has increased substantially in the last few years. Little is known about the effects of the Internet on people's gambling behaviour and its impact on people who use these sites a little and those who use these sites a lot. Our survey is intended to fill this gap.

Better understanding of these issues, and the health experiences of people who use online gambling sites, will allow us to find ways to help the small number of people who experience problems controlling their gambling online.

Please take the survey, if you can spare the time.  

Here is the link: www.oxfordgamblingsurvey.org

Many Thanks

    FYI, I allowed the link, because I believe it is a legitimate survey.

    The person is posting from an IP address that leads back to Oxford University.

      Posting from a college computer is  pretty meaningless by itself, but it at least suggests that it's not from a Nigerian who's actually in Nigeria. The domain registration (info below) adds a bit more legitimacy. Global Initiative appears to be a web design and hosting service.

      I went ahead and had a look.  I thought Oxford was a good school, but I'm not impressed with the survey. Many are vague or unclear. My favorite was "have you engaged in illegal activities to obtain drugs?" Gee, no, I've always bought my illegal drugs legally. I'm assuming they're asking if you've stolen to finance your purchases, but I think the questions need to be a bit more refined. I made a lot of assumptions about what they really wanted to know. They're definitely concentrating on probems with gambling, and that made me think a lot of the info could be misleading if answered truthfully.
