That’s right, a useless survey trying to get you to sign up for various offers you can probably do without. We’ve reported the App page to Facebook and hopefully it won’t be around for much longer.

According to the Facebook Stats there are 9,629 people who have Liked / Shared this page so far. I imagine the owner of said scam (who is hiding behind a Domains By Proxy registration) is making a tidy packet from this one.
