Has any one else received an email about taking part in a research study? This is the email I received and I'm not sure if its a scam or not.

Thank you for your interest in research with Oculus! Below are important details for the study you will be participating in. Please review entirely and reply to confirm your participation in the study.

  • You will need to sign Non-Disclosure Agreement for your participation in the study.
    • You will receive a separate email from Adobe Echo Sign prompting you to review the Non-Disclosure Agreement and provide your electronic signature (you do not need to print this out). The email sender is from [email protected]This must be completed prior to the study.
  • Five minutes before your session time, please be sure to be in front of your computer connected to high-speed internet and with your webcam ready to go.

    Hey spaceghosts! I double checked for you and this is indeed a legit research opportunity. We're looking forward to your input! I also edited out the contact info from your original post, just to make sure we're not getting contacted by folks who are not part of the research study this time around. Thank you for reaching out!
