My guess is yes. I haven't seen it.
They are always for someone else's benefit even if only to advertise something. I don't do door to door sales and I don't do these online things.

I haven't seen this either, but you should let a moderator know about it... You are right not to respond to it in any way. They are "fisching" for info.

I have not heard of anyone else having this issue. One possibility is that these surveys are coming from your computer in the form of adware.

I would suggest that you run a scan on your system with a product like malwarebytes. You might be very surprised with what you find.
