It definitely could be, but you should still always be wary. If yu do take her up on her offer make sure yu know any deal the company presents you inside and out and make sure there's nofine print or loopholes. If you're REALLY worried about such things you could hire legal aid to help with any deals or offers made, though that does tend to be expensive haha. I'm not saying you should definitely take my advice by I'm just putting it out there for you to mull over if you'd like. I hope it helps! =D

Well with the email/phone number thing what i'd suggest is making a new hotmail or whatever and letting the msend it there, wait a few days and see if you start getting random, TRY THIS!, offers on that email. If you do, they just scammed you so they can sell your email to companies that want to sell you sh*t. If this doesn't happen, you may have a good deal.
Hey!Everyone!
Come and See how good I look!
