ITMS and Phishing?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I got an email from Apple talking about a market research survey that they want me to participate in ebcause I have bought iTunes, which i have, with a CC, useing this email account, butthe site of the survey is, that is not a US website, is this real? shoul i contact apple? or did they hire a canadian company that hasnt the foresite to get their name .com, and .ca?

It looks authentic, fonts, layout, it really looks like real apple, but I have a sinking feeling about it.

Should I call apple? or report it to gmail as phishing? Or by some chanse could this thing be real? thoughts?

    Sounds phishy to me. Go ahead and call, but I don't know who exactly to call. Is there a corporate number for the iTMS? E-mail might get through just as quickly.

    Well, it's supposed to be a blind market survey. If they ask you for any financial info or identity info, bail out. These surveys are supposed to be anonymous, right?
