Someone has breached Meetup.com security and been sending out links to some sketchy surveys.
I saw some more yesterday so I figured I’d post a warning.
Meetup.com seems to be aware of it (as the messages are being deleted) but alas when I asked support I got no response and I see no mention of the security breach on their site.
If you see these, do not click on the links.
