    I got an email from what suppose to be ahrefs.com

    It says:


    Anyone else get this? Is it a scam or legit. It's just not connected to the website at all its a google forms doc connected with intercom.io.

    Not doing it just thoughts?

    Seems fake.
    They are a big company, so they would definitely do the case study themselves using their own sites.
    It seems like some spammer is trying to get SEO leads

    Ahrefs or any legit company will never ask you to grant them "all access" to your site. For sure, it's a scam!

    Definitely a scam. Just look at the end of the email address. Be sure to report it.
