Dodgy YouGov email - You made the news!

I'm not sure if it's genuine or not, but I've just had an email apparently from YouGov titled "You made the news!".
It says "The results of a survey you participated in have just been published in several news articles." and contains links which aren't to YouGov.
Plus I don't recall participating in the particular survey it mentions.

    What was the exact email address you received it from? The one you see when hovering over it - not the one displayed on screen?

    Sort of thing that used to be sent out by some survey sites - the "you" is simply site members/the company - doesn't mean you completed a particular survey

    I got that email today too. 
    I think it is genuine as it came from YouGov.com email address.
