Just got an email from "aburbach@promotionsbysamsung.com"

Claiming that I won some Samsung Earbuds and when you go to the website it sends you to "Trymarkpromotions.com" which seems to be linked to Samsung according to Samsungs website. How do I know for sure if this is legit? 
They are asking for:
Name: First/ Last
Address:
Phone #:
DOB:

I did it, guess I'll wait and see haha. I can usually spot a fake and am tech savvy. I looked into this for about 3 hours and so far everything seems to be coming back good. Even being talked about on reddit by other people. Very well could still be a scam though. The information I provided them shouldn't be able to obtain anything as far as im aware. If this is legit... Samsung needs to find another way to contact people Screenshot_20230201_073516_Gmail.jpg

Made a post on here about an email I got that seemed extremely fishy saying I won some earbuds... EVERYBODY said it was a scam but I went with it anyway because the info they were asking seemed so mundane. Well, the earbuds just arrived in the mail.
