    I am not sure what is going on here, completely. But I found this in Craigslist, offering to pay married couples $100 to visit a resort.

    When clicked, said coupled is offered an Adsense-page, with signup.

    Not sure where the money is yet, aside from Adsense. Might be luring people into signing up for some travel-oriented CPA.

    I only just found this, looking for money-making stuff.... and seem to have found someone else's method.

    If this gives anyone else ideas, good! Craigslist is still working for people. :)

    Hey, whatever works. The visitor can either exit through the offer itself... or a paid Adsense ad. With enough volume, this is probably worth it.

    I suspect they make money through the email they send out.

    look at this ;)

    Look again, they don't collect your email.

    My guess is they're selling the name/address/phone as vacation or timeshare leads.

    BTW, that is one of the worst landing pages/sites I've seen in some time. The concept is good but the delivery sucks.

    Probably could throw a vacation CPA offer on, some of those pay out > $75.

    This would be the perfect way to lure people for timeshare CPA stuff, for sure. Thanks for looking, everyone.

    It's presented as a paid vacation "job" for couples. I thought it was hilarious!

    It says at the bottom this is a legitimate job opportunity. This is just some asshat that don't have a clue.

    WTF is the woman with the cash all about? Mixed messages... it's not like you're "getting rich" or some other such thing from recieving $100 for your time!

    I suppose you could make your sign up page as bad as possible, like really terrible and then the people that do fill it in... man, those people will sign up to just about anything.

    If you're looking for high conversion I would change the landing page to something that looks much more legit.
