I just found this on Craigslist. I'm not gonna do the referral thing, but maybe some of you can. Anyway, here's the post... good luck!

I need people who are NOT heavy Internet users and would likely not be looking at “ETC”
on Craigslist. So I’m willing to pay you $25 for each referral you send me that I can use for a study. I have 6 months of studies coming up and I need lots of people.

The folks I need are less computer savvy then the average person (especially in the Bay Area) but do have email and stay in touch with family and friends, even if it’s not daily. They most likely can use a search engine, read the headlines sometimes but don’t live on the computer. People who typically use the internet to communicate with others.

Most of you looking at this ad will not meet these criteria, but you may have friends, neighbors, family who do and you both can use some extra cash. The more people you refer that I can use, the more money you make. I’m looking for MANY folks who fit this criteria and there is no limit to how many people you can refer.

You will get $25 for every person you refer that qualifies and completes a study. The participant will get $125 for their time and feedback. Studies typically take between 90-120 minutes.

Please respond with your name and contact information as outlined below and include a little background of the person/s you have in mind that might meet this criteria. I will get back to everyone!

Your Name:
Your Age:
Your email:
Your Phone#:

Referrals Name:
Age: (or approximate)

Why do you think this person would make a good candidate for this criteria?
