The website is well made and will ask users to fill some personal information that will get him 500 USD , firstly it starts by asking for email address and next a survey with your full name , address , phone number and more.
Thats not all as if you bring new customer (or victim) it claims to give you more income, here it is important to never follow such survey that are coming to get information, criminals are making big money from having user details that may be used for spams or advertising some unknown product.
If you are looking to test the resource you can check Honeymail, I have already used it for similar situations where you give a honeymail address and not your own, when you feel you are getting too much spams you just go and remove the alias.
