    The sites aren't paying for people to fill out forms. They are paying affiliated web sites for the difficult task of sending quality traffic to their site and just use the CPA metric for keeping score.

    The complication to the whole process is that there is a band of thieves on the net who look on CPA simply as being paid for filling out fake information on a form.

    Exactly.

    These programs are paying you to find and refer a specific type of person (for example, someone who was recently in an accident, or someone who is interested in a home loan, etc).

    In order to get paid, you are going to have to send them people who really do meet these qualifications. Since they are contacting these people, they're going to know if you are referring the wrong people (or filling out forms with fake data).

    "The complication" is that it's difficult to find the select group of people the merchant is seeking (unless you happen to have a well-known website which attracts these people).

    $8.50 a lead sounds like it would have to be very targeted.

    as for getting paid for it, that's something only the person paying for it can tell you.
