NOTE 2: I know Adam (never met in person, but have known him for nearly 10 years online). I know he's a grad student, I know he's working on his master's, and I know this is legit.
NOTE 3: I just checked the informed consent. The survey is limited to USAian citizens.
My name is Adam Sanford. I am a graduate student at the University of California, Riverside, and I am conducting a study of social attitudes in America towards the law and the legal system. I am looking for participants who are over the age of 18 and have access to the Internet, who are willing to take a short online survey about certain laws and legal issues. This survey will only ask your opinion about laws and legal issues. You will not be asked about personal experiences with the law or the legal system. Your privacy will be protected at all times and no personally identifying information, including IP addresses, will be collected. The informed consent statement is available at http://student.ucr.edu/~asanf001/online_consent_weber.html. If, after reading the informed consent statement, you would like to participate, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=366km4LxjBSnraZ4ErEyjA_3d_3d .
I would also appreciate it if you could forward this posting on to others who may be interested in taking this survey. Thank you for your time and consideration.
