I’ve just received a suspicious email:
I am interested in purchasing a text link to my site on yours – tellini.info . Could you please advise what is the price for advertising space on your site?
Thank you in advance
For starters, I don’t get that many visitors to justify the many advertising offers I’ve been receiving lately.
Also, if you were serious about your offer, you’d send a better email, at least you would properly introduce yourself. Instead the sender used an address like “email@example.com”, but set a reply-to to a different mailbox. I’ve googled a bit and the first address seems a known scammers fake email.
Finally, searching for the mail content on Google, brought me to this post of another blogger who’s had the same experience. It contains a link that explains why these people need those links.
In conclusion, this is an open answer to whoever is going to ask again: I’m not interested in helping you with your advertising spam!
