I'd seen this type of message many times before, of course, but just deleted them as a matter of course.
This time, though, I picked up on "to my client".
One wonders, does the client understand the sleazy way in which this person is going about their work? Does the client even care? Are they just paying for "results"?
I do wonder, too, how many people out there just go ahead and accept the offer... hey, $60 can buy a bit and... "why not? They're just asking for a link!" Probably a number of folks... which then only leads to more messages like this...
P.S. And no, I've never taken money to put links in articles. And I certainly wouldn't for only $60. Now... add maybe 2 or 3 zeroes to that number and maybe I'd start considering it... ;-)
