Of late, I am getting quite a few (3-4 on a daily basis) offers asking for text links on my sites. These emails are delivered in Bulk Mail folder of hotmail (means hotmail consider them as spam). I can make out some of these emails as spam as some offer buying text link on virtually insignificant sites belonging to me.
However, when I responded to some of the emails (which I thought could be genuine) I was able to make a deal in 3 - 4 cases. But in all the cases the payment was made to my paypal account using credit card (very prune to charge back / fraud). My sixth sense is telling me there is something fishy about whole affair. But I am not sure.
So, what should I do? Should I respond to such emails and offer them text links? Or I should totally ignore them as spam.
