As Wheel said, virtually all agencies do this.
Really? The agencies I'm familiar with wouldn't do something like this, they know better. If there are agencies that you know who are doing this, I'd be willing to bet that it's offshore SEO being done in the SEO Sweatshops that now plague our industry. Ya, just what a local Mom and Pop needs, 100s or 1000s of links from China, India, Pakistan, etc.
Tell me, do you think Google isn't on to this? I mean, how many local U.S. businesses do you know who normally/naturally have a link profile that is 90% offshore?
