Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11

One of my client's has a well developed web site, with lots of inbound links pointing at it.
This morning, he received an email from a link partner, notifying him of a scam.
A lady named 'Lisa Parry' had emailed all of his link partners, asking them to remove his link - hence to damage his search engine rankings. Luckily one of his link partners warned him what was happening.
I am posting this to warn other webmasters of this bad seo practise. Also any comments or suggestions on this would be appreciated.
The email address from which this email was sent was an excite.com email address - so presumably untraceable. I am going to email excite, to report the fraudulent email activity. Also my client is going to email all of his link partners, to warn them (a time consuming process none the less)
Thanks in advance for any replies.
As for the excite emailer, you should take a hard look at your client's competitors.
Anyone willing to stoop that low will probably be doing other snarky stuff.
The dodgier the site, the more likely the candidate for this sort of thing. -Larry
