Email received this morning:
Hello webmaster,
On your site http:||my_site.com there is our link:

title: [name of another website of mine]
url: http:||another_of_my_own_websites.com
Please replace it by adding this new link for me:

Title: [Some Hotels]
URL: http:||some_hotels_website.com/

Best regards.
Obviously the crook webmaster had not realised that he was aking me to remove a link to one of my own websites.

Stay on your guards!

Email was from Russia.

Haha, cheeky. I wonder what the success rate of this looks like.
