Ok, the spammers are at it again. Today I recieved the following from a spammer:
I am the webmaster of [website deleted]
I was reading your blog and I see you have a very impressive way of describing things. The information you provide is very helpful. So I was wondering if you could take a look at our product [deleted] and write a review about and post it in your blog.
I would really be interested to know if you would be able to post the review in your blog with links to our site.
[Name & Email deleted]
I write reviews about things I find interesting usually books, movies or music. At this time I have decided not to endorse, promote or review most products, so don’t ask me to write a review of your product.
Oh, I checked out the spammers site. Their product looks like a rip-off to me. So don’t waste your money on spammers products.

I always delete those things as well. It is really annoying actually.
I delete them. Although a couple of them have been fodder for blogs and I find that my About Comments page is getting longer.
Hey, the spammer asked me to review their product so I did. The product was some sort of miracle glasses that would replace the need for prescription lenses forever.
LOL – sounds like you should do as they ask, and review their product. Just don’t give them any links, but blast them for trying to scam people. That’s what I would do.
The last time someone asked me to review their product, they offered to pay me for reviewing a cash advance service. Strangely, they asked me to do that even after having read an old entry wherein I exposed payday cash advance companies for being a predatory industry aimed at defrauding the working class socioeconomically disadvantaged. I pointed that old entry out to them, and they said they don’t care if I blast the industry, as long as I don’t blast them. Well, I looked at their page, and they were even worse than most, charging near 1000% interest on payday loans. Argh.
I wish I had written an entry on them in particular. I still regret not having done so, but I can’t remember the exact name of the company and I didn’t save their email. 😦
Go Elf…looks like good advice Dee.
That sounds like a good advice. I’ll remember next time. I did write a one sentence review though.
I think the only product I’ve written was my tribute to Dr. Pepper. Of course that is a review but my beverage of choice.
Spam is EVIL.
Well, I think the Big Guy has a good point.
Mmmmm Dr. Pepper….
Oh, dear! Here they go again!
If you ever make it to Texas you must try some Dublin Dr Pepper.
What? Don’t you know all good Baptists drink DP.
