Interesting email we received today (some text X’d out, typos left in). I’ve done a search and other blogs have written about this company today. I really hope they didn’t do what I think they might have done.
Hi, Heather Harde
I am peter XXXXX who is working for XXXX.com. My company recently lauched XXXX.com
I sent to our company pro file to http://www.techcrunch.com/submit-profile
Now if possible , we would like you to post our company’s simple article
at techcrunch.com like salesforce.com
If Nick Gonzalez or Michael Arrington introduce XXXX.com in positive way
, we can pay him for $ 1,500 USD via paypal.com or wire transfer
within one business day.
We plan to advertise monthly AD in six premium sponsorship ad ($ 10,000 per
month) after we check that Nick or Michael introduce XXXX.com in positive
XXXX.com is not defferent with other aggregating site because our user
can make great video series with others.
That is tatally different with digg.com and other video aggregating site.
Our XXXX toolbar is more powerful to search various videos in each sites.
As XXX.com saw our site and introduced XXXX.com today for free at
I don’t know it was positive article but if techcru nch.com can introduce
XXXX.com more positive way,
we can make good realationship with techcrunch.com
