Link Building - Check for fraud Link Building - Check for fraud

Below is an email conversation between a cold caller link builder offering back links and us. Do read the conversation from the bottom up (older to newer mails). We would strongly recommend to insist, as we did, to obtain references and guarantees. This is a typical fraudulent catch where a random person contact to sell back links, ask your payment and vanish once you have made your payment and get very rude when challenged. We have removed the caller email address to comply with data privacy – However the name remains included. The copies below speak for themselves:

Since when was online and the internet a place of trust?????

Placing a link has absolutely zero financial risk to you, paying someone unknown has a financial implication.

Anyway, I see that rather than appeasing my suspicion by giving me references and guarantees, you play the “trust” card.

Sorry but no thank you

The choice is your sir, It's online work. and this industry works on trust. I also don't know you but I will place your link first then you will pay. You will not pay before placing the links. Will you?

Many thanks,

Marcus

You have had my reply – nothing guarantees me that my link will stay up once I have made the payment.
