Email form spam from Laura Matthews
My name is Laura,
I would like to suggest a free link exchange with xxxx.com or any other sites you own.
You will be pleased to know that now I am having a handful of quality projects for free link exchange
that I am sure could be beneficial and productive for both of us.
Please let me know if you interested in more details, or have any other thoughts on the matter.
Waiting to hear back from you!
Link exchange huh? I link to Laura, Laura links to me? Sounds too good to be true!!

Have you ever received this communication through email or email forms?
Ignore it! Why you ask?
Can you trust this company?
Have you ever heard of this company before? Do they have a WORKING phone number? Are they even real?
Can you trust the sender?
A good email system and a bit of searching would tell you that the ip address is from another domain and if you do a quick search on the reply to email address that this person or "SEO" company has been email spamming, forum spamming and more.
Is this company in America?
There's a good chance you are receiving this message in America, so the chances of you getting any money back from them is laughable. Unless you just want to throw your money into a hole, then leave them alone. Find a local SEO company that you can hold accountable if you are unsatisfied with the results.
Even Google gets these spam emails
Web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.
Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.
Amazingly, we get these spam emails too:
I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.
Excessively poor grammar is a dead giveaway to the reliability of what is supposed to be a reputable company.
Asks you to reply
Replying ANYTHING back is a bad idea because many times it lets the sender know you are a real person and that the email address they are spamming is valid.
Wants you to participate in link exchanges
Scammers are building regular websites and asking others for link exchanges and after enough links have been gathered, the site is then converted into a spammy site.
Ignore it! Ignore it!
Sometimes the spam is intended to hurt the reputation of a competitor. That's why it's best to simply ignore email spam altogether.
