    Today i received email.

    Hi, I'm <name>. Few days ago someone asked me to publish a guest post on <blog.website.com> with your site's link in it. I published the post but he didn't pay me. I'm reaching out because I want to ask whether you will pay me or should I remove the link from the post ?
    For your reference here is the link to the post.

    I think the agency haven't paid the author and thus he is reaching out to the client directly.

    Did you order any guest posts?
