    I just saw that there's a thread specifically for scams. Sorry I posted in the wrong section.

    I just received an email from a certain Martin Dumont, asking me if he can rent an ad space on my site.

    Now, it was a personal blog and I just launched it. So I was suspicious at first. Also, the letter itself was very suspicious. Here's the content of the letter:


    I found out that you'll be asked to download and install a Wordpress plugin. Even though I never tried downloading the plugin, I'm 100% sure that it's bad news.

    So I'm sending this as a warning to anyone on this forum, especially Wordpress users. Hopefully, this post will also show up to anyone who's smart enough to Google PAKBB Agency first before replying.

    Oh, and his IP is showing that he's from Ukraine.

    If you are receiving an upfront payment for the banner space, you could think about it. I wouldn't give a damn if he say's its PPC.

    LOL! Ooops! I forgot to take it out. It's a personal blog so I'm not earning money from it. That's why I quickly thought that it's a scam. He won't get anything out of my blog since there's not much visitors.
