Twice, now, I’ve gotten what appear to be fraudulent offers to write a ‘guest’ post for this blog.
The first one, I just declined politely. Nothing to indicate it was some sort of scam. Two links to articles as ‘examples’ of the writing. Neither article seemed even remotely appropriate to this blog.
The second one, though, came from a different email address, used a different name, but used one of the same articles as an example. Hmm.
All three articles where on the same website. The website purports to be a search engine for finding photography schools.
I’ve no idea of what the scam is. It might be as simple as someone trying to drive traffic to this site; it might be as nefarious trying to drive traffic to a site that hosts some malicious crud. Whatever it is, it’s darn weird.
Bleh. If you have a photo blog, watch out for scams, I guess. There’s not a lot to a blog like this one, but apparently it’s enough to attract the attention of less than honest people.
