The new face of spam

Many months back, I got an offer from someone to pay me for posting spam. Today, I receive this email. If it’s not spam, then it’s from a really stupid writer that failed to read my blog (and you know what happens to those people!):

Hi Jon,

I recently started writing work for RN Central as a content writer. I would like to write a guest post related to medical/nursing/healthcare on your site if you’re interested in accepting such a post. If you are interested, please let me know and I can send you an article for you to look over.

The Deal:

I will write a good, useful posts/articles on medical/nursing/healthcare specifically for your website/blog, free of cost. But I will need a by-line to build up my writing career. In addition, there will be a link to the RN Central site in the by-line. So, it will help all parties concerned.

Sample posts written by me:

http://www.rncentral.com/nursing-library/careplans/how-to-get-cheaper-healthcare-without-insurance

http://www.rncentral.com/nursing-library/careplans/20-surprising-ways-wal-mart-clinics-affect-us-healthcare

Both articles were widely read and received numerous links from other bloggers.

Thanks for your time and I am looking forward to your reply.

Thanks,
Heather Johnson

It has evolved!

    Did you manage to LART this bloke?

    LARTing seems too nice. I’m in favour of forcing this person to listen to David Hasselshoff music for 72 days straight. :)
