Yesterday, I received a note (via my site’s contact form) from somebody/something professing to offer freelance services (logo design, video production):
Hi guys, I am a great seller on [redacted]. I can create videos and logos for you. I work with [redacted]. and they will recommend my services to you for sure. Please take a look at my gigs and place an order right now. I am the best seller and (site name redacted) has give me level 2 seller now. Just ask [redacted]. and they will recommend me to you 100. My profile is [redacted]. You will find all services there. Order now! Discount 🙂
I ignored it because of its spambot odor. And I don’t have any need for such services.
A couple of hours later I received this (from same user name):
“I send spam backlinks to your website and now I request that you order my gigs to remove them. If you do not order, I send more spam backlinks to destroy your site. You understand me?
“Please order now from [redacted] and let’s be friends.”
Uh…Let’s be friends?
Pro tip: If you’re looking for freelance work (or friendship) from me, I’d recommend taking a different approach than threatening my property. And don’t get me started on why we CAN’T be friends.
