I checked my email – something I now only do two or three times a week and found this email.

Hello,
Thank you very much for getting everything wrapped up so quickly but unfortunately I cannot say the same for myself.
We are having some annoying payment issues and it has caused a pretty hefty back log, as it’s a bot running payments there is a queue, Once you are first in the queue you will be paid but until then I cannot really do much.
If you need to pull the article then fair enough but can you please keep hold of it to repost as the payment will certainly come at some point.

I think as a species we are becoming more and more adept at filtering spam, and I found it strange that this would be sent to me.

Then an hour later I got this.

Hello,

I am very sorry for my previous email, I have just realised I sent the complete wrong message, the intended message is below. (if you have received this message more than once please excuse me, my email system is bugging out)

Thank you for taking the time to read my email, I am contacting you today to enquire about the possibility of collaborating on a post for your website.

Just a few quick notes to point out we are working with a client and the article would need to have a link to their site in do-follow format which we can pay you for hosting.

If you would be open to something like this or would just like some more information please let me know and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I look forward to your response.

Kind Regards

So basically it seems that they pushed the ‘Give Excuse As To Why We Aren’t Paying You’ button, before hitting the ‘Try To Get Someone To Shill For Us’ button.

So draw your own conclusions.
