I was pretty amused to see this in the ol’ inbox:

If you were a really good SEO consultant, you’d just pump up your own results for “SEO consultant” instead of spamming me and offering to (presumably) spam mine.
It looks like he’s trawling for the easy pickings: people who have invested literally no time in promoting older domains.
Older domains, you say? Those could be useful for an SEO consultant, if they linked to something else. Those older pages get higher rank in the search engines.
I bet the “contract” for these services involves linking back to this SEO consultant’s homepage.
Then the only question is, “Who’s getting the SEO out of this deal?” The SEO consultant’s client, or the SEO consultant? Probably the latter, but the former’s going to write the check.
Another reason to never, ever deal with spammers and those who hire them.
