"typically you receive $4 for every story"

I got this email today. Obviously not from a native English speaker. Fits in the category of too good to be true (at least the $4 per story just to post it). What's the angle? Are they going to need my bank account number to pay me? Legitimate advertising? Anyone have any ideas?

I just googled the domain name from the email. It goes to a website with lots of hearts and flowers and romantic - but not pornographic - links. Not going to send people there for free though. :)

  1. What a deal, Steve! Maybe you and I could team up and use the USA vs Vic Kohring blog, which is just sitting there. We could split the money three ways with Vic. Then he'd be able to afford cheeseburgers in jail.
