I have another profile at Hubpages from where I write. I have just 5 Hubs there. Now what I want to ask is that I received a mail from someone who says that some of his client companies are interested in advertising on Hubpages through my Hubs. He says that he will give me unique high quality content and he just needs a backlink to the company site. Moreover he will pay me $10 per article.
This sounds very fishy but then I think what is wrong in trying it? Obviously I will see the content before posting it whether it is copied or not, it not adult and everything. So do you think there is any way this could be a trap?
I've been approached by someone similar - check that they are looking at your articles - when I asked them they actually thought I owned Hubpages and were looking at other people's articles.
The best option is to give them Hubpages contact information if they are not interested in your unique content...
If the payment is on a bank transfer? They will need all your personal info to make the transaction. You could have an empty account instead of a payment.
@RB-Payment is through Paypal
@SimeyC- They specifically asked me to post on my Hubpages profile account.
I'd follow up with Hubpages just to make sure it doesn't infringe their TOS...putting a link into your profile that isn't specific to your profile (unless all your articles are in the same genre) sounds like it may break the TOS...
Simey- Though they mentioned "profile" but the context was publishing the article as a Hub and not in profile. They meant my Hubpages account. And as 1 related promotional link is allowed in our Hubs I don't see how will I break any TOS.
However I am more worried about any other fraud or tricking than just the disabling of my Hub account or unpublishing of my Hub

I know I'm starting another lost traffic thread, (geesh, enough already), but...Here's why. As it has been noted, HP has suffered, site-wide - all of us - even the touted success stories, traffic loss due to Google's...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

Is it true that Google is inundated by billions of articles that it's suffering from a system overload, and unable to give quality attention to new and better written articles? Just imagine, the poor Google crawler had...
