I got the message below.  This was my response:

"You have to be kidding.  This was obviously automated and you don't 
have a clue.  It was a single email message from 5 years ago where one 
of our users recommended the site."

"That said, I've removed the offending link.  I will also forward your 
message to our mailing list so they know not to visit your site -- ever."

The website names below have been adjusted so we don't bother them 
again.  Just remove -nospam-.

Website Owner

Dear Website Owner:

We have discovered that companies we hired to help promote our website, 
www.inktechnologies.com, have used a variety of questionable techniques 
to secure links to our website. These links were placed purely for SEO 
purposes, with the sole intention of manipulating search rankings.

It appears that there may be links of this type that have been placed on 
your site.

The presence of these links is harmful to our site's good standing with 
search engines, and unfortunately, retaining them may also be 
potentially harmful to your own website's reputation.

We would ask that you please remove any links on your site that link to 
inktech-nospam-nologies.com or www.inktech-nospam-nologies.com.

So far as we are aware, there are (or have been) links at these URLs:

We would greatly appreciate your help with resolving this problem.

You can also let us know once the links to inktechnologies.com and 
www.inktechnologies.com have been removed either by return email, or 
using the link below.

If you need any more information from us, please email me and I will be 
happy to assist.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you and do appreciate 
your help.
