Mesothelioma Link Builder Phoney

I was skeptical of an email asking for a lung cancer link

A little email exchange I'd like to share.


I emailed you last week and unfortunately I haven't heard back yet. My name is Virgil Anderson. I came across your website and thought you might be interested in my message.

I was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, which is a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. From automotive to demolition work, I’ve had many jobs in my life that contributed to my exposure. On some jobs, the air was so thick with debris and asbestos you could taste it in your mouth.

When I was diagnosed with mesothelioma I needed immediate medical attention. I found a few websites on the internet that are supposed to help people with my type of cancer but nobody got back to me.

Then I found Even though I contacted them on a Sunday one of their patient advocates gave me a call back within minutes. They gave me a great deal of helpful information on doctors and resources available to me.

As a result of their website I am now being treated at the National Cancer Institute and the patient advocates have even provided me with financial assistance so I could afford a place to live during my cancer treatments. If I had not reached out to this website I would likely be homeless and more importantly in hospice waiting to die. These people gave me my only chance at survival.

I noticed you posted a cancer-related link on your website. Perhaps some of your website visitors could use the help of The website is filled with information on mesothelioma treatments and doctors, asbestos trust funds for victims, and a lot more. They also sponsor The American Cancer Society, the MD Cancer Center, and the Make a Wish Foundation.

If it’s not too much trouble, could you help spread the good work they’re doing by posting a link to on your website?

Please let me know what you think when you get a chance. Thanks very much for your time.

Am I supposed to believe this is true?

Hi Rob, Yes it is true. Let me know if you have any questions.

When I first stared my website in 1998, mesothelioma was the #1 most valuable keyword on the entire internet. That's because there was so much money to be made by lawyers with asbestos claims.



Yes lawyers do make money from these cases but they also provide much needed help to asbestos my case I was able to receive treatment at the National Cancer Institute and have money to pay for my medical expenses, transportation and living expenses because of the help I received from


Give me a call 916 606-XXXX.



Unfortunately I cannot take personal calls at the moment. I was just wondering if you would be willing to share a link to on your website. I believe mesothelioma was a valuable keyword and I'm sure it still is. Asbestos was highly used in different materials in the auto industry, construction, navy ships, electrical industry, etc. and since asbestos diseases like mesothelioma usually don’t show up until many years later, more and more people are now telling their stories.

My hope is to spread awareness and also help others who are in need of assistance. They have personally helped me tremendously.

Let me know if you reconsider, if not, I understand.

Warm Regards,


Just a quick call and I'll post a link immediately.

He never wrote back.

I'm not sure if he was unable to call, because he was writing from prison or Guam or something, or if he just didn't want to talk with someone like me who was only interested in unravelling his story.

Does anyone know what's up with these fake link requests? Obviously someone is trying to build a farm of inbound links with emails like these, but I'm trying to figure out the name of the service.
