I received an email from a Grant Langston with the subject : A NEW PROJECT WEDDING OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUR BUSINESS

The email then read:

Hi,



Project Wedding is giving select vendors a unique promotional opportunity. Its completely free and will give you a rare ability to share your voice and vision with customers in your market.



Project Wedding is the third largest wedding network in the country. We have over 500,000 visitors a month from all over the US brides looking for guidance on which wedding vendors to use.



For a limited time were creating localized articles - articles that are designed to be the definitive word on your category in your city. For example,



Wedding Photography in Chicago Unique Trends and Style

Wedding Flowers in Miami A Local Guide

New York Wedding Venues Top 10 Places for Your Big Day



To make these articles as accurate and helpful as possible were looking for local vendors to be the author of each article. You can be that local resource, become the definitive word on your category, AND give your business free promotion and traffic. Dont worry - you dont have to actually write the article. Heres how it works:



· We send you a one-page form. All we need is your suggestions, no real writing required.

· If youre feeling artistic and would like to write a real article, well happily accept that as well. 700 word max.

· Depending on your subject we may request some photos that go with your suggestions.

· We create the article, list you as the source, mention your business in the article copy, link back to your business website, and promote the article on our site.

· Your article will increase the chances that brides searching for local services on Google will see your business



We have no plans to ever take these articles down, and this is an easy way to be cited in Google as one of the foundational sources for your town.



Since these slots are first come first serve, please reply to this email now. Let us know that youre willing to take advantage of this unique opportunity and well set the process in motion.

It seems to me like it might be legitimate. They didn't ask for any money. Scammers always want you to cash checks and wire the money back to them.

You might try googling his name or his company and getting more information.

I would do some research on this company. If they're as big as they claim, there will be something on the net about them. If there is nothing out there in internet land, then I would pass on it

That seems legit. But of course, you have to decide!
