This is an blatant scam. Apart from “search engine submission” this scammer doesn’t even bother to explain why he (or she) is asking for money. The only email address given is a gmail address – no proper business contact. I’m told that once I’ve submitted the form by fax they “will send you instructions on how to make a payment by credit card”. I’m sure they will!!!
If you own any domains, ignore this scammer. There is no need to submit your site to search engines – Google, Bing and all the major search engines will find your site for themselves.
Ignore this blatant scammer.
