I opened my email and this was at the top of the list, now bear in mind the nofile.html is exactly what it soundslike, it is a custom 404 file. It still tickles me
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> I checked your website http://rogues-gallery.com/nofile.html and I believe it is compatible with mine, and I think it would be great to make a link exchange. My name is Paul Cabay and this is my site: www.utyx.com/classical-music.
What do you say? If the answer is yes then all you have to do is to visit my online submission form http://www.utyx.com/classical-music/form.html and introduce your data there and your link will be up on my site in a few hours.
And this is my linking information :
Title: Classical-music Resources
Description: classical-music related news, books and web resources
or just cut & paste this HTML

I got 2 (almost) identical emails today, thought the first one might be legit, but then I saw the second one, and they both went into the trash.

The same guy wrote to three of my websites today with similar requests.

I got two as well, for a deeplink in both the ODP and Zeal/Looksmart. I guess that one or both of those directories is being mined for information.

Ditto. Glad to see that I was right to assume it was not legit!

Yep. I seem to get similar messages every few weeks. They start to smell fishy when the site requesting the link is a direct competitor.
I'm pretty sure they must send out a bot to find sites compatible with theirs, but a link from them would most likely add little to my site in the eyes of my visitors as well as Googlebot.
No thanks, I'll pass...
