Subject: Bitcointalk Banners

Hello, we are opening two slots 728x90 for advertising in Bitcointalk.org

Totally 2 banners in rotation and both of them are placed

Banner size - 728x90, displayed in all forum pages.

Price per one slot is 0.7 BTC per month. 2 slots together will cost 1.2 BTC

If you want 2 banners, they can be different style, but must have same link.

Best Regards
--------------------end-----------------------

To the best of my knowledge theymos sells ads on the forum via auction...

This email was sent to an email addy I registered for a business in a directory for accepting bitcoins.  So scammers are harvesting info via "bitcoin accepted here" business directories and are attempting to scam.
