Has anyone ever heard of newbielink:http://vectoriel.com [nonactive] ? I was sent a message via facebook asking if I would like to sign up as a contributor. Did some searching, but really couldn't find anything about them. Looks like they are a french company.

I got an email from them as well. They found me from HAI. It looks like a nice enough site. I did find their pricing a little confusing though.

Now I realised how they found me as well: from my personal web site, which I published on most microstock sites.
So nothing suspicious there: they used publicly available data; but they probably visited my site and did a manual search for my email address - which is protected with a javascript code and should not be found by bots: interesting (positively) that they did such a targeted advertising

Looks like they are brand new, do a search for "vector" then order by downloads, looks like there's only a couple of files that have had any sales yet.
I wish them the best, but there's no way I've got the time to support any new sites with the ever increasing work:returns ratio in microstock  :(

Not sure if they have FTP. If they have - and if they don't require any additional work to put pictures online - no problem for me adding one more site to Lightburner. If they don't, no way: I want to let them know from the start that we've got no time to lose.

Looks like one person's work. Another obvious start-up with little to recommend it apart from the standard pitch, "we like your work..." Good luck to anybody trying to break into this business but how is this one different from all the rest of the wrecks along the road? Until it earns its way to the middle tier I'll pass.
