Has anyone else had an e-mail from stock photo spot. I was caught out by them in my early days of uploading (when I sent my images to anyone who would take them) and after 3 or 4 months I stopped submiting to them because they never paid out or answered my e-mails.

Today out of the blue I received an e-mail apologising for non payment and asking for my paypal e-mail address so they can pay the outstanding balance. It sounds a bit dodge to me but I cant see what can go wrong should I trust them?

I have to agree. The name sounds very familiar.
Is this the site that had so many photographers getting stung and even had several european forums with photographers warning about them?
like, finding some photos with notes to everyone not to buy their photos because the site did not reply to email to delete their photos?

If this is the same site, I would be careful to be tempted in giving them your Paypal.
I would forget about the money. It will cost you a lot more than they "promise" to repay you.

Check the search engines with their name as keyword.
Maybe then you can confirm if this is the same people.

I woulld approach with some trepidation.

Question for you - Is there not an area on this site that has asked you to put in your PP info (email address) for payment? If you have already input the info on your profille on the site, I would tell whoever is writing you to get the info off the site.

BTW, just search Stockphotospot Scam on Goog and you will find tons of stuff.
