Default Bark.com??

Anybody worked with them? They keep sending me emails about projects, but they seem low budget and I wonder if they are even legit. Thanks.

Here's a sample message.

Everything about it reeks of scam. And even if it was legit, it sounds like it would pay less than a hundred bucks.
