I was thinking anybody on Stack Overflow might be interested in the blog post Samsung agency is buying off StackOverflow users.
How can the Stack Overflow community defend itself from such spam attempts?

In this case, we saw the post and reached out directly to Samsung (not the agency) and they are taking steps to make sure this does not happen again. There's no need to contact us about this issue anymore unless you receive a new request after Aug1, 2013. But if you receive something like this in the future, please do reach out to Stack Exchange (the company) via https://stackoverflow.com/contact.
Thanks to the folks who reached out to us last night, I contacted the parties involved.
If you got one of these sketchy offers, you should have received an additional communication this morning telling you to ignore it.
The agency involved apologized and provided us the info we need to reasonably ensure that they have corrected it.
No need to contact us unless you receive any NEW requests to post spam.
