What to do when you receive an email from a generic email address (e.g. email@example.com) asking you for a review copy? You do some research and that email may or may not have a history etc (might as well be created for that purpose alone, getting free review copies). So that person may be really an affiliate regardless of the name on the email sender ..or not.
Yes, I know vendors don't require NDAs to be signed when an affiliate is asking for a review copy. I also know it's just futile to ask for a copy you don t intend to promote ( but maybe get info on products in that niche ), when one can just buy the product and ask for a refund one day later.
Any due-diligence one can do on this matter?
