Default [Q] Anyone else getting private-message spammed to review products?

In the last week, I've gotten two XDA private messages out of the blue from separate posters who both registered in the last couple weeks, neither one has any posts, and both are asking me if I want to receive a free product if I promise to review it.
One was a cheap looking case and the other was a typical looking car dock.
Neither member gave their name or company details. Just gave me a link to see the product they wanted me to review.

I think it's a little hinky. Anyone else?
