One of the first flags to watch for is did they contact you first? Whether by e-mail or a telemarketer, it is best to very cautious when dealing with anyone, or any firm, soliciting their services. Another red flag to watch for is "guaranteed rankings". If they tell you they can guarantee the ranking of your site or guarantee "the top ten in search results," beware. The guarantee alone should be sufficient to warn you as no one can make that kind of guarantee. This is especially true if they tell that they can do it without making any changes to your site.
One thing you should do is check them out to verify their legitimacy and services. You can do this through forums such as The Warrior Forum and WHOIS. If they operate under multiple aliases, or have fake info in their WHOIS, it is best to walk away. You can look in other forums and articles related to the subject. If in the forums, ask questions and wait for the answers. A timely warning here can save you thousands down the road.
