Hi,
Sorry I write you via comments. But I could not find contact e-mail or feedback form on your site. We are looking for new advertisement platforms and we are interested in your site bpmsg.com. Is it possible to place banner on your site on a fee basis?
Please, contact  us at e-mail.
Best regards,
Samuel Charles

After my reply, the guy told me:

Hello,
Thanks for reply to our proposal!
I represent Guraci Agency. At the moment we are preparing an advertising campaign for Lacoste Company (it is a French company producing clothes, footwear, perfumery etc.) We already have designed banners for the campaign, they are the following sizes: 160×600, 240×400, 300×250, 336×280, 468×60, 728×90.
What can be your price for one banner (banner should appear at ALL pages of your site) of abovementioned sizes (please specify the place for the banner – top, bottom, left, right)? Please mention a normal link for banner, without javascript code and set prices in US dollars per month.

Best regards,
Samuel Charles.

In the next e-mail they offered a monthly flat rate for placing the banner, even not asking how much traffic my site has. Being cautious,  I found out from other blogs that they try to let you install a WordPress Plugin and might place malcious code later. Don’t waste your time.

Be alert!

See for example further information in this blog.
