This one just appeared: paid help for recovering deleted files after server reinstall , where the asker proposes to pay for help

This has been already discussed in the Meta Stack Overflow and seems that the consensus is that this is not allowed, e.g.

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/25615/offering-actual-money-as-a-bounty http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/57850/pay-money-to-so-for-quick-support

How to behave in this situation?

Just to make sure, you can treat Meta Stack Overflow as Global-Meta, because at the moment it is. Whenever you find a consensus there, you can be sure that it went at least through the hands of one developer. –  Bobby May 29 '12 at 18:29
    
@Bobby I thought so but was unsure. –  Renan May 29 '12 at 21:25

Flag them for moderator attention. The Stack Overflow consensus is applicable here as well, and these should be closed promptly.
