Is there anything I should know, or be wary of, when responding to a cold-calling recruiter?

For the first time in a long time, I'm looking for contract work (software engineering). I've been in touch with a recruiter that I know from a past job, along with many other contacts, but nothing has panned out as yet. Meanwhile, I'm getting emails to my LinkedIn account from cold-calling type recruiters who presumably have found my profile via a keyword search. I'm considering responding to them, but don't know what to expect or if there's any reason to think it might be a bad idea. Anything I should know?
