Earlier this week, Joe published a few emails from I’ve Tried That readers demanding that we refund them the money they lost to a scam. Unluckily for them, we don’t hand out free money. We thought that by publicizing these emails, we might see a decrease in refund demands. However, shortly after submitting that post, we’ve received quite possibly the least thought out email in the history of the Internet.
The Email that Takes the Cake
I want this what ever it is cancelled I did not ordered.
I want a full refund of 99.99 back immediately or I will report you to Better Buisness Bureau.
You have my card no but, I will give it to you again.
[SHE THEN PROCEEDED TO ENTER IN HER CREDIT CARD INFORMATION]
any question you can callme Pamela xxx@Embarqmail.com
xxx-xxx-2088 Thankyou Pamela
You are reading that correctly. Old Pamela thought it would be a good idea to give me her full name, phone number, email address, and her credit card information! She sent this email to a complete stranger online, then has the audacity to wonder why money has been removed from her account. Luckily for her, I’m not an identity thief, but I can’t imagine how many similar emails she sent out to other random sites.
It doesn’t end here though. We’ve received two more emails from her demanding that we send her money or else she’ll get her lawyer involved. She has been ignoring my replies including the one where I suggested she get a new credit card immediately. I’ve run out of helpful suggestions for her and I’m actually looking forward to talking with her lawyer at this point. I plan on leading off the conversation demanding that he repay me the money I spent on a sub-par dinner I had last night. I’ll let you know how it works out.
