No we won’t, but that’s what I’m tempted to say every time Coffeesh0p gets an email asking this same ridiculous question – we get asked if we’re legitimate quite frequently, as it happens. It makes you wonder what’s going on in the minds of these people. If we’re legitimate, of course we’ll reply with a “Yes”. If we plan on stealing your money, we’re even more likely to say “Yes”!
Perhaps they’re the technophobe set of society, afraid to enter any details in case of fraud or identity theft. If that’s the case, maybe they also assume that I’m under oath when answering emails, because no one would ever reply with “Ok, you caught us out! We’re a scam”. They genuinely expect a full spectrum of honest replies.
If these people don’t trust me with their money, but are willing to take what I say as fact, maybe slapping a big button on the homepage saying “WE WON’T STEAL YOUR MONEY” will make people think twice before emailing us.
Actually, in future, I think I’ll just link them to the post….
