As if the recession wasn’t enough, some people think it’s necessary to pressure us users more with choices upon choices on how to “kindly” give our money to them.

People please, don’t even think of replying or clicking the link inside those emails, except if you think donating your money to those scoundrels is a good thing, then please do. Here are the content of the emails for your reference :
