Stupid emails I have received: Someone thinks I am Carphone Warehouse

Over the years I have received some pretty stupid emails from some pretty stupid people. Last night I received one of the best yet, from someone who presumably Googled ‘Carphone Warehouse Complaints’ and found MrDaz.com – then decided to fill in my contact form believing she was contacting Carphone Warehouse. Like this site looks remotely like Carphone Warehouse.

When people are ready to fill their details into the first form they find on the Internet, is it any wonder ID theft and cyber crimes are so rife? Is it any wonder billions of pounds are lost each year in the UK by morons to Internet tricksters? It’s not like the fraudsters even need to be clever or devious about it, the idiots come to them – like shooting fish and all that. Anyway, here’s this idiots email – meant for Carphone Warehouse. Pass it on somebody.

Hi,

My Daughter has worked for car-phone warehouse for some years, she has left to go to college to become a midwife, and she needs her P45 from yourselves, she has phone HR, been into her store on many occasions and generally been given the run around as to where her P45 is this has been going on for nine weeks since she left.

she has just received a A4 piece of paper with a list of earning and such! which mean nothing to anyone this is not a legal P45 and you’s as a company have delayed my Daughter from getting her benefits that she is entitled to, for being such a big company we find it hard to believe that you could treat your former employees in such a way.

I trust that now the matter has been brought to your attention it will now be dealt with in a timely manner, which should have been the case nine weeks ago, we feel that because you’s have taken so long, as a company should pay some compensation to my Daughter for all the hassle and heart ache of trying to live on a mere £40.00 a week with a small child. the store in Washington the galleries Tyne and wear.
