Funny Email Chain for a Collection Agent

Posted in funny, open letters, stunts with tags , , , on June 9, 2009 by absurddelight

Geekologie posted a full email chain for a clever, but apparently broke iconoclast who repeatedly attempts to settle a back debt of $200+ by emailing in a drawing of a spider.

And when it isn’t accepted, he rightly demands that it be sent back to him. That’s pretty much all the progress he gets out of it. But if you enjoy reading mockery of debt collectors, click below.

Free Viagra!! Free Willy!!

An annotated photo essay. What do these photos make you think of?


So get this: Pfizer has decided to give something back to the flacid community. If you get laid off, don’t worry, you can still get laid (cue rimshot, thank you very much). Little blue pills to come with your unemployment check.

People who qualify will receive their Pfizer medicines for free for up to 12 months or until they become re-insured (whichever comes first). More than 70 Pfizer primary care medicines will be available through the program.

So, this is part generous, part smart business and part plain old drug pushing. Keep ’em hooked and it’ll bring in the bucks in the long run.

Interested? Here are the criteria:

  • Loss of employment since January 1, 2009
  • Prescribed and taking a Pfizer medicine for at least 3 months prior to becoming unemployed and enrolling in the program
  • Lack of prescription drug coverage
  • Can attest to financial hardship
