    what is the point of all the e mails you send as I recently ordered 3 x 50p c0ins for my grandchildren and today I had a letter to say that you are unable to accept my order as you already have an active account at this address. The letter was addressed to mrs d hill and I am b hill but there is no other female at my address. So your e mails are a waste of time so please take me off your mailing list.
