I received the following email from my old insurance broker. To protect their identity, the ONLY thing I changed in the email is the company’s name. I changed it to “Dumbass” instead of their actual name.Otherwise, this is the exact email they sent me.
My response is below…

Now….Can we ask a favor? Referrals are our best source of new business. We would greatly appreciate it if you could spread the word of how Dumbass has customized a solution for your insurance needs and how we can do the same for your friends, family, and co-workers.

As an individual, since you won’t even take the time to put my name in your marketing emails or filter out email addresses with which you don’t have names, how can I be sure that you’ll take the time to serve my insurance needs?
I prefer to stick with organizations who take the time to ensure that their customers needs are met, and don’t try to take shortcuts in an effort to earn a quick buck instead of doing the right thing.
Please remove me from your mailing list. Thank you.
