Location: The state of confusion; I just use Wyoming for mail.
I just got an email offering 5 free cups of coffee from Starbucks. It is a fraud. DO not click the link to get the coupon. Since I run MBAM Pro and MBAE I am a bit more liberal about clicking links. MBAM Pro will not allow the site to open at all.

I knew that it was a fraud before even clicking but wanted to see what it said. First off I can't stand Starbucks coffee so would not be in any sort of 'club' type thing they may have to warrant such an offer. I mean seriously... they are not going to offer 5 cups of coffee to everyone.

Here is the body of the email"

That's sneaky, I'll stick with my coffee at home, I don't even know whether we have Starbucks over here. I can see where people who do use them might be fooled though.
