    Hi BC, I got the EXACT same email on Saturday night – I reported it to redbubble and deleted it – I reckon they’re phishing for email addresses.

  • Do you recon?
    I think they are very genuine, and just want to be our friend ;-)

    I have a few Chinese friends and their writting is brilliant!
    I bow my head to them as trying to translate from Chinese is an absolute nightmare.
