I received this email recently. I never created an account for dwolla, I assume Ben Milne is using all of the contact emails from customers of eD to try to grow his dwolla company. The email reeks of a scam attempt (I have no friend named Erica, well actually I do but it's spelled with a K) and seems like the company is getting pretty desperate. I received another email similar to this one the next day. Below is the first email:
Your friend Erica used TryDwolla.com to send you money.
If you have never created a Dwolla account, you will receive a separate email with the steps to claim your money on Dwolla, a new payment network. If you're an existing Dwolla user, you will receive the standard email and text notifications that you've received money.
As a promotion, one out of every 100 people that receive money on TryDwolla.com will be rewarded with $50.
You can only receive money once on TryDwolla.com, but we encourage you to send a #moneybomb to all of your friends.
Uh, yeah... I really want to create an account and use a payment method that was founded by a former owner of a company that has ripped off countless numbers of customers. Anywone else getting these emails from dwolla?
