Thanks for the info.

There is something amiss with their signup! After putting all the details, the confirmation email never comes! The site says to click on the link (sent in the email) to confirm your coin! No email came even after hours & with second email id as well! Not sure without the confirmation email (as stated on their website)if the freebie is assured or genuine! ??? ::)

Same for me. No confirmation email. They suggest contacting them if you don't get the email, so I did. They haven't responded to that either.

Presumably I will now be subjected to a barrage of spam.  ::)

They send the confirmation emails out once every 24 hours so no worries. In the confirmation email there is no link (there were technical problems and they have omitted that part). I signed up yesterday and received the confirmation email this morning.

Unless you ticked the box for emails, they don't send any spam.

I applied for mine about 10 minutes after you posted here. Still no email to confirm, nor to answer my enquiry (spam folders duly checked etc).

I would be surprised if this was anything more than an email harvesting exercise.

Indeed. Time will tell, and I would be delighted if my cynicism was misplaced.  :)

I finally got the confirmation email now. There were no links to click to confirm. But a laundry list of coins on offer to buy separately if one wants.

Thanks Eurocoin for this freebie link. Eagerly waiting for the coin to turn up now :)

I am delighted that my cynicism was misplaced. I have an email.  ;D

Now I suspect that they just got overwhelmed.

I'm getting plenty of junk email from them, but no sign of any coin yet.  ::)

They have so far sent 2 emails of their own company for which you have subscribed yourself (and are also allowed to unsubscribe). They are currently awaiting new stock from Tower Mint.

I have contacted the manager and founder of Wopa-plus who has informed me that 600 coins were send out today. Another 2,000 pieces will be sent out this week and they expect that all remaining coins will have been posted by the end of next week. An official statement on this will follow tomorrow.
