Always confirm purchases, and politely refuse support if they can’t verify. It’s your policy to define.

Yep, nothing wrong with that. I have somebody sending me emails claiming to have bought my theme and asking if I can log in to their admin and install a fresh copy from my pc, but everytime I ask for their purchase code they disappear for 3 days. I don’t think he even has a TF account.

I’ve found that a good diplomatic approach is to request that they “kindly contact me via my contact form from the account you used to purchase the product in order to receive support.”

I’ve actually had several instances where the buyer really did purchase from another account and was logged into the wrong one when they posted – or it is a developer working on a project where the client purchased the product. This way you haven’t accused legitimate buyers of stealing while still refusing to support those who haven’t purchased the product. :)
