I received a letter similar to what has already been posted on the net - only the "dates of luck" and my name are different from the rest - I guess Mail Merge works wonders - I am including an excerpt followed by my own comment:
NOW YOU MUST TAKE THE FIRST STEP TO MASTERING YOUR FATE - REQUEST "THE SECRET REALM OF YOUR PERSONAL POWER" IMMEDIATELY!

I am sure that "The Secret Realm of Your Personal Power" will give you the breakthrough you need to open your life to true happiness and success, but if at any time, for any reason you feel that "The Secret Realm of Your Personal Power" has not helped you become the charismatic, influential person you wish to become, just send Wendy a note, and you will receive an immediate refund, including the shipping and handling...with no explanation necessary.

How can these people prey on the misfortunes of others? Hit people when they are at a low ebb in their lives? How many people have actually fallen for this? I could see some desperate person actually feeling worried about not replying - the psychological ploy at work here is that if one does not respond - one's life will get worse. This amounts to a scare tactic, strong arming, black mail - use whatever words you want. It is emotional blackmail at the very least. People in need will feel that the only "support" they have will go away if they do not buy into the "program."
And when someone does respond and things don't work out, the perpetrators can go back to the original report and say we told you initially that " you are surrounded by negative waves which could not only spoil your relationships with others but also ruin your chances of success in finances. That would explain the contrast between the strong Luck Potential within you and the life you are living. Indeed, you should be living a life of success and happiness without any worries, surrounded by sincere friends..Unless we fight together against that negative energy, you may never be able to take advantage of the Luck that comes your way. It is time to free you from this bad influence!"
We have done our part, but you have not done yours, you have not acted carefully enough, not listened well enough, somehow they will turn it back on the victim
This scam needs to be stopped.
