Below was a section to detach and send back in an envelope provided (address on the return envelope reads: Croft Research Corporation, P.O. Box 2647, 6401 DC Heerlen, The Netherlands. I was asked to check the first box on the form that read: I here by provide Authorization and Identity Confirmation by return this form within 10 days. then
I was then asked to check a second box that read: I have enclosed a processing fee of $25 payable by cash, check or money order to CRC
Then it read: Please sign your full legal name and date below:
FORM # 11097A

This is a scam and I did not send any money for the processing fee, however I checked on line first thing and found out this was a scam, I am reporting it so other people do not get scammed by this. I admit it sounds pretty good at first but when they asked for a processing fee and it came from the Netherlands, come on, it had scam written all over it.  Also there are miss spelled words on it, We all would love a check for this amount, but when it sounds to good to be true it usually is not true. Hope this has helped many other people receiving the same letter in the mail.
