From an internet search I have identified that their appears to be a legitimate business named Portman's in Savannah Georgia
albeit they may not be aware yet that someone that may not be authorized to do so is using their business name via a post office box in Savannah GA and that the purported legitimate business may not necessarily be involved with this apparent scam with mailing originating from Canada (scammers has used other US and Canada addresses previously) --
Further, I called the phone number (780) 604-3854
and some youing voice female answered the phone as, "Gateway Financiers," When I asked, she said her name was "Elaine." I hung up and made no further inquiry.
I called The Oregonian (Portland Oregon major newspaper)
to alert them to this latest scam. I also called the local office of the FBI to discuss the matter with them as well as having earlier called the fraud department of Bank of America to discuss this issue as well as to alert them on the matter in detail.
