Looks like you weren't alone, Gordon  http://www.scambook.com/company/view/82992/SRC-po-box-12956-kansas-city-ks-66112-2956-usa
I hope the guy responsible has more luck with his (honest?) day-job. As a scammer he is hopeless!

Lee Evans said it best. He said that when you get junk mail you should take a crap in the envelope and send it back with a message reading 'you send me your s*** and I will send you some of mine!'

Or load it with the days junk mail.  I am sure that they would be pleased to know the forthcoming bargains from Lidl and the great offers from the local curry house.
