Boris, hello! I can't really tell you about this specific letter. However, a couple of years ago a letter very similar in approach went out to a lot of members on a photography web site I used.

This letter promised recognition and publication, but turned out to be a scam. Much to the inconvience of a few of those members. Don't remember excact details much, identity scam or if it was just to get money, but it wasn't so good for them. I'm just saying if no one else on here knows, you should investigate well, before giving out any personel info.

Who's Who is a scam. It's just used to collect your information for reselling to other companies and marketing to you.

Thank you Brady. I'd think it's scam, but I was not sure.
