Via the USPS. Which is okay with me; I can operate either way. Especially when they include a postage paid envelope ;-)
First, a little background: I received via mail an offer -- a PRE-APPROVED OFFER -- for a $10,000 'credit card' with an APR of 5%, from Union Workers Credit Services. In the "offer", they threw around references to Visa, Mastercard, etc. And they suggested that my one-time acceptance "fee" of $37 would be fully refunded me with my first purchase. From a catalogue. But first, I had to accept their terms by sending them a check or money order for $37.
The same *warning buzzer* that goes off in my head every time I read a scam email was sounding with the same urgency now.
In this case, it was only the fact that I'd left the tea to boil a tad too long. After disconnecting the smoke detectors and airing out the room to improve visibility, I went back to my perusal with a little online research.
The Better Business Bureau rates this outfit an "F", as well as non-responsive to their inquiries. Ripoff Report online shows over 600 complaints about them (the BBB listed over 450).
Oh yeah...this was so *game on*.
The rewrite was a little different; I couldn't scan in the original document and then cut/paste it for the edit; I had to remake the document in my own desired format.
Here is what they received back from me in their postage paid envelope. *WARNING: words I rarely use or allow on this blog were used aplenty in the edit*:

At any rate, I am glad to see that in the age of dire straits for the USPS, scammers are doing their part to help...
