  1. I received the same letter.  I did not wire the money because I have doubt that EPTR really has a location in a country such as Poland, if you can call it a country.  The quality of paper and ink used in this letter doed not look like from a civilzed world either.  It is pitiful these scammers from Poland cannot scam people in a professional way.  This country really has a long way to become civilized.
