Do you see what I see?
We all know we do not receive lawful bills etc. Postal money orders are lawful money. Solicitors are soliciting unlawfully unless the above notice is printed on there "bills" that resemble true bills.
Send them a postal money order in the amount requested wait for a return. I suspect they will not redeem it(evidence of consideration). Follow up with reference to this proper notice info and wait for a reply. Nothing. Demand return of funds previously given in error. Nothing.....Send all appropriate proof to post master and see where it goes. My line of thinking. Dont stop sending the postal money orders in the amount demanded monthly. Cancel money orders if not redeemed by next monthly payment is due. Voila evidence of refusal of payment.
The one dollar money order is showing your hand from the outset but maybe not i suspect some know not what they do.
I like the poker face approach(postal money order in full amount) followed by the full house(legislation that binds them). Then a give me back or send to treasurer (fraud. right your wrong or else) Then off to post master.
Was thinking of opening PO box to use as address for this.
......Sledge Hammer....... do do
Thanks Boris you lead me to this.......Thank God for Boris....hahaha
Kingdom of Heaven here we come!
