Just ran across a letter from this outfit with a Katy, TX address. I received a form letter with just my address (no company name) in Feb 2015 which states "Our records indicate that you may have executed an oil and gas lease that we at Percheron Energy LLC were contracted to obtain. We are writing to inform you that on January 15, 2015, a computer was stolen from one of our offices that we believe contained your personal information, including your name, social security number, address, and telephone number. As a conscientious member of the oil and gas industry, we take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard all sensitive and confidential information provided to us, and we are coordinating with law enforcement to investigate this incident."
The letter went on to encourage me to enroll in protection services for their company by going to the site www.protectmyid.com/redeem and the letter went on to state "We hope you will take full advantage of the resources we have provided at no cost to you." I never pursued it.
I have never received any income from this outfit so it appeared from my end to be a scam. Did anyone else receive such a letter and if so, what action did you take?
