Call For Action Alert: Sexually Explicit Mail Fraud Targets Local Doctors

By  | 

A disturbing prank that has been spreading across the nation has targeted several Southern Colorado women.

Sexually explicit letters are being sent to doctors using a return address belonging to a certified CPR trainer in the Springs.

Only 11 News spoke to Cindy Slater, the woman who the letters are impersonating.

"Dear Doctor, We've been watching you and we love what we see. You're hot, you're sexy," reads the opening line to these letters, made to appear like they were sent from Slater's address.

"I did not send this letter, I don't know who this person is, he's trying to ruin my reputation," said Slater.

She works for SAV-A-LIFE CPR training and has trained doctors in the Colorado Springs area for 20 years.

At least eight of those doctors received these bogus letters impersonated Slater and impersonating the president of the American Safety and Health Institute.

"I am a black male, 49, single with no kids. I am lonely and frustrated and I am looking for a mate," said the letter with an attached photo of the real ASHI director.

"I felt very sorry for Cindy, I didn't really read the letter all the way because it was just terrible," said Debbie Adams.

Adams' medical practice was one of the unlucky recipients of these letters, but she knew it was fake right away.

"I don't believe that it's a personal attack on me, I believe it might be a personal attack on the training agency that I work through (ASHI)," said Slater.

ASHI released a statement last month commenting on the increase in letters in New York; the letters carrying Slater's address are the first reported incident in the Colorado Springs area.

Through the ASHI investigation, they say the letters usually come in the mail in a plain white envelope with a plain white label, usually with an upside down flag stamp with a New York postmark.

If you receive these letters, officials recommend you to bring them to your post office and file a fraud complaint.
