Dear Alex Watts I bought some United States Oil & Gas Co 'Reg

Resolved Question:

Dear Alex Watts
I bought some United States Oil & Gas Co 'Reg S' shares in a boiler room scam some years ago. I have recently received an offer to get compensation from a legal firm handling the liquidation process of the company. the amount offered seems to be ridiculous. They sent me a contract to sign, the contract does not ask for any up front monies but does ask for my bank details which I am not prepared to give them so I refused to sign the contract sent to me.
Below is their last Email response to me. Any comments/advice you could offer would be much appreciated. I think it is another scam!! Thanks P Fitton
Dear Mr. Peter Fitton,
In view of the fact that you have elected not to pursue the
compensation package available to shareholders, I write to advise that
we are required to publish a public notice to that effect in a widely
circulated newspaper. All e-mails and telephone conversations are noted
to go alongside the post and will be kept on your case file. You will
have the opportunity to respond to the publication for a further 14 days
after print date, and you will receive a copy of the notice.
You will have the opportunity to respond to the publication for a
further 14 days after print date, and you will receive a copy of the
notice. After the 14 day period expires your shares will be
automatically defaulted.
Best Regards,
