Kevin Trudeau book sells tied to Best Kept Secrets scam?

I, too, received a form letter from "Kate" stating that I was chosen because I'm so incredibly "special" "gifted" "spiritual" etc., they wish me to join their secret organization. This so-called secret organization is supposedly the holder of "Best Kept Secrets" and they wish to send it to consumers absolutely "FREE." They claim that movie stars, government officials and the like are already secret members.
More importantly, I noticed that I received this form letter a week or so after I received the book I ordered for $19.00 plus shipping--authored by Kevin Trudeau titled "debt cures" published by Equity Press, copyright 2008. It's quite clear that the form letter in wide circulation is somehow tied to it since it arrived literally a few days following shipment of the "Debt Cures" book--they had my address! They probably sold my address to these con artists.
Do NOT give any information about yourselves to scam artists. Send these fake form letters to the State Attorney General's office.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
