Bad Marketing or Clever Spam?

This morning I arrived in my office to find an envelope waiting for me on my desk.  Physical mail of any sort is a rarity at the office these days, let alone a hand addressed envelope from someone I don’t know.


Curiosity made me open it and look inside where I found this


Note the custom URL with my name.

NO I did not type that in to a browser and I have no plans on doing so, but it leaves me wondering is this a terrible attempt at marketing something, which missed in both credibility and target audience or is this a clever new spamming technique.  With so many people now understanding that they need to be careful with links that arrive in email, is this an attempt to catch people with their guard down?

If you have any clue what this is feel free to let me know, but I think this will all be in the trash before I leave the office in a few hours.
