Fictionwise Buywise Club refund?

So, did anyone else get an email today from PenChecks Participant Distribution Notification with the subject "RE: Fictionwise Buywise Club Membership"?

I can post the full content of the email once I get home - it's more than I'm will to try to do to type it a paragraph at a time from my phone screen, with the screen going black every 15 seconds.

It's asking for info to be entered to a PenChecks.com screen (mailing address is what it *says* it's asking for in the email).

I've never heard of these people....

Dear Fictionwise Buywise Club Account Holder
Refund could be a very expensive scam. ????

It does not appear to be a scam.

Thanks for pointing me to that other link. I did an Advanced Search for any posts with the word Fictionwise in it before posting .... I don't know why I didn't get it in my list.

And thanks, Nate, for being our guinea pig.

I guess I thought it would come from B&N if it was legit....

I found more info on the old Fictionwise.com website:

Quote:

Fictionwise Micropay Customer Account Reimbursements

Fictionwise has aligned with PenChecks Trust to facilitate the reimbursement of all remaining Fictionwise Micropay accounts of $5 and over. PenChecks will be distributing a series of account holder notification emails on behalf of Fictionwise. If you should have any questions about this process or PenChecks Trust, you can learn more at their website www.penchecks.com or by calling their toll-free Client Service line at (800) 541-3938.
I really didn't think I had anything left in Micropay, but I do think I had a year left on my Buywise Membership when they closed.

I'm glad someone posted this, my notification triggered a spam rating and went into a spam folder, and I probably would have missed it otherwise. I had something like 5 years left on my membership too.

I didn't get one. Hmmm. I wonder what that means.

On the other thread about this, a lot of people are saying the emails hit their SPAM folders (the email is from PenChecks). You might want to look there - and it has to be the email address that was attached to your Fictionwise account.

Nope, not in spam either, I had already checked.
