[AMRadio] Possible BPL ??

Hello-
    I received a letter from an un-identified company in my area { Alvin, TX} titled a " Feasibility Survey", regarding my interest { as a rural potential customer } in high speed broadband internet service. They describe the service as " a small antenna at my house and a broadcast tower a short distance away". Is this the broadband over power lines type affair that we have all been opposing? I wonder why the company does not identify themselves?? The return address is a local post office box.
    A tactic is being used in this "feasibility survey" whereby a dollar bill is enclosed in the letter and it is stated that if you answer "yes" to the first question { " Are you interested in high speed broadband internet service? } then you will be offered the lowest available price to subscribe. A small postage-stamp size window is cut out of the front of envelope so that you can see the dollar bill showing, as a sure method of getting you to open the letter.
    Is this legal? Does anyone else have any experience with this type affair or perhaps who is behind this business??
        Thanks, Byron WA5THJ.
