    Yes, unfortunetly the address is real. It's unfortunate b/c Craig really exists and is getting inundated with busines cards he doesn't want. At one point, they were getting thousands per week. You may send one at your own discretion, but from what I have heard, they are trying to get people to stop sending them. Having people talk about it in this forum doesn't help the situation either. Just my 2 cents.
