You gotta wonder what these guys would do if they thought anyone would publicize their letter, say, like posting it on a blog. If it were important to keep it secret, you can imagine how the letter-writer might fear that someone from MI-6 would learn what the letter-writer did, and come after him. I mean, what e-mail scammer could stand up to MI-6?
