send PFD via email or certified mail

I am trying to send a PFD letter to AFNI for an old TMobile account from 2006.

 

Can I attach the PFD letter to an email to their recovery team or send it via USPS?

Also, do I need to certify it?

And lastly (sorry for so many questions) does anyone have a good mailing address for them?

 

TIA

Re: send PFD via email or certified mail

My personal opinion, I like to do mine by mail, I just like the paper trail from it.  Some have good luck with email.  So it's just a matter of choice.

Re: send PFD via email or certified mail

PFDs are also a form of GW request, and their acceptance is totally discretionary.

In my opinion, the less formal and legalese they appear, the better.

I would not send a PFD request by a method that requires they provide certification of receipt.  It is, in my opinion, the wrong first impression.
