By an amazing coincidence to my mind the two worst eBay culprits for fake letters and signatures are both selling the same fake letter.

It also looks like Higgins has turned into Mrs Wilding as we now have two very bad fake letters to her as well.

I just noticed this as well, nothing to do with Tolkien (like all these letters really), but probably by the same individual as above.

The address is not overly helpful in the letter, I don't know how anyone could deliver to that address as it is too vague, but if you look at the bottom of the letter, the phone number is really strange (Telephone Terminus 1234). Terminus is the end of the line, usually a bus garage or railway station not someone's house.
