 Yes, both I and one particular customer of mine have gotten a lot of
snailmail of this type, especially from DRoC (Domain Registry of Canada).
DRoC adds the further deception of making their envelopes look similar to
Government of Canada mailings - similar light brown envelopes and similar
red maple leaf logo.

Since DRoC is actually located in Canada, I wish our federal authorities
would crack down on them and put them out of business.  Surely there must
be some grounds on which to do this? - the deceptive envelopes and logo,
the shady contents, etc.  And CIRA, where are you when we need you?  Can't
DRoC be deregistered for ".ca" at least, due to unethical practises?
