Help me solve a mystery

Yesterday in the mail I received a package addressed to my home with no return address. In it was the key pictured here and a printed letter, addressed to me. The letter begins:
"You have probably already noticed that this is not an ordinary piece of correspondence. You have been selected to participate in a real-world mystery game."
It continues to explain that the item I have, in my case the key, is a clue that leads to the name of the person with the following clue, and that I need to start snooping to find out who'`s the next person, and what it all means!

The typeface on the key is slightly smudged, but as far as I can make out is spells squalloopi.
The letter also has a bizarre graphic at the upper left-hand corner, that turns out to be a matrix called QR code that can be decoded.

I'm conducting my own research, but so far I have come up with nothing. This is intriguing as hell, and I can use your help!
  • Did you also receive a clue in the mail? Let's join forces to figure this out.
  • Do you know how to read QR code?
  • Any suggestions of avenues to search down for clues are welcomed!
Leave me any info in the comments section. I'll continue to post if I make any headway. Signing out - secret agent lippy

p.s. This is NOT an April Fool's related joke, like yesterday's!

    The Internet Anagram Server says...."Quail's Polo". And there you have it.

    pIt was not me. Randerson works for Polo. Maybe she sent it.

    I hope it's not the devil! While Quail's Polo is a great phrase (and possibly the name of my next band), I'm not sure where to go from there.

    I have also tried holding the key in the mirror - no luck.

    Keep 'em coming gang!

    well, it's also an anagram of aqui pollos in spanish. 'chickens here'. i can't see how that would be helpful, but there you have it.

    or more entertainingly into a latin phrase translating to 'whom Lip nourish' or 'whom nourish Lip'

    I hope it has something to do with "squail" - look it up. :)  

  9. # Anonymous Anonymous

    I am afraid I am going to lose my husband to some cult. Is this how Scientologists recruit?
