    It sounds like a scam. Does your country have laws? Cause legally speaking they have to prove you broke the law before punishing you.

    Does it say FBI on it? Has your computer been locked? If so it's a scam.

    You should pay only after a fair trial... who are you paying to? Them? The VPS company? Who is this CEG? Never heard of it.

    OP, >>HOW are they asking you to pay? Usually with scams they ask to pay via western union, moneygram, money pack, bitcoin or some other anonymous payment method.

    If they're asking to pay by paypal, credit card, or a legitimate payment method, I'd really like to see a picture of the letter.

    Tell them sue me for what, sounds like there going to grass you for downloading copy right content if 300 not given , just councell your contract and move on, if you here anythink in the future tell them your host vps ask you to take the content off there server and you did so.

    If your not using the downloaded content then there nothink they can Do.

    just change everythink relating to there servers , try to get a vps that ignore compliants .... Regards redarrow ....

    the 300 is a threat or to grass u to the copyright people my opionion

    They have to address you by your name at least? Don't click on any links on the e-mail. Consult a lawyer, although I'm not sure if this website is legit. A simple google search returns multiple results, dig through them to see if this is a scam or not.

    You haven't given enough information to give you proper advice, so if you are worried then seek professional legal advice.
    Personally I wouldn't pay them jack, as I would urge them to take me to court and prove that their claims are true.
    The onus would be on them to prove that you shared copyrighted content, as long as you haven't admitted anything then that could be tricky for them.

    That makes me mad as hell. I'm surprised reddit hasn't DOSd their site.

    On topic of reddit, one guy said he ignored it and nothing happened. Another person seemed paranoid like you are. I find it weird there aren't many debates about this online. As this is 1 slimy ass legal maneuver. They're basically trying, convicting and punishing you over an ip address. Who's to say someone didn't log on to your wifi and download those movies?

    In the US where I live I wouldn't pay that shit. Because I've been to court before, have been to prison, received many fines and know that courts rely 90% on intimidation.

    One "legitimate" fine I decided not to pay as a matter of principal (long story). Haven't paid till this day. That debt was transferred through various collection agencies. I told them over the phone various times to go fuck themselves. Then it got transferred to the FEDs and the calls stopped. Because my cousins a judge he told me what they can and can't do. Long story short they can't do anything but pull money IF I overpay taxes. So I just use a good accountant and they don't get paid shit.

    The choice is ultimately yours. Just realize they'd have to pay more than $300 to bring you to court. And this is where country specific laws are important. I know in the US I'd call their bluff cause they have more chance of losing money than gaining. If I had to go to court I'd deny everything. I'd say I don't know what a torrent is. That a neighbor probably did it. Fuck them.
