    You have 3 options:

    1. Cease and Desist
    2. Move your sites offshore with privacy protection, change the Domain names etc.#
    3. Ignore it, carry on and deal with the consequences.

    Is your site ranked good for a FB fan selling keyword? If not, that is weird how they even found you.

    It may be competition trying to scare you off? Did the email come through your contact form?

    Not sure if real C&D's are also just physically mailed to your house maybe someone can confirm this.
