    I checked contact mail from my site, that I stopped using, and I see that I recieved mail from legal department of RockStar.

    Part of the mail:

    They sent this message in JULY ! and I read it now in December. I mean they had 4 months to do something and they didn't. My domain is registered with GoDaddy, they could ask them to remove it but didn't. I live in Serbia, piracy laws exist only in theory here.

    Should I worry about this?

    It's fake. Or rockstar can't afford proper lawyers.

    On the off chance that rockstar spent all their money on blackjack and hookers, what is the nature of your website OP?

    I don't think they will manage to do anything to you since they had 4 months and nothing happened. I think that the worst scenario is that they convince Godaddy to take down the site. I wouldn't worry until they do

    Well it would help if you could say what is your website about. Maybe others experienced the same situation and they can help you.

    They didn't threatened to sue you, they are saying that they are already suing you.

    There are tons of websites about that. Why would rockstar games sue him?

    Living in Serbia and having that threat go on for 4 months with no action means you
    are in the clear man. Next time if you put up a risky site then make sure you have
    offshore hosting.

    What's wrong with you people?
    Yeah.
    I do have offshore hosting, but bough the domain from GoDaddy.
    I guess if they wanted to find my information, they wolud talk to GoDaddy. Since GoDaddy didn't take down my domain, nor sent alerts, I suppose they were bluffing...

    Btw, OP just a quick search on Google and I found this http://www.anonymailer.net/. I tested it now and it does work. I used support@nokia.com and the e-mai received is showing the sender I chose. However, at the bottom of the e-mail they will advertise their service, but it can be removed for a $10 fee/year.

    I believe is one of your competitors to be honest so you don`t have anything to worry about.

    As others wrote - the sender's email adress doesn't mean it's legit.
    Maybe it is some sophisticated scam technique. Just think about it.
    they send a email about "taking legal action" and ordering to take down the site
    some percent of people will shit their pants and write back that they took down the site and ask what they can do to stop the legal claim
    Here is when the scammers propose to buy the domain (which now is worthless for the owner since he has taken down the site) for 1/10 value.
    Cheap popular site = profit

    It's fake, the majority of legitimate C&D's come from law firms on retainer from an organization. It's rare for someone internally to get involved with something as pedestrian as a C&D.

    Now, when I look at the mail again little better, it does remind me of CPA scam designes. Black coloured, with yellow letters, also he didn't addressed my name, but my site name. It was not "dear John" but "dear yourwebsite"

    But good prank. I am lucky I didn't see it back in July, I would probably remove my site till now.
