I got one of these letters

In it it tells you that you can not call them about the case, the reference number given to me is blank, and despite having My name starting with MR I am reffered to as, Dear Sir or Madam.

I found the letter to be a very frightning one, with some very hard bullying tacktics.

It goes on to say even if it was not me it's my fault for letting people use my internet connection. They go as far to say that it's almost against the law for me not to be using a firewall or AV software.

I wrote to them denying I was anything to do with this and pointed out the flaws in WEP security employed by BT on the home hub. I also pointed out that the HomeHub had a bug (thanks reg) that allowed people to remotely control my router and make any changes they want.

I await a response from them.
