My advice - don't respond at all simple as that. I had 3 letters over the course of about 3 months before Christmas & ignored them all. I haven't heard a thing from them since. Make sure you keep the letters for reference but ignore them. Once you respond & they sink their teeth into you they are much more likely to keep hounding you. Just my advice. They are like little children, ignore them & they find someone else to annoy.

Any advice is always appreciated but any response here has to factor in that:

a) Most first timers have no idea of their situation or rights. They've received a scary letter asking for a lot of money so what they need is information.
b) The person receiving the letter may not want to ignore it (some people just can't)
c) That they may actually have done something silly (like take the image from the Getty site)
d) No matter how small there is a chance that Getty may take action.

Well I have received no reply in the post, only email and none of the evidence that I have asked for.

Thanks for all of the responses.

Still no reply in the post.  And my email address they have been emailing me on is now deleted as I have a new domain.

So unless I get letters from them I will be none the wiser.
