As Road Hog pointed out .. their verbose letter was riddled with errors. I wonder just how many of these sort of "firms" operate and how many people take the time to do a little research and uncover the truth about them... everyone should, shouldn't they. caveat emptor...
Fancy letter heads and a bombastic way of writing probably work quite frequently in getting people to acquiesce.
But what I find fascinating is where companies keep their registered offices as well as offices. These lot seem to keep their's at their office address. They do not mention their office address anywhere on the letter which is a little strange. And when you look at where their office is, stuck in the middle of a small industrial park miles from anywhere, you have to question whether they are a serious company or not. I would be surprised if they ever meet clients face to face in their offices, because if it was me, I wouldn't be very impressed.
I know that that isn't really a deciding factor but coupled to the biggest sin (spelling the company's name incorrectly), I think that we can sum up these guys' professionalism. And they have done something that I absolutely hate. I am sure that it is legal, but it again shows to me how unprofessional they are - who has written to Anthony? Having some scrawl (I think it says I S H) above the misspelt company name is rather meaningless. If I get a threatening "legal" letter, then I damn well want to know the name of the person who has written to me, and not just the company.
The things which got me were their/her claim to copyright and the misuse of the 'without prejudice' get out. Neither offer any protection in this instance.
I guess when you see things like this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--lj9cDG4KR...1600/claim.jpg that it is easy to get confused.
I believe that if I put things in quotations it's not possible to get sued for liable so here goes;
"These are the sort of sc*m suching leaches that give the legal industry of sc*m sucking leaches a bad name by not even doing it well. Cretins. ( Apologies to Cretins )."
Perhaps it's time to put quotation marks around everything we all write here?
I've finally got a web site to work!! See my page thingy.
Using quotation marks is not a good defence against being sued for libel.
you have to use the word allegedly, allegedly.
A certain West African country comes to mind, wonder if they have a branch Office there......
