    Dear Valued Cox customer ,

    Cox Communications has received a notice which claims that someone using your Cox High Speed Internet service has violated U.S. Copyright law by copying or distributing the copyrighted work listed in the attached complaint. THIS COMPLAINT IS FROM A THIRD PARTY AND NOT FROM COX COMMUNICATIONS. Details of this complaint are available through your customer portal.

    We ask that you review the complaint and, if you believe it is valid, promptly take steps to remove or disable access to the infringing material (typically movies, music, books, or TV shows). If other parties are using your account, such as through your WiFi connection, you should ask them to disable file-sharing in peer to peer applications such as BitTorrent, or delete the copyrighted works.

    If you disagree with the claims and believe that no one using your Internet service could have been the source of the alleged infringement, please do not contact Cox Communications to resolve this matter. Cox is simply forwarding the notice to you. However, if you have WiFi, please make sure your WiFi connection is secured with a strong password to prevent unauthorized use of your Internet service. In addition, make sure anti-virus software is installed and up to date to help prevent malware infections.

    The material that you share online or make available for sharing is your responsibility. Cox encourages responsible Internet use, but we do not monitor nor control the information you transmit. We have a policy, however, consistent with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, to take steps when we receive notifications of claimed infringement.

    now I've noticed some problems with this email

    1) the email received doesn't include the said infringed item if any in question it just say to log into the customer portal (red flag in my mind)
    2)ever since the last time I've stayed away from torrents (even legal like linux distros) since the last time, I only downloaded one (the TWL FW files directly from 3ds.guide to fix DS mode on my O2ds since then if I ever pirated I used file hosters or private servers from certain wares sites

    3)about the TWL files the letter was timestamped at 10:40AM EST the dl initiated after 11am

    so somethings not adding up
    also my internet was never cut off this time so that perplexed me more
