Bit Torrent

After logging onto this so called site, i have now been sent an e-mail to say that i owe them money for the privilege. I installed said programme, then uninstalled it due to it giving me dramas.
Now i received an e-mail last night saying that i had to send them money as i didn't cancel within 14 days.
Now being in Germany i didn't/ couldn't read it :frustrated: . How do i stand and any suggestions on what to do apart from ignoring it, as they seem to have got hold of my address.

Any help always welcome.

Did you read the T's and C's before you signed the contract of use?

No, as it was in German, no excuse i know, but after reading about it at no stage did it mention a 14 day cancellation period. after researching on the net, this is a common problem over here, a bit like the dial-up scams. :pissedoff:
All is not lost. Email them and explain that their T's and C's are not clear and you would like to cancel forth with.
I take it you had to enter bank details or Credit card details? If so, option 2 is to cancel you card and tell them you are not going to pay as you feel that you have been riped off and you are going to the trading standards.

Hope that helps. I am not sure how things work in Germany but just ignore them? They are hardly likely going to sue are they, esp since they seem to have questionable business practices, and in any case, they will usually write you if they intend to sue giving you plenty of warning.

Also, just because they threatened to sue does not mean they will; it is actually quite common to send letters of demand in the hope of the other party will capitulate.*

I would ignore them and see what happens.

* Applies to England, not sure about germany.
To be honest, i thought that this was the actual site for bit torrent :pissedoff: but wrongly like an arrse now know to be wrong. I went through to this site through a credible computer magazine and thought that this was the Greman part to bit torrent.
Cheers for the info all, always appreciated :thumright:
