Innocent people are receiving demands for payments for porn movies, despite being incapable of ordering them.

What would you do if you found a bill for over 500 pounds for downloading porn along with your newspaper? What about it if was with a 20 page legal document explaining that if you didn’t pay for ‘Army F***ers’, you would be taken to court?

According to Slyck.com and torrentfreak, approximately 25,000 of these letters have gone out; a quick bit of math gives puts the damages being asked for in the neighborhood of £12.5 million. That’s almost double Cloverfield.

The firm allegedly responsible for sending these bills, Davenport Lyons, is attempting to recuperate costs made from these films by charging people who download them; as is fair under copyright law. However, the people getting billed often are incapable of downloading them. They are often in possession of routers though, and a wireless router is very easy to hack into.
