I received a letter the other day about this. It basically looks like a
invoice, but the domain name mentioned is for a .net address and not a .co
one (same 3rd level domain though). Dirty bastards, I tried to ring them to
give them a ear full but couldn't get through.

Oh well, one more company to add to the list of companies I will never ever
do business with.
