Does it make sense now? They still got into my computer to see that i had the movie. MY question is how they did it and how i can prevent it. (After this incident i have encrypted my HDD and any Web-Traffic.)


No, they didn't. _IF_ this is the truth now, they probably just changed the letter to go to your new address. Encrypting your HDD won't help, because they aren't looking at your files. Encrypt your torrents, as ccubed already said.

tpaskell nobody here really cares what illegal activities you do on your free time, unless it's something like killing kids or something...

Lying however, that's super annoying. And dumb lying? That's super annoying AND makes you look dumb! It's a double negative! Don't lie about tech stuff to a tech forum!

Either way, doesn't matter what house you were at. If it was your internet doing the downloading, it's your illegal activities. They'll have your new address and your old one.

EDIT: Oh and here's a suggestion. The way to not get caught doing illegal things is to either A: not do them, or B: be smart enough to not get caught. A seems to have a very high success rate.

Ok, so your friend torrented the film at your old house, presumably on your internet connection which is run by Comcast.

THEN, you moved, keeping the same Comcast service and then got a letter.

Do I have that all right champ?

I've made a diagram for anyone still confused:

Damn KYA is like a modern day Da Vinci. This composition is a classic internet impressionist work dating back to April 7, 2013 which was smack dab in the middle of his blue period. If you look closely at the writing you will see the detailed color use of black and white to seem almost angelic speaking to his roots within the church of internetism. If it was to go to auction today I would say, conservatively, that it would fetch a price of no less than 1.2 million. Since it appeals to both Internet AND Comcast collectors, you may get as much as 1.4 million.

You don't have to bee an ass about it. You are going to tell me that I am the only on
That has ever torrented? I'm doing dumb shit? The only things I have ever torrented have

been games to preview before I buy. Nothing pisses me off more than thinking something is good and then finding out I wasted my money. Hard earned money is not to be wasted.

Why not? You lied to us about the situation in the first place only to confess later that Comcast's actions were in fact due to illegal activity. Why shouldn't we be asses about it?

Just to recap:
Friend torrented something illegal over ISP A.
You moved and signed up with ISP B.
ISP B is now sending you threatening letters because of something you DL'd through ISP A.

I call bullshit for the following reason:

Quote

3 days later I got a copyright infringement notice


In 3 days time, you torrented the item in question, packed up, moved to a new location, and completely switched ISPs with no delays for service connection/disconnection and no delay in mail speed due to the address change?

Either someone in your family is a master relocation planner who needs to quit his/her job and start running seminars on the Master Mover Method, or you STILL haven't told us the whole story.

Get your shit straight or GTFO.

N I had the movie for a while before I moved. Read the post. It was three days after my internet was hooked up that I got the letter. Apparently my shit isn't the only screwed up. Reading helps!

Telling the whole actual story in one coherent post helps more.

I don't see this thread ending well. No one - even the OP - is entirely sure what's real and what's a lie. Additionally, you've come here essentially seeking advice on how to do something illegal and get away with it. We at DIC neither promote nor condone such behavior.

Thread closed.

If there is a problem with these moderation actions, feel free to PM me directly and we can discuss the issue further.
