I've received a claim from Adobe regards unlawful selling/IP

Customer Question

I've received a claim from Adobe regards ***** ***** infringement, which to a point is correct/I agree with, as I have sold through a well known auction site. I am being asked to settle outside of formal court proceedings and sign up to several undertakings: some are fine (I agree with) some are somewhat questionable and rather open - agree to compensate and pay for the costs to investigate me and bring the matter to their lawyers. How much do they want...
Do I respond? Owing to the fact the details they have on the claim are not actually mine - wrong name, wrong address (address doesn't exist), effectively I've used the online auction account under fake ID and details. Should I be concerned about the letter from Adobes solicitors? Not talking a huge infringement - perhaps 10 sales on the auction site.

Hi Ash, thanks for prompt reply. I will accept and have done. Perhaps we could discuss this on Tuesday of next week, I am tied for now until then and will have limited time to discuss on the phone. Hope this is okay. To answer the questions : they have not put a figure in the letter to me. They are stating that I pay a reasonable sum in damages for past infringements. In addition, they state I am to compensate them for legal and investigative costs - again no figure is suggested. What have i sold - approx. £1500-2000 I think. I am travelling but can answer questions online before our telephone call if you wish. Again - as per my original question - the online auction account is under completely different details to that of my own, so they are claiming under civil proceedings a person that doesn't exist at an address that doesn't exist. The only link will be financially as the proceeds of sale are transferred from the payment agent to my bank account. Clearly I have ceased selling the software but should I negotiate with the solicitor acting in their behalf or just ignore it.

I have company most of today so will be limited in terms of what questions/information I can pass over the phone as people will be listening in to my conversation - do you have a number I can call you on should I get a 30min window of free time where I can have an open discussion?
